General Description of Role:
Abriox Inc is expanding its sales team and this is a chance to join a specialist technology-based organisation with a strong technical reputation in the oil and gas pipeline sector. We have already secured major clients, who are buying our products because they are high quality, efficient and robust. We are now looking for a talented and enthusiastic Field Sales Technician with communication skills and integrity - to grow our business in key areas.
Following the recent launch of our OSPREY range of gas pressure monitors in the US, this role offers the chance to specialise in these new products, while also supporting sales of our well established MERLIN cathodic protection monitoring products.
Reporting to the VP Sales in Cincinnati, you will manage and provide technical support to our existing customer base - and develop new business. Our customers are oil and gas pipeline operators and associated service companies. For this role, you will be particularly involved with gas distribution companies, of which there are more than 1,000 across the US ranging from small, local operators to huge regional companies with tens of thousands of miles of gas pipeline. These represent an exciting new customer base for Abriox – so you need to be able to identify the appropriate technical contacts, present and demonstrate the products (including assisting with on-site installation) and, following a successful field trial, close the sale.
In return for your success, we offer:
- An exciting and enthusiastic company, growing fast
- Excellent prospects by getting in at an early stage in our development
- Competitive remuneration (salary + commission)
- Full product training, with the opportunity to visit our UK company
- Flexibility to work from home
- Team-oriented environment with a clear vision for success.
This role will suit an established Sales Engineer with a track record in the oil and gas sector. It may also be suitable for a Technician or Service Engineer familiar with gas pressure management to make the transition into a technical sales role. You will spend much of your time travelling so proximity to a suitable aviation hub is essential.
- Full technical familiarity with our product range – we will provide training but you must already have sold (or have technical competence in) products comprising electronics, communications and software, preferably within the oil and gas sector.
- A structured, disciplined approach to account management, including initial sales planning, “cold-calling”, honest and realistic lead classification, creating and driving opportunities and regular, timely reporting.
- Excellent presentation skills at executive level with small or large audiences in order to explain the features and benefits of our products in formal meetings, as well as over the phone, and to provide on-site and classroom-based training.
- Technical competence to carry out field installations and provide technical support to customers in your region.
- Market research skills including competitor analysis, input to new product development and providing feedback on trends in the oil and gas sector.
- Confident and multi-level communication skills (oral and written).
- Familiarity with CRM and databases.
- Ability to travel widely in the US and occasionally beyond, including periodically outside the US.
Experience within the natural gas distribution sector is a big advantage.
You will be professional, self-managing, well-organised and have a good sense of humor. You will play a full part in sales meetings and adhere to the policies and procedures of the company.
