    • Database and data-storage technology (SQL, no-SQL).
    • Cloud-native technology and working with a cloud provider (Azure, but also AWS or Google Cloud can fit).

  • You will be part of a multidisciplinary team that not only creates business-critical but very often highly innovative and even disruptive platforms. For example, the demand for IoT and AI solutions is growing steadily within the chemical sector.

  • Opportunity to be part of the world player in the field of chemistry.
