Spacepal / SewerMapper: Commercial / Business Developer

Sales - Antwerpen | More than two weeks ago



Thanks to the SewerMapper, there is no need for a worker to go down the manhole anymore. 

Don’t like a lot of text? Check out what we’re about here!
Worldwide, public sewers are in bad shape because of age and need to be inventoried and repaired. Methods to do this are still very analog and include manual labour in confined spaces. That’s why SpacePal is developing the most efficient and high-tech tools for the inspection and renovation companies to do what they do, better and faster. The SewerMapper is a device that lowers automatically into sewer manholes, and locates, orientates, measures and inspects the manhole by the push of a button; no more workers going ‘down the drain’: only open the cover! SpacePal has gone through different prototypes, has first partners/distributor interests in the EU market, raised seed capital and kicked off with international pilot projects.

What we offer / Benefits

  • Enjoy autonomy and control to build a technology company that incorporates your values & interests. A wide variety of responsibilities to be part of it and make an important impact!
  • Work with a dynamic and ambitious team, and also meet and engage with all the energetic people and other start-ups in the building.
  • Working remotely when necessary/flexible hours! 
  • You are joining a seed-funded start-up before scaling. A stake in the game (equity with friendly vesting) is potentially part of that.
  • SpacePal’s main office is in Wijnegem, Antwerp, where there are 3 meeting rooms, a fabrication lab, and other vibrant companies. Often, work is done from Ghent. For best collaboration, at least 3 days a week should be spent at the same location, based on needs and preference.
