About us

Who we are

We are tech entrepreneurs in rail.

We're dedicated to our work, striving for the best possible solution, and happy to cooperate and work as a team, in Brussels or in Europe.

Our HQ is in Brussels but we have a vivid remote culture with colleagues in many other European countries. Together we serve our customers all over Europe.

What we do

We are on a mission to unlock the performance of Rail Transport.

We believe that there is great potential in the railway system.

Railnova’s IoT and AI solutions allow organisations to refocus their resources on what matters the most: safety, train performance, customer service, and employee happiness at work.


We like to build it ourselves

We built our first Railster, a remote monitoring device, in a garage, 11 years ago, and kept the passion for finding our way to make things work. When we cannot find the right app, machine, or provider, we build it ourselves. We use the available knowledge and experience in different departments to collaborate and create solutions matching our specific needs.

Continuous Learning

We’re doing things no one has done before: digitizing and bringing the railway to the modern age. This means constantly learning by doing it. This challenging aspect is part of the reasons why many Railnovians started as students and grew with us over the years.

Sharing is caring

We believe in being a supportive team. The French word “bienveillance"(thoughtfulness, kindness, decency) sums up our aims. We love what we do and who we do it with. As a result, we enjoy taking the time to show and explain everything in detail to team members, new colleagues, and clients.

Hiring process

CV screening and review of written answers

At Railnova, written communication is at the base of every workflow. We believe that decisions should be taken in writing and not in meetings, allowing everyone to participate in the process, not just the ones that are present or the ones that speak the loudest. This will enable us to encourage working remotely, asynchronously, and having uninterrupted focus time whenever each one of us needs it. That is why written answers in our selection process are so important for us.


With at least 2 Railnovians, always the same for the interviews of a single job, usually the Hiring Manager and HR. We see the interview as a two-way evaluation; on one side, it’s our opportunity to tell more about our workplace to interested candidates. On the other hand, we evaluate candidates using structured interviews based on the specific needs described in the Job Description to compare candidates on a fixed set of themes.

Show us your skills

Practical exercise on a technical situation replicating job reality, always with 2 Railnovians: usually the Hiring Manager and a technical colleague. We believe that it is essential for candidates to meet more potential colleagues to get a feel of what it could be like working in this team.

Final chat with the CEO

We are a small company. We believe it’s important to meet Christian, our CEO, before joining us. We can tell you about our culture and the way we do things, but meeting with him will give you more insights into Railnova’s energy.
