Field Engineer - Structural

Orange County/Inland Empire
Reference No: 7767

What's the role?

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

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 some 24,000 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 field engineer, you will be working with our customers, sales teams, contractors, and designers to drive the sales of specific products. This involves educating critical 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.

Our tools are chosen for some of the world’s most exciting engineering projects, like London’s Crossrail and Japan’s bullet train, as well as everyday buildings that make people’s lives better and safer.

What do we offer?

We’ll 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’ll 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’ll be a big advantage.

What you need is:

  • A Bachelor’s degree in Structural or Civil Engineering preferred
  • PE preferred
  • Experience in engineering practice, or equivalent time calling on engineering firms in an engineering sales capacity.
  • Must be able to travel 25-30% of the time.

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.
