JOB SPECIFICATION - Sales Engineer / Technical Sales

This Sales Engineer / Technical Sales position is an expansion role, working from a Milton Keynes site and visiting customers across the UK & Ireland. You will be meeting with clients to introduce / demo specific sensor / data logging solutions to clients from several vertical markets (including Aerospace / Automotive / Formula One), with a wide range of applications. This role will focus on the sale of a solution / introducing a concept of how these equipment / machinery / engineering projects could add to a client’s offerings and data gathering services. You will be selling to technical / engineering personnel who act as gatekeepers – but will make most of the buying decisions. Get the engineers on board and the sales will come.

You will dual visit, alongside representatives from the manufacturing principals and invite customers to those manufacturers’ showrooms to demonstrate and present. Once up to speed, you may be out the office visiting clients 2-3 days per week.
