Quintiq, part of Dassault Systèmes, is looking for a Software Craftsman. Are you an expert in your field? Would you like to join forces with a team of other brilliant developers to improve one of the most advanced planning and scheduling software packages in the world? Do you love to develop software and not see programming as a stepping stone to becoming a manager? Then please read along because Quintiq may be just the place for you.

Quintiq is an Application Suite that optimization specialists use to solve some of the most complex planning puzzles. In Quintiq R&D, we build the core software used by our business units, partner and customer IT departments to model Advanced Planning and Scheduling Solutions. Our R&D department maintains and continuously improves both the Front and the Back end of our system. In order to do that we always attempt to use the most robust technologies possible.

To give you a small example, the heart of the Quintiq server system is formed by an in-memory transactional, configurable object model so that it can be controlled by a domain-specific procedural/functional language (DSL). Every customer runs the same backend system and the Quintiq server sees the model simply as data. The components we work on include: OS abstraction layers, internationalization layers, custom high-speed memory managers, in-memory transactional system engines, Storage Engines, schedulers, language parser(s), JIT compilers, object relational mapping, internal message queues, DSL components, HPC, Integration to 3rd party systems such as Databases, Message Queues, GIS backends, LDAP Servers, SOAP servers, reporting engines. We design, build and maintain these components and extend the software in new directions to service our growing customer base.

Are you an expert in a certain field, for example optimization, programming language development, scalability, distributed frameworks, high performance computing, lock free development, database engine’s, GUI development, memory management or software transactional memory? Or are you maybe an expert in another area that you think we may benefit from? Then please do not hesitate to contact us.
