10 Mar 2022 Software Engineer, OR Specialist

Toggle description

Salvagnini Italia SpA is looking for software engineers to enforce the software department to develop CAD\CAM applications in order to optimize the use of his machine tool for the sheet metal working process.



Job title: software engineer

Type of Contract: permanent contract

Division: Software Department

Duty Station: Sarego, Vicenza, Italy (38 hours per week applied, i.e. Friday working time is from 8.00 up to 14.00, smart working available on a basis of 2 days each week)



Salvagnini produces machine tools for the flexible thin sheet metal industry. It produces punching, laser cutting, automatic panel bender and press brake machines.

Salvagnini is the worldwide leader in automatic panel bender machines and one of the most important players on the other sheet metal machines.

It stands out as a system supplier, that consists of a set of linked machine to automatize the material flow from the raw material (rectangular flat sheets with commercial sizes) to the finite product with a very low human intervention.

For this purpose, besides proper tool machines, Salvagnini designs, produces and sells many connection systems for the material handling of semi-finished and finished products.

Salvagnini is a group, with production site in Italy (Sarego, Brendola, Avellino) and Austria (Linz) and numerous selling and post-selling sites.

Salvagnini machine tools distinguish themselves for their flexibility, that is the ability to load and execute a different program without machine idle times: this requires the programming time of the machine to be comparable to the cycle time (less than a minute in many cases). The software department then develops software applications that let the user transform a drawing of his product (CAD) into a program for the tool machines (CAM) that he will use in an optimized way.

To this end, we intensively use OR optimization algorithms, combined with computational geometry.

The software department accounts as core values the knowledge sharing and the availability to work in a group, together with the development and the maintenance of the complete application’s life cycle.



The software applications are typically desktop one in Microsoft environment, developed using VisualStudio in C++ and dotNet language.

Traditionally and still today, communication networks are operated in a
rather static and conservative manner. This has good reasons:
communication networks constitute a critical infrastructure of our
digital society, and dynamic optimizations always come with risks of
instabilities or even outages. However, it is also known that in principle
a more dynamic network operation can greatly improve the efficiency of
networks: empirical studies show that communication traffic contains
much structure, i.e., it is bursty and skewed. More dynamic network
operations are also useful to support adaptive policy changes, service
relocations, or emerging “self-driving networks". This project is
motivated by the desire to leverage the benefits of more flexible
network operations but without sacrificing the reliability guarantees of
more conservative operations. In fact, we believe that a more adaptive
network operation can even improve the dependability of a network.

We aim to lay the theoretical and algorithmic foundations of more
adaptive networks, using algorithmic tools from dynamic graph
algorithms, approximation algorithms, online algorithms and distributed
algorithms. In addition to our theoretical contributions, we also aim to
show the practical importance of our approaches (possibly in
collaboration with an Internet Service Provider).

The positions are 30h/week and shared by the research groups “Theory and
Applications of Algorithms”, led by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Monika Henzinger,
and “Communication Technologies”, led by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Stefan Schmid.
Both research groups are internationally well-known and received ERC
grants in the past.

For more information, please contact Prof. Henzinger and Prof. Schmid by

This position is in the Product and Process Systems Engineering Group. The investigators are members of the Centre for Process Systems Engineering (CPSE), a joint centre between Imperial College London and University College London.

The remit of this role is within the £1.5M EPSRC project “Hydrogen Infrastructure Uncertainty Management for Heat Decarbonisation (HUMAN)”. The project considers tactical and operational decisions related to the deployment of a hydrogen-led system and its interaction with the power grid across spatial and temporal scales. Employing the tools developed within the project the optimal mix of electrification and hydrogen-based decarbonisation of heat will be explored for different regions in the UK.

Key responsibilities include:
•To develop and implement novel methods for multi-stage optimisation under uncertainty.
•To develop and implement machine learning approaches for quantifying and incorporating uncertainty considerations in optimisation problems.
•To develop and implement decomposition/iterative techniques for the solution of large-scale energy systems models.
•To plan and execute real options analysis of hydrogen supply infrastructure to account for and manage risk under different scenarios (including use of hydrogen only for transport, or use if for both transport and heat).
•Plan and prepare papers from own and related research to appropriate peer reviewed journals, international conferences and research seminars.
•Collaborate with other PDRAs and PhD student team members for exchange of knowledge, best practice, as well as to carry out coordinated pieces of research.
•Further information can be found at the Job Description document.

Duration of the role is for 24 months in the first instance.
Key Requirements
The successful candidate must have a PhD in Engineering, Operations Research or Computer Science with advanced understanding of supply chain optimisation and optimisation under uncertainty is required. The applicant must either have already completed a doctorate, or have submitted their thesis prior to taking up the post.

Proven publications track record in developing novel techniques for optimisation under uncertainty and/or the efficient solution of stochastic/robust optimisation programs. Experience in machine learning for uncertainty quantification and modelling. Experience with energy systems models (e.g. UK TIMES) and complex energy datasets. Proficiency with optimisation packages (e.g. GAMS, Pyomo). Experience in programming languages (e.g. Python, Julia) and maintaining online repositories (e.g. GitLab/GitHub). Candidates must have excellent communication and team-working skills, the ability to write high-standard reports and work collaboratively with colleagues to generate high-quality research outputs.

Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment Please note: appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (salary £31,542 - £33,257 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
