In 2050 there will be 9 billion people on our planet. One of the biggest challenges of the 21st century will be how to ensure global food production for all those people. Phenospex is a young and multicultural biotech company located at the Maastricht-Aachen area in the heart of Europe. We develop and produce sensor technologies to assess and analyse plant performance fully automatically and at high-throughput. Our customers are plant scientists, plant breeders, crop protection industry and fertilizer industry and we help them to detect new plant varieties with beneficial features to ensure global food production.
Phenospex was founded in 2009 in Aachen with the simple idea to provide a device that measures plant sizes automatically. Since then, we have been constantly growing. Today, we are a mixed intercultural team with an interdisciplinary background from biology, physics, computer science and engineering. Our headquarter is located in Heerlen (NL) directly on the border between Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. From here we serve customers in more than 20 countries.
To keep up the growth of the last years we are looking for eager people to join our team. Our sensor development group that focusses on improving the sensor technology itself needs people with skills in mechanical-, electrical- or software-engineering. Besides that, our data analysis group is constantly looking for new software developers with a passion for image processing, machine learning or database design. Last, our sales department needs people with interdisciplinary thinking, that can translate the needs from the customer into a technical requirement and a working product.
