IMSystems

Your career at IMSystems starts today

Do you want to be part of a team that develops the most revolutionary pure hardware technology of this century? Then a career at IMSystems is right for you!

 

Working at a start-up means working in a small and enthusiastic team that is very ambitious to start and accelerate a technical revolution. The team consists of two tea slurping Dutchies, four normal coffee drinking Dutchmen, one chocolate drinking Tunisian, one redneck and a strange tiny guy with multiple nationalities that we refer to as the Strong Viking Warrior.

 

Since we are a small team everyone has numerous responsibilities that change on a regular basis due to the continuous growth. This means a flexible mindset is required.

At the same time, we try to give our employees some flexibility in working times and days off as well. Rather you are an early bird or a night owl, both will work at IMSystems

 

Being in a young team also has many perks like a lot of social events, which includes BBQs and company weekends. Although our team members are actually quite young at the moment, older employees are highly appreciated as well. It is all about the mindset and as the Dutch saying goes: “You’re as old as you feel you are”.

“Qualifying to certain requirements is not what made me an employee of IMSystems. They were, and still are, looking for people who can add value to the team and the company. During my application procedure, I discovered that IMSystems is looking for some kind of mindset. A way of thinking and handling to improve the team, product and so the company. IMSystems is just always trying to find a position where you can prosper in a way that suit you as a person, to become the best possible version of yourself.
