After several years of discussions with the world’s largest industrial sites, two clear issues were identified.

  1. Production machines waste a lot of energy due to an inadequately machine selection and inefficient points of operations.
  2. Those machines fail unexpectedly which causes unplanned downtimes, a real nightmares for those production plants.

That’s why we decided to create a cutting-edge technology solution from scratch to address these two issues.

Convinced that the Insens team is the central element of the service we offer, we are looking for someone who is ready to take on future technical and human challenges as well as adhere to the Insens values:

  • Confidence in colleagues and in one’s own abilities
  • Transparency
  • The surpassing of oneself
