My client has been manufacturing SMT equipment for over 75 years! Traditionally their inspection tools haven't been a main focus area for the European market, but they're now launching some really innovative 3D AOI/ SPI tools which are set to change that. As such, they need to appoint a Product Manager who can dedicate themselves to this line and operate as a conduit between the customer, sales, R&D and marketing. This person will be tasked with finding new application areas/ functionalities for AOI/ SPI and ensure the R&D team are constantly developing the most 'competitive' machines.

This person will need a technical background in optical inspection equipment, ideally in the surface mount market (eg. for solder inspection). They will also need:

- A technical degree in electronics/ mechanical engineering or similar
- Previous experience in the SMT machine market (ideally in engineering, research, product marketing/ management, business development, technical sales)
- The ability to work from an office in Nuremberg
- The willingness to travel 10-20% of the time
- Business fluent German and English

This role will keep you technically challenged and also test your commercial aptitude. You'll be the company's 'eyes and ears' on the ground, and their advisor on how to keep their optical inspection lines 'cutting edge' and market/application specific.

Apply now if you're an optical inspection/ AOI/ SPI expert who wants a customer facing position with a well-established SMT equipment manufacturer.
