Sales engineers often bridge the gap between the sales team and a customer’s team of internal engineers to ensure that their product or service is the right solution. It takes a skilled recruitment and executive search agency to find candidates with the right combination of sales, customer service and technical knowledge needed. 180 Engineering is the recruitment firm with the know-how and experience to find these rare individuals.
Our clients want sales engineers who possess experience building strong customer relationships, who know how to work with engineering requirements, and can come up with the right technical application. Every candidate we work with must pass a thorough technical and soft skills interview with a recruiter from our team. We are a search firm known for their quality of candidates which we attribute to our screening process.
