We are Kapernikov

Kapernikov is a no-nonsense ICT consultancy team which aims to help clients get the most out of their data by managing them better. Since our establishment in 2011, we have steadily grown to a versatile team of about 35 enthusiastic people.

Our customers are mainly companies in the industries of utilities, manufacturing and machine building. We run operational intelligence projects aimed at giving them insights in their industrial processes, so they can make operational decisions with confidence, and machine vision projects aimed at helping them improve the performance of their machines and operators.

We approach each challenge starting from our customer’s goals and select the most appropriate technology for each project. When an off-the-shelf solution cannot be found, we develop customized solutions. We love to work in teams of both Kapernikov and customer colleagues, so we can benefit from the cross-pollination of our different backgrounds and experiences.

Kapernikov is managed using the principles of Sociocracy 3.0, where everyone has a say. Work-life balance is not a mere buzzword but our way of life.

What the job entails

Do you have what it takes to join us?

When it comes to talent, we’re quite picky here at Kapernikov. We’re not asking just anyone to help us shape the future of Industry 4.0. However, you might wonder whether you have it in you to become part of the Kapernikov team. Let’s see what you’re made of.

Did you ever develop software for fun?

Does automating machines make your heart beat faster?

Do you keep up with the latest technologies?

Would you like to solve complex puzzles in industrial environments

Then you might have the motivation.

Do you have experience with automation?

Do you have a strong opinion on what Linux distro we should use?

Did you ever automate a process? Or something else that made an impact on the ‘real’ world?

Then you might have the skills.

Are you usually the guy or gal who sees the solution first?

Can you explain difficult stuff without losing your audience?

Do you understand how a piece of technology can really make a difference?

Then you might have the talent.

Congratulations if you made it this far.

But do you have the job?

We are looking for an embedded C++ enthusiast. Both beginner- and expert-level candidates are welcome, but you need to have the motivation and talent to become an expert.





Algemene vereisten

Convince us of your skills:

You have proven experience in C++, Python & industrial control systems.

You have notions of ‘classical’ automation – PLC/Scada control, electrical signals, sensor technology.

Send in a Github link, come over and demo a self-made project.

Our customers usually explain their problems from an operational standpoint. Our solutions however tend to get very technical. If you can build the bridge between those two worlds or if you have it in you to become our technical wizard, then you might just get the job.

You communicate fluently in English. Knowledge of Dutch and/or French is a plus.
