We develop completely new machine platforms, assist users in their deployment, and work together with chemical R&D to ensure a complete solution for our customers.

What do we offer?
A work environment where you’re free to grow, choosing your own way to approach a problem. A wide variety of tasks; everything from taking a machine from an idea all the way to full scale production use at a customer, making mobile apps, helping with our first forays into machine learning and of course competing in our weekly Lego building competition.
