Intuitive software for better preventive conservation

A crucial mission for any heritage institution is to optimally preserve cultural objects and works of art for future generations. To limit object deterioration, preventive conservation efforts aim to ensure an optimal collection environment.

With CHARP Art Care, a KU Leuven project, we help conservation teams to optimise the environment in which collections are stored and displayed. At the same time we help them evaluate potential energy saving measures, and thus limit their carbon footprint.

Our mission is to help as many organisations as we can to make this transition. To do so, we provide environmental monitoring systems and software that help conservation teams effectively monitor and understand their collection environment, communicate clearly about it with their colleagues and external partners, and take informed actions to improve it.


We are looking for an enthousiastic and motivated junior front-end developer to help us craft digital solutions that delight our users. You are eager to learn, you pay attention to detail and performance implications. You love working closely with designers and other team members. You execute autonomously.


In this role you will actively design, build, test, document and ship new user-facing features in the CHARP Art Care online software platform. You'll also weigh in on our product roadmap, which we set collaboratively as a team.

To get yourself familiarized with our codebase, you will first fine-tune smaller parts of our user interface. Once you feel comfortable you will start working on implementing new features together with our senior front-end developers. We want you to help us build easy-to-maintain reusable code and libraries for future use, and optimise the application for speed and scalability.

You’ll be working primarily in React and Typescript with a GraphQL and Node.js backend. To qualify for the job, you need to have a solid understanding of HTML, CSS, JavaScript and the DOM. You know how to work with git. Any experience with React or Typescript is a bonus.

Sounds interesting?
