We are looking for Applications Engineers who will work with our recently acquired Genohm SLIMS (LIMS and ELN) platform be part of our dynamic team. Labs have traditionally used pen and paper (lab notebooks) to record their activities. They printed out protocols to know what has to be done on the wet bench. Some more advanced labs even used electronic spreadsheets to record their data and do their analysis. But times have changed and technological advances require labs to move to more advanced solutions, which will automate their procedures and help them better track their activities. If you decide to join our team you will be working directly with our clients. The tasks you will be performing are varied and a creative mind is needed to be able to identify and implement customer solutions.

As a SLIMS Application Engineer, you will be responsible for building and maintaining a good relationship with our customers, for configuring our flagship platform to match the requirements of the lab, and for implementing workflows.
