Front-end developer

Starting July, 2023

Mechelen, Belgium

About us

A crucial mission for any heritage institution is to optimally preserve cultural objects and works of art for future generations. The collection environment is crucial in this context. To limit object deterioration, conservation teams need to ensure a correct and stable environment.

CHARP provides museums with a unique decision support software that brings together data from our discrete wireless sensor devices and from existing systems to monitor temperature, relative humidity, and light levels around valuable artefacts and collections. It provides detailed actionable insights and sensible alert handling. Moreover, it fosters effective communication with colleagues and external partners, and helps identify potential energy saving measures.

We are a spin-off company of KU Leuven with headquarters in Mechelen, Belgium. Our team comprises people from very different backgrounds: software developers, architects/engineers, business leaders, and journalists. In the coming months, we aim to grow our small yet dedicated and ambitious software team.
