What we offer
We do not need to hide our benefits either. This overview shows you what to expect:
A modern workstation equipment is standard at DESKO, so no team member has to work with a slow PC and outdated IT technology.
Flexible solutions for home office
Flexible working plays an important role in achieving a good work-life balance. That is why we provide each team member with a laptop. This allows them to work flexibly from home in consultation with their colleagues. By that, family and career can perfectly be arranged.
Business cell phone
To ensure that you can always be reached when you are on the road, a work cell phone is part of your work equipment.
Sitting for too long is detrimental to health, which is why all of our workstations are equipped with a height-adjustable desk.
As a FAE (Field Application Engineer) you are on the road a lot. Of course, we will provide you with a suitable vehicle for this purpose.
Parking on the company premises
Whether car, motorcycle, scooter, bicycle, e-bike or city scooter, we offer an appropriate parking space for each vehicle.
Which qualifications should I have for this position?
A Field Application Engineer (FAE) is a real allround talent, because this position not only requires a high level of technical understanding, but also very good communication skills. An FAE for DESKO travels all over the world to support customers in the technical integration of our solutions or to provide help and advice in case of problems.
This means that you act as an interface between sales and development. Therefore, it is especially important that you are at home in both worlds and that you can deal with its inhabitants equally well.
Is the job also something for career changers?
Absolutely. However, a successfully completed degree or technical training is already a huge advantage for the position as FAE. You should also have a great technical understanding, an interest in intercultural exchange, and a business-fluent command of English.
You should also be proficient in a programming language or at least know how to address an SDK.
Which foreign languages should I speak for this job?
The business fluent command of the English language (spoken and written) is essential, because you represent the company DESKO with the customers worldwide. You speak other languages as well? All the better, that is definitely an advantage for this position. If you also bring along a great intercultural interest and an open, cordial manner, there should be no communication barriers with international customers, partners or team members.
How often does a Field Application Engineer travel around the world?
This depends on the current situation and customer inquiries. There may be seasonal fluctuations , so it is not possible to make a definite statement about this. You can roughly say that you are on the road about 20-30% of your working time. In this job, it is also quite possible that trips are scheduled at short notice and last for a longer period of time. However, this is rather the exception, as a rule you are on the road for several days up to a week.
In any case, it is important that you have a valid passport so that you can get to the customer quickly if this is necessary at short notice.
