Modelling Expert - System Dynamics

Company Description

Making decisions in the modern world is difficult. How can we predict the outcome of things which have no precedent? A new illness might fundamentally change our lives and work; a single grounded ship could affect global supply chains for weeks; a third example could go here.

At Silico, we believe simulation is the key, combining hard data with human knowledge and intuition, enabling foresight in the face of radical uncertainty. We're building a platform which allows people to build models of their world collaboratively, simulating possible futures and optimising for a brighter outcome.

We believe in a transparent, evidence-based approach to decision-making. We want to give people insight into their problems and help them reach reasoned conclusions, with models they can fully understand. We'd love for you to join us to help make this a reality.

Silico is a Venture-backed software company, headquartered in London with customers around the world.

Job Description 

We're looking to add a modelling expert who can work with our Enterprise customers to develop proof-of-concept models. Over time, you'll work with customers to grow their simulation capability to drive improved decision making at some of the world's largest organisations.

You'll be building advanced, production-grade simulation models in Silico. You'll have input and scope to think about how best to model real-world systems and gain exposure to a wide range of industries and challenges. Our simulation experts are client-facing so you'll need excellent interpersonal skills, as well as the ability to run complex modelling projects efficiently and to tight deadlines.

You'll also become a key internal user of the Silico software, so you can expect to work closely with the Product and Engineering teams to identify and scope out product enhancements as we build out our next-generation Simulation platform.





  • 2-3 years experience building production-grade System Dynamics models
  • Comfortable in a client-facing role
  • Demonstrable ability to deliver complex projects to deadlines

Desirable to have knowledge of or experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Data integration via APIs
  • Numerical Optimisation
  • Sensitivity Analysis
  • Data Science Workflows
  • Business Intelligence / dash-boarding tools (e.g. Tableau, PowerBI)

Silico is a remote working company, but applicants must have the right to work and reside within the UK.
