Who is LLamasoft?

Our supply chain experts pioneered supply chain design technology and best practices and we’re not stopping there!

Why the Llamas?

Llamas are cute, furry animals, and who wouldn’t love a llama?  Actually, we admire llamas as sturdy pack animals, and they were a critical element of ancient South American supply chains.  We also admire the Dalai Lama as a deep thinker, philosopher, and teacher of the highest order.  We’re inspired by both of these types of llamas, and our people and products reflect a combination of determined, hard-working effort and intellectual, creative, and highly sophisticated thinking.  One L for each!

We work to live, we don’t live to work
Our company is here to help support us, our families, and our life’s goals, not the other way around.

Hairy, bald, big, short, fast, slow; there are many types of LLamas in the herd. It’s still one herd.

We’re a fun, yet focused team.
We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we take the work we do for our customers very seriously. And when we need to recharge our brains, you can find us playing ping pong, pool or video games in the LLama Lounge.

    First round was HR which was chilled out. 2nd round was technical where 5 problems in mixed integer programming were given (shared screen) which were different variations of the transportation problem like p-median problem, service level constraints
