We are a full-service team of skilled engineers, chemists, technologists and support staff (and big fans of Sustainability, Coffee, Stroopwafels, de Efteling and Innovative Process Technologies; but not necessarily in that order) We are breaking free from the engineers’ stereotype. That’s right, we do things that others only dream of!

We serve clients in Chemicals, Food and Life sciences who produce materials, food and pharmaceuticals for people all over the world or our clients enable companies to do so. All of them promote sustainable development, innovation, growth and prosperity. We work mostly on projects in engineering, R&D and manufacturing. As Chemploy is an organization that gets even more fun with like-minded talent, we are hiring a:
