Job Description

About us

cheMastery is standardising and automating how research and manufacture are carried out in chemical laboratories. cheMastery is creating a software-hardware solution to revolutionise the work that is currently done manually.

The chemical industry is a large and ever-growing market however, the work is still carried out mostly manually and chemical processes remained unchanged over the past 160 years. The lack of standardisation and digitisation created many problems for this fundamental industry, including reproducibility and cost/time efficiency which cost millions annually.

You will be responsible for the design of a specific part of the system, including practical prototype building and assembly testing. You will coordinate with electronic engineers developing sensor solutions and PCBs as well as chemist users.

Your job will include commissioning and deployment of your system. You will have the opportunity to observe your solution first-hand in customers’ sites.
