Currently Hiring for open position: Technical Marketing Director

This is a Full-Time Position

The Technical Marketing Director position at PI North America is not your typical 'marketing director' position. First, it is a true blend of technical aptitude and marketing chops, with an emphasis on the former. In other words, we're seeking an engineer who can communicate. Second, PI North America's marketing efforts eventually help our members sell their products, not products of our own. Therefore, we target at a higher level than the typical sales funnel. Third, because of the technical nature of our offerings, many of our strategies focus on educating and assisting other engineers in our market. Providing training and driving competency are key metrics for our success.

Both a STEM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Mathematics) background and experience with industrial automation are required from job seekers. Knowledge of PROFIBUS/PROFINET or field networks is desired. We believe in hiring smart people with impeccable communication skills -and then rewarding them for it.
