·       Passion for your profession.

·       Creative thinking and a proactive style of work.

·       Proficiency in English language (verbal & written).

What to expect from us:

Working in a start-up means that your work contributes directly to the direction of the company. Together, we work on awesome and challenging projects in a high-tech and innovative environment. Everyone has their own specialty and together we form a dynamic and diverse team.

Your workplace will be in Enschede, the Netherlands. As we have become used to in recent years, occasionally working at home is possible. The working language of our company is English, and we encourage and facilitate acquisition of Dutch language skills.

Employment conditions:

The position is full-time. Your salary depends on both your education and experience. We have many educational opportunities, a generous number of vacation days and we offer a fully paid pension and attractive start up compensation. Equity plan participation available after the first year.
