Wat ga je doen?

What will you be doing?
After an extensive training program about the company, technology, products and applications in which the instruments are being used, you will work with a diverse set of customers to support them with flow and pressure measurement and control solutions for their applications. Speed is important to Alicat. That counts for the instruments as well as for the customer support. You will have daily interactions with universities, research institutions, R&D-centers and (production) engineering departments active in a diverse set of fields and industries, such as aerospace, bioscience, chemical, food & beverage, hydrogen & coating. 

An impression of a day at work:

  • Check incoming e-mails from (potential) customers with questions, quote requests or orders to be entered into the system;
  • Ask clarifying questions by e-mail, phone or in person to dig deeper into a customer’s application to determine the best solution;
  • Connect with the engineering colleagues in Europe or the US to get information about more complex topics;
  • Support customers with troubleshooting in the European lab or visit the customer to solve the problems on site;
  • Support your distribution partners with questions, quoting and troubleshooting by e-mail, phone or by doing joint-customer visits;
  • Having a meeting with marketing to help developing better campaigns;
  • Doing a training session about a new product that will be launched;
  • Going home knowing that you have made multiple customers happy.
