The Chromacity Team

The team at Chromacity comprises engineers, scientists and marketeers with extensive experience in ultrashort-pulse lasers and nonlinear optics.  We believe the way we work together is just as important as the products we produce.  Working as part of a small committed team, there is ample opportunity to undertake a variety of roles within a dynamic and constantly changing organisation.  With on-the-job and formal training an integral part of our continuous development plan for every individual, we strive to create a sustainable and growing high technology company here in Scotland, founded on bringing together individuals who want to make a difference.


Located on the Heriot Watt Research Campus near Edinburgh, with green fields and woods nearby, it is a great place to work.  We are easily accessed by car, bus or bike.  And our special relationship with Heriot Watt University gives us access to subsidised restaurant and cafe facilities.


Chromacity offers flexible hours with hybrid working options, flexible paid holiday entitlement, private healthcare, employee stock options and a generous contributory pension scheme.
