    Description

    We are seeking an innovative Applications Engineer to join a market leader in measurement systems. This is your chance to grow your career while you use your expert abilities to specialise in the renewable energy and infrastructure market groups in South Africa. Work closely with production teams on complex systems and services which contribute to sustainable power generation and accessibility solutions!

    The ideal candidate needs to have a degree in the field of engineering or computer sciences and experience in designing technical systems that include hardware and software architecture. You will need to know scientific principles underlying measurements and instrument operation and the process of writing and testing software programmes, have the ability to develop professional and commercial relationships with clients and production teams, translate concepts in the physical hardware and software required, and communicate complex information to a non-technical audience. You will get the chance to travel within South Africa and even globally, so a valid driver’s license is a must!

    As the new Applications Engineer, you will primarily oversee project management, weather station system design, offering pre-sales technical support and developing sales tools and marketing collateral, meetings with clients and customers to deliver technical presentations, and creating project documentation including designs, testing documents, and training and technical manuals. Responsibilities include performing Factory Acceptance Tests, implementing the CR Basic datalogger program for projects, creating system datalogger wiring diagrams and system drawing pack, collaborating with customers to produce a system design package, providing technical information to production teams, reviewing and writing tender responses, and documenting activities following company procedures using company systems.
