Building a team that is eager to tackle the biggest challenges

Work with us!

Chromodynamics is a small company with big ambitions. However, these ambitions mean nothing if we can’t enjoy ourselves along the way! The people we look for have just as big of a drive for making a difference as we do. If you want the taste of succes and are ready for a rapidly changing working environment, this is the place for you.


We have a commitment to perform as one of the best in the industry. That means a solid foot on the gas with a lot of rewards in return. Take a look at our openings and send your CV with motivational letter to see if we can make it happen together.


Chromodynamics is developing a line of multispectral cameras that can make images of the composition of materials in real-time. We are doing this with the goal of forcing breakthroughs in multiple application areas to maximise our positive societal impact. The technology has the potential to advance life science research, improve cancer diagnostics, streamline development of new medicines, lead to more sustainable food production, and facilitate more efficient manufacturing. In addition, we are developing custom spectroscopy and spectral imaging solutions for our customers.

To help drive all these developments forward, we are looking for an experienced optical design engineer or a scientist with experience in the development of optical instrumentation. The role involves two main responsibilities.

First, you will become responsible for the assembly and testing of a spectroscopy system to be delivered to ITER, the world’s first power-producing fusion reactor ( This will involve activities like designing and building test setups, constructing the instrument, measuring its performance, comparing results to the technical specifications, optimising the design where necessary, and analysing and reporting on the measured test data.

Second, you will become responsible for the optical design of our main product, a high- speed, high-resolution, snapshot multispectral camera. The existing preliminary design shall be developed into a product that is compatible with high-end optical microscopes. The activities will include performing feasibility studies, detailing requirements and specifications, creating conceptual designs, modelling and optimising those designs in Zemax, building cost models, procuring (custom) optical components, building and testing prototypes, refining the designs with customers, and patenting the unique inventions.

In close collaboration with the founders and a growing team, you will have the opportunity to turn your ideas into unique instruments. As one of the early employees of the company, your work will have a significant impact on its success. Therefore, we set the hiring bar high. In return, meaningful participation options will be available and you will be in an excellent position (and expected) to grow into a leadership position as the company grows.
