YOUR CHALLENGEThe Field Application Engineer is the technical conscience of our sales force. You make sure the offered solutions are technically correct and you advise on the used applications at customers. Without you, the market will not move forward into Smart Industry!
YOUR RESPONSIBILITYIn your role as Field Application Engineer, you are there to make sure everyone sells and uses our products in the right way. You provide technical support in pre- and post-sales. Both your sales-colleagues and customers come to you directly to find the best possible solutions. Next to your “core-business”, you are there for all kinds of technical support. You work with demo kits for trade shows, you attend customer meetings and you cooperate with colleagues from product management.
All this combined makes you the technical center of the sales team. If you don’t know the solution, then who will? Luckily there are many (Field) Application Engineers throughout Europe, with whom you cooperate to obtain the best possible solutions! This position may involve traveling in and outside of France.
WHO ARE YOUThere is not much about Industrial Automation and Computer Technology you do not know. We can sum up a list of demands, but in the end, it’s most important that you understand where IT and OT come together. The knowledge you have in industrial automation is about PLC, Motion, Remote I/O, Scada/HMI. Combine that with experience in protocols such as TCP/IP, Modbus, Profibus, Profinet etc.
This job is not all about technical knowledge, in the end you are in a very commercial position. This asks for communicative skills, a customer-focused attitude and supportive personality. You are fluent in English and have good presentation skills.
