MindCapture offers a dynamic, rewarding, personal development and flexible work environment. We are result-driven, we believe in long-term relationships that thrive on quality of contacts and empathy.

We reward you with market standard hourly fees, but more importantly, we look for solutions to really let you participate in the new company to be set up, hence making your competences scaleable in the future.

Maybe you are tired to earn your money only through timesheets. Time to bring your knowledge to a company or a project that brings value straight from your hands and hence brings a multiple on your efforts? Sure, an hourly rate is also part of the package. Let’s discuss the options.


MindCapture is a talent matching and consultancy company in life sciences, providing advanced solutions to life science talent requests.

The CEO of MindCapture has built 4 companies with success. By embarking on this assignment, you can be part of a new company with great leverage.

With a young and dynamic team, MindCapture is building a “SmartlyMatched” community and platform (PaaS). The team developed a smart matching process based on a solid understanding of the job and the talents.

We aim to address with this platform the scarcity of good talents, including new salary models, focusing on niche competences, all key in matching talents in life sciences in a brand-new way. In order to further develop our MVP, we need the right brains, hands and passion of a lead software architect.

Our team members have a solid scientific background, combined with years of experience from R&D to quality, med-tech development and (lab)IT management.

With our PaaS MVP, we embrace complexity, specialization (science and technology), flexibility and salary inventiveness, all crucial factors in order to match life sciences talents to the right environment.

We inspire talents as well as companies to expand their comfort zones and step into promising new ventures.

If you join our journey, you will be learning all about candidates, our team, our partners, investors and clients, our storytelling, our strategic tools and workflows. Yes, we have a thing for strategy and focus.


It is all about the creation of the first “Life Sciences Talent Hunting System”, as a clear distinction from ordinary “Applicant Tracking Systems ». It is an AWS cloud-based PaaS solution, working with a promising tech stack.

We are looking for an entrepreneurial spirit, who does not mind figuring things out along the way. You’re creative yet you have a laser-sharp focus and are keen on standardisation. You’ll help build a platform that will have an impact on several organisations and companies. In the end, you will inspire recruitment teams on how to digitalise their daily work.

Let’s disrupt together, through the digital era and take recruitment in Life-Sciences to the next level.
