KP Technology

KP Technology was founded with the aim of bringing to the market new surface research tools. These tools would firstly allow specialists to investigate surface phenomena, secondly provide equipment pathways for non-specialists, and finally educate scientists, engineers and technologists in the capabilities of these emerging technologies.

Since inception in 2000, KP Technology has experienced rapid growth and now services over 250 companies and research institutes worldwide in their materials research and characterisation requirements. Our team consists of electronic and software engineers, materials research associates, training, sales and administrative staff.

KP Technology also performs a significant amount of material research and training consultancy, mostly based upon the work function or surface potential evaluation of client samples. The company's strong research and development division and the fact that over 500 systems have been shipped to 40 countries worldwide, has placed KP Technology as the leading supplier of Kelvin probes in the world.

KP Technology is currently recruiting gifted software developers, graduate physicists and electronic engineers.

If you reside in the UK / Europe and have graduated in the last 2 to 3 years please contact us if you are interested in joining our team.
