LUMICKS is currently the fastest growing high-tech company in the Amsterdam area. We offer the chance to be part of an important mission: enabling researchers to understand complex biological processes at the cellular and molecular levels, which is critical for cancer research and drug development.

As the marketing intern, you will be responsible for setting up the marketing strategy in China and for growing our customer base in the Asia Pacific Region. Together with the customer success team, you will create high-quality and high-impact content to engage our customers, build a strong brand in China and create interest in LUMICKS’ instruments in the region. You will join our team in the HQ in Amsterdam for a minimum of 5 months.

Location: Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Research & Development

Role

As an Application development Scientist you develop new LUMICKS product and product features to create impact and unlock market potential. You are part of the R&D workflow team and take part of multidisciplinary projects that aim to develop new applications, new product features or improve existing products. Within these projects you are responsible for ensuring product workflow specifications align with market requirements that are set by the Product Manager. Application development scientists typically have a specialization in Biophysics and a good understanding of Single Molecule force spectroscopy.

Location: The Netherlands

As an immunology application development scientist, you will be responsible for the development of novel z-Movi cell-cytometry applications. You will establish and perform groundbreaking experiments at LUMICKS as well as in collaboration with the company’s strategic partners.

You will take ownership of the development of the z-Movi technology within the framework of immunology and immune-oncology assay development. Additionally, you will assist PI’s and industry leaders in current applications of z-Movi technology. You will be responsible for ensuring the success of new strategic technological partnerships in academia and industry to improve the z-Movi cell cytometry application. The ideal candidate will connect easily with PhD and PI level researchers in fields such as biology and immunology and demonstrate a clear understanding of their technical and application needs.

Location: Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Sales

Introduction:
Reporting directly to the Sales Director, the Sr. Sales Manager will assume overall responsibility for the sales of all LUMICKS products throughout the east coast. You drive sales opportunities forward in both industry (pharma, biotech) and academia while working with the Business Development team to create pipeline and teaming up with product managers to execute a successful global Sales and Marketing strategy.

LUMICKS has come to market as the supplier of instruments for dynamic single-molecule and cell research – a rapidly evolving niche in the fundamental biology research field. Our high-performance instruments allow for the investigation into the fundamental cause of disease and the potential for drug optimization. We offer the chance to be part of an important mission: To improve human health by unlocking dynamic single-molecule and cell analysis. With ever-increasing adoption of our technologies by leading institutes from all over the world, including Berkeley, Max-Planck, Rockefeller University and ShanghaiTech, LUMICKS is now expanding its team.

Software

LUMICKS is bringing novel tools for single-molecule biophysics and cell avidity to market, enabling scientific researchers across biology and medicine to unlock new types of experiments.

We produce z-Movi, a unique instrument that can directly measure the overall strength of the interaction between cells (“avidity”) and could have an enormous impact on research in immunology, paving the way for new therapies for cancer. In collaboration with end-users, we have developed a fast and intuitive workflow software that takes you from defining your parameters to viewing your data in no time.

We also build C-Trap, which can be used to “grab” a single molecule and apply precise mechanical forces to it. At the same time, one can visualize the molecule using highly-sensitive fluorescence microscopy. Our customers use it to watch DNA being copied by the molecular machinery of the cell, or observe molecular “engines” walking across the scaffolding structures of a human cell. LUMICKS systems are currently in use in opinion-leading labs across the globe, including Stanford, Johns Hopkins University, Tsinghua University, NIH, Max Planck Institute, TU Delft, and Imperial College London.

We’re an academic spin-off from a research group at VU University Amsterdam. We care deeply about providing our users with easy-to-use, reliable software that actively supports Open Data and Reproducible Science.

We use the following technologies. When applying, it is fine to be familiar with a subset of these:

C++17 (soon 20) for the core code, Qt5 (QML) for the UI and Python 3 for bindings. CMake builds everything and Conan manages the dependencies. Libraries we use include abseil, asio, caf (C++ actor framework), catch2, cereal, fmt, opencv, ranges-v3 and spdlog. Our Python bindings are implemented using pybind11.

As part of the software engineering team, you are flexible in taking on tasks spanning all aspects of software development. This can include:
