Dutch technology, global impact

SPEKTRAX is moving fast. We are looking for new colleagues who don't ask us what to do but who will actively help us achieve our goals. Are you interested in being part of something big? Do you want to change the world for millions around the globe by providing new, faster, and reliable diagnostics? This is your chance to make a tremendous impact on the global health issues that we are currently all facing. Are you ready to join Spektrax?


Your personal mission

Our company has only just been set up, and you will be the first developer on our payroll. This means that you will have a lot of influence on (and responsibility for) the way we develop our tech infrastructure and grow our team. Your work will affect almost every aspect of our product. Your responsibilities at Spektrax will be varied, and include:


  • Building out and maintaining our web-based testing application, which will be used by customers around the world
  • Collaborating with our data science team to productionise our ML system
  • Working on our (physical production) quality control pipeline, which includes UX work as well as developing code to detect manufacturing defects
  • Maintaining our Google Cloud environment
  • At Spektrax there is a very strong interaction between the data science and coding team and the laboratory team. This means that as a full-stack developer at Spektrax you are given many opportunities to actively think along about how our product is generated, and thus also have a significant influence on how the product will ultimately work in the real world.
