Sales Engineer

It's not an accident that musicians become musicians, and engineers become engineers: it's what they're born to do. And when they tune into their purpose, and truly align that purpose with their vision…well, then they’re capable of doing great things. 

At Advanced Test and Automation, we believe that we’re doing great things too. Our purpose and our vision, is to make transportation safer the world over, by turning revolutionary ideas into reliable products. 

Modern transportation forms the bonds of relationships, connects people, and keeps the world turning. It is critical to ensure that the components that make this possible, function at the highest and safest level. 

ATA is dedicated to making this vision a reality. If you are looking to join a company with a true sense of purpose, where you can use your significant technical expertise and outgoing personality to create meaningful connections with clients, then we want to hear from you. 

Sales Engineer 

Advanced Test and Automation has over a decade of expertise in developing customized test solutions for critical automotive components such as pumps, heat exchangers, and electrified powertrain components. As our newest sales engineer, you will combine your deep technical engineering background with your excellent sales skills to support our business development efforts, and create great content for our customers. 

Your main goal in this role is to take the story and vision of ATA, and position it in a way that creates meaningful links between our product and the needs of our customers. Your content will demonstrate to the client that our testing solutions are a game-changer for their business. You create the “wow” moment where customers come to understand how we can completely change their process. 

To be successful in this role, you have excellent writing and content creation skills. You are able to take complex technical information, distill it, and present it in a compelling manner for all audiences. Your technical expertise means that you have credibility, and the ability to speak authoritatively with other engineers, while your social and communication skills let you build great relationships with non-engineers. 

You’re also a great listener. You truly hear and understand customer needs and pain points, and are able to provide excellent solutions to meet those needs. 

On a practical level, you will: 

  • Support our business development and account management efforts through your ongoing sales work
  • Create compelling and informative sales and marketing materials that communicate our vision, mission, and product capabilities
