We are looking for engineers who are passionate about data and want to develop leading edge algorithms and theoretical approaches to solve optimization problems.
If you are an expert on operations research, computational complexity theory and search problems & algorithms this work is for you.

Essential Responsibilities:
  • Define, develop and test an optimization algorithm based on client’s needs.
  • Try new techniques to improve the optimization complexity and running time.
  • Prepare and present the technical material during the technical reviews.
  • Maintain direct communication with multiple teams, such as GE Flight Efficiency Services.
  • Coach and mentor others in the analysis, design, test and/or integration required to define and support the implementation and validation of the optimization algorithms that meet business needs.
  • Lead the solution of complex technical problems.
  • Assure that proper documentation of technical data is generated to substantiate the assigned projects.
