Meet (part of) the Team

Ice cream eating S[&]T'ers in the parking lot on a sunny day back in 2019

S[&]T Corp - a colourful bunch

S[&]T grew from a handful of optimists into a professional organization with offices in 3 countries (the Netherlands, Norway and Italy), of more than 125 dedicated (scientific) coders, engineers, developers, organizers, and other enthusiastic ice-cream eaters.

Under the umbrella of the "corporation", our two major parts are the S[&]T Innovation centre and the S[&]T Experts Pool (we explain this further at S[&]T Corporation Explained). 
The people from these two happily mix and match daily, as they are all scientifically inclined, and see that we all want to make life on Earth better with the help of our data solutions. See here below some of our colleagues highlighted from both sides and from the "TAC-team", who would be happy to hear from you!

The next STEP in your career

As you can see, we do our best to keep our co-workers happy. We know that relaxed people work better, have more ideas and generally are more easy-going (for real!)

A plethora of programs are in place to keep you fit mentally, socially and physically, while none of it is compulsory. You can choose, mix and match what is working for you specifically. That being said, we are a social bunch, we do like ice cream on the hot summer days, we thrive on healthy competition, and are excited by discovering and learning new things.

No matter if you are working on-site, you are always invited to our socials and more than welcomed in our talent development programs!
