We are looking for customer-focused field engineers to kick start their careers in a rewarding, high-performing, international company.

If you are 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.

With some 24,000 people in more than 120 countries, which we’re looking to expand, we are 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 field engineer, you will work with our customers, sales teams, contractors, and designers to drive the sales of specific products.

Our Field Engineers are involved in educating key influencers on construction projects about the proper use, advantages and value of Hilti products, to securing their specification in the designs. You will then communicate these product specs from design teams to sales teams, assisting account managers with their conversion into sales. It means visiting job sites to assess design problems - as well as opportunities - giving technical advice, solutions, and support, and adding value through the use of Hilti products.

It might also mean looking into new business prospects by running customer surveys for product development and working with sales teams to develop local strategies.

What do we offer?
We will give you everything you need to excel in your role, including ongoing training and lots of responsibility from the start. In return for your exceptional performance and consistent results, you will receive one-to-one career mentoring, as well as exciting opportunities to move around the business.

Why should you apply?
We have an excellent mix of people, which we believe makes for a more vibrant, more innovative, more productive team. If you have two or more years’ experience in engineering or construction, it will be a big advantage.

Job Requirements:

• A Bachelor’s degree required.  Structural or Civil Engineering strongly desired.
• EIT preferred but not required
• An agile approach to solving problems
• Strong communication skills
• Enthusiasm to learn and drive to succeed

Vehicle/ Driver’s License Requirements:

A company vehicle is provided for carrying tools/fasteners for product demonstration purposes. The employee must have valid US driver’s license and the ability to operate a motor vehicle and comply with HNA Fleet Safety Policy requirements. 

As part of your interview process, we will take you on a day-in-the-life ‘field ride’ to give you a feel for the job and the caliber of our people. We will also pay for your travel to the interview.

If we are impressed with your resume, we will invite you for an interview, introduce you to the team and pay for your travel to get there.
