The Field Service Engineer will act as the primary point of contact for customers on technical and service issues. A crucial player in our commitment to total customer satisfaction, the Field Service Engineer must demonstrate solid judgment and possess outstanding interpersonal skills. This position is field-based in the San Francisco Bay Area, but travel throughout the western U.S. is to be expected.

    • Employ our customer management tool to track work orders, manage parts inventory, and complete other administrative job tasks.
    • Travel approximately 50% of the time on both a scheduled and unscheduled basis.
    • Work independently, but also function as a critical and relied-upon member of our Field Services team. This may require travel outside of your assigned coverage territory and contribution to high value service projects.


    You Have:

    • A BS in Science or Engineering discipline with five years of industry experience in the service or support of life science instruments.
    • Substantial working knowledge of optical, electrical and mechanical sub-systems.
