ExxonMobil: Operations Research Engineer - Bengaluru, Karnataka, India

What Role You Will Play In Our Team
Operations Research Engineers function as internal consultants to support improved decision-making by developing models using operations research methods, such as mathematical optimization and stochastic simulation. They will work in a team environment to apply their technical skills, project management, and business domain knowledge to develop technological and analytics solutions in partnership with business units to influence and improve key business decisions.

The Operations Research Engineer is expected to work with global, cross-functional stakeholders to understand business problems (both commercially and technically), translate them into mathematical problems, and apply operations research methods to create solutions for decision support. This role will primarily work on business problems related to supply chain and commercial functions, especially for Fuels, Lubes, and Chemical products.

What You Will Do

  • Participate in the scoping of business problems to apply operations research methods* Work with key contacts to identify and translate data requirements which represent the system and constraints to be modeled* Develop custom mathematical optimization and/or stochastic simulation models by applying the following: linear programming, mixed-integer programming, system dynamics simulation, and/or discrete event simulation* Proactively drive cross-functional alignment across organizations (as needed) to validate model solution quality* Create documentation to explain how the operations research methods are applied, and conduct reviews with senior technical professionals to ensure technical quality* Ensure effective and efficient pace of work by managing project timelines, coordinating project team members, and providing timely updates to stakeholders* Work effectively within cross-functional, global teams (including business domain experts, product owners, decision science engineers, and IT) to design, develop, deploy, and sustain operations research-based solutions that are scalable and with commercial-grade quality

About You
Skills and Qualifications

  • Bachelors or Master’s degree preferred in Industrial Engineering or Applied Mathematics (or relevant field)* Ability to translate general requirements and long-term deadlines into shorter-term work tasks, self-direct work, and monitor progress* Solicts inputs from subject matter experts (SMEs) and engages with cross-functional teams to drive results* Strong analytical skills with 2+ years’ experience in applying operations research modeling methods (mathematical optimization and/or stochastic simulation) for commercial-grade quality solutions* Competent in developing mathematical optimization models using mathematical modeling languages such as AIMMS, GAMS, AMPL, Pyomo, Gurobipy, etc. * Competent in developing system dynamics simulation models using software such as Stella Architect, VenSim, AnyLogic, etc. * 5+ years’ experience in applying operations research modeling methods (mathematical optimization and/or stochastic simulation) for commercial-grade quality solutions* Curious mindset in understanding business problems and their related factors to develop solutions* Ability to view complex subjects from both a high level and detailed perspective, and communicate appropriately with different audiences
