What drives us


What we believe in

 We operate based on our values. These values are reflected in products, strategic decisions and in each employee's daily work.


Long-term thinking

We are always thinking long-term, whether it’s about products, clients or colleagues. We invest in every employee’s personal development, support their career goals and provide opportunities to keep growing professionally.



We believe in the agile principles and we have been working with this mindset for over 20 years. We create an environment where it’s safe to fail, so our colleagues can bravely test new ideas. We listen actively and aim to understand each other’s viewpoints - even if we are not on the same page.


Customer Excellence

We aim for excellence in everything we do, built on collaboration, integrity and long-term thinking. We focus on providing this excellence to our clients, so they get tools that always keep them moving toward the next scientific discovery.


Integrity is key. We are committed to moving chemistry forward and we each take ownership of our work. We believe in transparency, continuously giving and receiving feedback and helping each other and the company get better in the process.

Everyday life


Passionate learning

We love to stay up-to-date with the latest technology and practices. We provide each employee with an annual training budget for personal development, and our teams allocate time slots for learning. On top of this, we organize coding challenges, self-led learning solutions by our in-house trainer and external training programs.

Family-friendly environment

School finished early or there is a school holiday? No problem! Let your kids do their homework at the office, and we also have a play corner in the lobby for the little ones. We hold regular family days, an annual christmas party and other events where you may bring along your loved ones.

Active social life

It is important to maintain a healthy balance between work and fun. Internal events bring you closer to other colleagues. We go skating, watch movies, play board games together and we have a legendary Chemaxon breakfast every month. (Yes, having a beer is a valid social activity as well).

Hybrid or remote work

We allow employees to choose whether they prefer to work in a hybrid or a remote setting. The IT department provides each colleague with a laptop of their choice and complementary tools with ongoing support. Beyond this, hybrid workers get to enjoy the bright, green and cozy HQ with ergonomic workstations and unlimited access to coffee and snacks.

Keen on sports

Do you like a good run? Relaxing during a yoga session on a Friday afternoon in the office? So do we and many colleagues do sports together. We have a monthly cycling competition and you regularly stumble into an improvised table tennis or foosball championship around lunch time.


Continuous feedback

We value everybody’s expertise and opinion, it’s a part of the culture and our daily lives to give and receive feedback. New hires have regular team feedback sessions over the first months, every employee has regular one-on-one meetings with their manager, we have feedback sessions every six months and more in between.
