A doctoral degree in an area of operational research or similar equivalent industrial experience is preferable, as well as a solid understanding of mathematics and statistical principles. Finally, strong programming skills are essential (Java and Python are preferred) as well as familiarity with software engineering best practices (such as version control, OOP, unit testing, CI/CD) and cloud technologies.
