R&D Project Manager

It takes several days to measure and quantify bacteria whether you wish to know the quality of your drinking water, the number of bacteria in a fermentation process, or the bacterial load in the operating room of a hospital. Our team at SBT has invented an electrically based detection technology for measuring bacteria within a few minutes. We are looking for a person who wants to be a part of something truly game-changing, and through his or her drive revolutionize the way bacteria are monitored and measured today to accelerate research in society and microbiology safety aspects.

About SBT

SBT was established in 2014 as a spin-out from the Technical University of Denmark. Today, the company employs 12 people, has acquired two patents (recently filed for a third), has one product on the market and another product that is soon to be launched. Bacteria measurements are relevant in many different applications, but our current main market is found within the biotech industry, where we sell our first product, BactoBox. We are partly owned by the Ellab-Fonden, a Danish commercial foundation that supports important and impactful social, humanitarian, and research projects.

The position

Our products involve many different technically exciting fields: Hardware, software, firmware, mechanical engineering, microfluidics, advanced data analysis, and microbiology.
