 Who we are

XenomatiX is located in the Research park of Leuven (Haasrode).  We have developed a technology that deserves its place in the car of the future.  Under any lightening and weather condition, our laser based systems observes the road and the environment with high precision and resolution.  This will increase comfort and safety.  In combination with a (semi-)active suspension, our sensors turn cars into flying carpets, neutralizing potholes and bumps.  Detection of (dangerous) objects and other traffic participants will allow cars to navigate autonomously.

We have a strong focus on results.

We have a well-defined strategic plan and need talented colleagues to be part of it.

You will become member of a team of driven, no-nonsense professionals with a strong ambition to bring new optical technology into mass production cars.

What we offer

Job satisfaction, the knowledge that you’re making the difference, the celebration of successes, the visibility of your contribution to the company’s business.

Since we expect the company to grow strongly in the years to come, you will have the chance to play different roles, grow and learn.  Most likely, your job(s) at XenomatiX will remain interesting for a very long time.

And of course we offer a market conform salary, in line with your expertise.
