Thoucentric - Manager - Operations Research (5-15 yrs)

Bangalore Job Code: 673130

Manager Operations Research:

OR Scientist will lead our solution strategies for a wide range of OR problems including, route and network optimization, capacity constrained vehicle routing problems with time windows for deliveries and pickups, dynamic rerouting to cope with disruptions, and scheduling and routing of line haul trucks across the transportation network, stockout predictions etc.

We are looking for a motivated individual with a recognized background in mathematical optimization, including numerical solution of continuous and discrete problems using exact, approximation algorithms, and heuristic methods. We are looking for someone with hands on experience and expertise in the transportation space, particularly with routing problems and network flows. The person should have current or prior academic experience with a heavy practical consultative component, or industry experience conducting research in the area of mathematical/statistical modeling and analysis.

The incumbent analyses and models produced by the team will guide business decisions by highlighting opportunities, identifying correlations, defining experiments, and determining cause and effect relationships. You will partner closely with many client groups such as operations, IT, retail, and finance teams to support various business initiatives.

The candidate will work closely with client leadership and the rest of the operations research and data science teams to leverage the expertise of each individual to construct models, perform analyses, and derive relevant metrics. The candidate must have relevant domain knowledge to teach and mentor group members and to critique models and approaches taken by the group in terms of business relevance, technical validity, software architecture, and computational performance. The candidate must have the skills to write documents that influence important decisions by clearly articulating the strategy, business impact, and technical challenges.

Basic Qualifications :

- Ph.D. in Operations Research, Statistics, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science or a related field with publications in refereed academic journals.

- At least 5 to 15 years of experience in solving complicated optimization and machine learning problems for transportation networks or analogous disciplines developing a strategy for large-scale networks.

- Experience designing and implementing transportation optimization models with focus on volume and route planning and re-planning; labor and facilities planning. Excellent communication skills, both written and oral with both technical and business people. Ability to speak at a level appropriate for the audience. Experience applying these skills in both academic teaching environment and a business setting is a plus.

- Excellent writing skills for presenting business cases and to document the models and analysis and present the results/conclusions in order to influence important decisions.

- A working knowledge of smooth and non-smooth optimization methods accompanied by associated expertise in the use of tools and the latest technology (e.g. CPLEX, Gurobi, XPRESS).

- A working knowledge of exact, approximation algorithms, and heuristic methods for solving difficult optimization problems like vehicle routing and network design problems.

- The ability to implement models and tools through the use of high-level modeling languages (e.g. AMPL, Mosel, R, Matlab).

- Experience prototyping and developing software in traditional programming languages (C++, Java, Clojure, Python).

- Familiarity with SQL and experience with very large-scale data. The ability to manipulate data by writing scripts (Perl, Ruby, Groovy) a plus.

- Statistical analysis, machine learning and data-modeling in a database environment a plus

- Exhibits excellent judgment

- Has relentlessly high standards

- Thinks strategically, but stays on top of tactical execution

- Expects and requires innovation of her/his team

- Thinks big and has convictions

- Results oriented
