The EMEA sales territory boasts potential for growth, and we are now looking for a Field Sales Engineer for this important region who can be mobile within the sales area to maintain and develop the business with enthusiasm.
As a Field Sales Engineer, you are responsible for identifying and fostering new customers and applications for our products, as well as for developing existing customers. You will identify market and customer requirements through market presence, customer interaction and a keen ear for our customers’ needs.
We are looking for someone with ~5–10 years of sales experience within an engineering industry or as an application engineer within product management, and, preferably, with an engineering degree and/or master’s degree in business or marketing. You have good knowledge of steel and experience in value-based sales.

You can engage people and have them commit to projects and plans. Frequent travel (~65%) within the region is part of your job.
