Climate change is putting vegetation under pressure. More than ever, better resource management and accurate forecasts are key priorities for agriculture and forestry. Through hyperspectral satellite imagery, we provide early alerts for diseases, irrigation issues, and land cover changes, as well as a close follow-up of the plants’ life-cycle.
12% of the world population is undernourished
60% more food will be needed to feed the globe
75% of global deforestation is due to agriculture
10 million km2 of forest could be cleared for farming
Close to 30% of GHG emissions are linked to food systems
Climate change will cause a yield decrease of over 10%
Optimized resource management and accurate yield forecasts are key priorities. Data plays an essential role in the decision-making process from day-to-day management to macro-scale policy development.

We are a multi-disciplinary and cross-functional team. One group designs a constellation of small satellites. A second group creates new ways to process, store and access large arrays of complex data. The third group develops applications based on deep learning algorithms.
We need to complement our team with top-notch profiles. In addition to the job opportunities listed on this page, we always appreciate spontaneous applications as well as requests for internships and master theses.
We offer enormous amounts of autonomy to everyone working at ScanWorld. This requires an aptitude to auto-manage oneself, a result-oriented mindset, and a certain curiosity about the world.
Our decision-making process has to be fast. We expect our colleagues to be both analytical thinkers and excellent communicators. We promote a feedback based culture.
Our headquarters are in Belgium, Liège, and we do also have a team working from Brussels. Both sites are in forest areas - a good reminder of our mission. We are deeply engaged and passionate about what we do, yet we value work-fun balance and do not miss a chance to share entertaining and unusual moments together!
