We’re looking for a customer-focused Sales Engineer to kick start their career in a high-performing team. In this role you’ll be working with our customers, engineering teams, contractors and designers to drive the sales of Hilti’s engineering products and services. This is no ordinary sales job – ours is a uniquely high performing and supportive working culture.
Who is Hilti?
If you’re new to the industry, you might not have heard of us. We provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the global construction sector. We have a proud heritage, built over 75 years, and a worldwide reputation for pioneering products and exceptional service.
With 30,000 people in more than 120 countries, which we’re looking to expand, we’re a great place for you to show us your worth, step up to new challenges and grow your career.
What does the role involve?
As a Sales Engineer, you’ll be visiting our customers, wherever they’re busy working, to find out how we can help them. You will be visiting job sites to provide solutions, and identify opportunities – giving technical advice, solutions and support, and adding value through the use of Hilti products.
Ours is a model of professional, consultative selling and it’s a really hands-on job. It means rolling up your sleeves to demonstrate some of the most pioneering products in the industry, while selling our state-of-the-art software along with all the services and aftercare that come with the Hilti name. Far from traditional cold calling, it’s about building relationships with warm and responsive customers and helping them find the most innovative and cost-efficient solutions for their needs.
We’re proud to rank in Great Places to Work as one of the world’s best multinational workplaces.
What do we offer?
We’ll give you everything you need to excel in your role, including your own van full of tools and one-to-one coaching; you’ll manage your own book of business while being part of a friendly team. We’ll give you lots of responsibility, including your own portfolio of customers – these might be trade experts, project managers, or company leaders.
From there, we’ll trust you to do whatever it takes to deliver outstanding results. Day to day you’ll report to your regional sales manager, who will also be there to help you manage your career. Go the extra mile and we’ll reward you with unrivaled training, development, and career opportunities as soon as you’re ready for the next challenge.
