Would you like to join the
team behind the world’s brightest
microfocus X-ray tube? If you think the combination
of customer contact and deep technical challenges in x-ray imaging is
attractive, the job asApplication
Performance Specialist should be right for you!
(Stockholm, Sweden) is a high-tech company with a unique patented X-ray source
technology. We are already very successful in our niche but our goal is to
become the preferred high-end supplier to most X-ray applications all over the
world. As an Application Performance Specialist you will be one of the driving forces in our
company and your challenge will be to make sure we meet customer demands and
keep the team in right directions.
somewhat uncommon job title tries to accurately describe the role, which is to
focus on how X-ray sources from Excillum can increase the performance of
various X-ray applications. To master the job, you therefore must
understand/learn the applications good enough to know what parameters of the
X-ray tube will optimize the performance (hopefully beyond what even the
customer thought possible). To be clear, “understanding the application”
doesn’t mean just being able to perform and interpret results of the
application, but understanding in detail how it works. Basically being able to
design the application.Furthermore, you
must understand/learn how our X-ray sources function in detail and what they
can do when pushed to their limits. In that way, you can help our customers
(end users or system manufactures) get the most out of their Excillum sources
in their particular applications. However, you should also understand what
source improvements would further increase application performance and
communicate that information with Excillum R&D to make our X-ray sources
even better for our users.
A further important task is to
communicate how Excillum’s X-ray tubes boost various applications. This may be
verbally at conferences and trade-shows but also in writing on our website or
in application notes. As Application Performance Specialist you are a key
spokesperson for Excillum within your applications of expertise.
intention is that this Application Performance Specialist position will focus
on imaging applications, including regular absorption imaging and X-ray
microscopy, mainly CT, but also various phase contrast imaging techniques. You
will work closely with our existing Application Performance Specialist who will
focus more on analytical applications such as X-ray Diffraction, Small Angle
X-ray Scattering (SAXS) and XRF etc. However, if you rather happen to be an
expert in analytical X-ray we may consider reversing this situation since our
existing person is highly skilled in both fields. It is naturally beneficial if
you also are skilled in both imaging and analytical applications.
involves travelling to customer and conferences estimated up to around 25%.
What's in it for you?
Join us on our journey and we
can offer you stimulating and challenging work tasks in a creative and dynamic
company, where your work is of the essence and makes a difference. We have a
great team spirit and you will work with technology in the very forefront.
Simply, a great place to work!
We believe that you have
To be successful in this role we think you both need
to understand our sources profoundly as well as the customers’ applications.
You would be the second Application Performance Specialist at Excillum with a
focus towards X-ray imaging applications. You are naturally an outstanding
X-ray expert already.
If you are self-motivated with the ability to work under
minimal supervision in an environment that requires strong teamwork and
cross-functional interaction, you will fit right in! In this role, it is also
important to demonstrated interpersonal and communication skills, verbally and in
writing, towards external customers.

started 2007 and makes the world’s brightest microfocus X-ray tubes. The
MetalJet X-ray tubes are conventional microfocus tubes with the solid-metal
anode replaced by a liquid-metal jet. A metal-jet anode is continuously
regenerated and already in the molten state. Thereby, the classical power limit
of an X-ray source, when the anode is permanently damaged by the electron beam,
no longer applies. Our unique MetalJet microfocus x-ray source technology can
at current stage generate roughly 10 times the X-ray flux of a conventional solid
anode X-ray source from the same source area.
