The AO Philosophy

“In the company, we’ve grown steadily seventeen percent a year for the last twenty years. Along the way, there’s always been financial stability in the company. Our guiding strategy has been, ‘If you seek profit, you may succeed. If you seek to be of service, you will profit.’” ~ Dr. Anil Chaudhary

“Applied Optimization is a family type of environment where we can roll up our sleeves and get into the difficult problems that are facing the country in terms of technology both in space and material sciences. We work on problems that other people have not been able to solve in a straightforward way.” ~ Dr. Tamara Payne

“My title is software engineer, but I don’t just sit at a desk and write code all day. I am constantly collaborating with both management and my colleagues. I’m also helping with the research and helping plan what we’re going to do for projects and developing and implementing the code.” ~ Shaylah Mutschler

“Working at Applied Optimization has helped me get experience working on lots of different projects. Everything I’ve learned, I write down and remember. You just keep adding things to your toolbox that will help you solve problems for the rest of your career.” ~ Derek Boone
