Dear Ranchers,
I have a question regarding to job profile.
I am good at mathematics and a c, C++, Java programmer by profession. I would like to know the company who need guys with strong math background and understanding.
Where the company work on challenging problems that can be solved by math applications.
This would help me in pursuing my career in math and programming.

Quite a bit depends on the type of company you work with. Consulting companies are usually a good bet as they tend to be the ones implementing more complex solutions that involve mathematical computations. As far as industries go, the one place I had experience with was a real estate management software company. Their solution required complex statistical analysis to come up with market trends.
