We’re looking for a creative problem-solver and tech-lover who’s excited to take on a Field Applications Specialist role in the San Francisco Bay Area. Do you consider yourself a scientist who loves to share your knowledge? Do you love the challenge of figuring out how you can best help someone accelerate their research? Do you enjoy giving advice to people?

 

If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to all of these questions, you’d really enjoy working on the Field Applications Team at NanoTemper Technologies. 

 

At NanoTemper, we have a big mission — to enable researchers to do the best science of their lives.

As part of the team, you will play an important role in educating scientists and driving interest for our products in the San Francisco Bay Area. You’ll be partnered with a Sales Representative, and as a team, you’ll coordinate efforts in managing prospects and customers. You’ll also get a chance to inspire your teammates by sharing your knowledge and expertise, and be inspired by your colleague’s success stories. 

 

Your responsibilities include

  • Understanding customer needs and giving personalized product/scientific presentations to elicit interest in NanoTemper’s products
  • Leading product demonstrations to show prospects the power and utility of NanoTemper’s products for their research

  • Representing NanoTemper at conference exhibits and sales events
  • Developing solid customer relationships 
  • Leading and supporting process improvement initiatives
  • Occasionally lift heavy items for demo purposes
  • Up to 30% of overnight travel for customer visits, conferences and team sales meetings

 

 

We’re looking for someone who

  • Just graduated from graduate school and is looking for a career change or a current user of NanoTemper products
  • Is well-organized and can juggle multiple projects with ease
  • Has an effective written and verbal communication style 
  • Loves working on a team but is also able to work independently
