Careers

How do scientific questions get answered? How do new things get built? They always require people with a love of science or engineering who use building blocks to discover and create. Alicat Scientific has been manufacturing and servicing high-quality mass flow and pressure devices since 1991, and we have grown every year for over 20 years. Each instrument is a custom-made building block that might be employed in support of space rockets, hydrogen fuel cells, medical oxygen delivery systems, environmental monitoring stations… or anywhere precision gas instruments can advance science and industry. 

At Alicat, speed is embedded throughout our organization, including the instrument’s speed of response, our speed of product development, and our speed of customer support. We don’t believe in hierarchy or power by title, prefer principles over rules, and believe if you make an impact, people will notice. Our informal environment celebrates differences, whether those differences are as big as our diverse backgrounds or as small as our opinions of movies.

What will you be doing?

After an extensive training program about our company, technology, products, and applications in which our instruments are being used, you will work with a diverse set of customers to support them with flow and pressure measurement and control solutions for their applications.

Speed is important to us. That counts for our instruments as well as for our customer support. You will have daily interactions with universities, research institutions, R&D-centers, and (production) engineering departments active in a diverse set of fields and industries, such as aerospace, bioscience, chemical, food & beverage, hydrogen & coating.

An impression of a day at work:

  • Check incoming e-mails from (potential) customers with questions, quote requests or orders to be entered into our system;
  • Ask clarifying questions by e-mail, phone, or in person to dig deeper into a customer’s application to determine the best solution;
  • Connect with engineering colleagues in Europe or the US to get information about more complex topics;
  • Support customers with troubleshooting in the European lab or visit the customer to solve the problems on-site;
  • Support your distribution partners with questions, quoting, and troubleshooting by e-mail, phone, or by doing joint-customer visits;
  • Having a meeting with marketing to help develop better campaigns;
  • Doing a training session about a new product that will be launched;

The Application Engineers are key in our ambition to be fast in supporting our customers, above market standards. As an Application Engineer, you work with customers to quickly understand their specific technical requirements, and ensure that our proposed solution meets their needs and is supplied fast.

However, applications engineering is more than science. It’s helping exceptional scientists, researchers, and engineers all over Europe to progress with great technical customer support. An Application Engineer needs a curious mind with a passion for details and accelerating scientific and technological development.

What we are looking for is:

  • A bachelor’s or master’s degree in science, engineering, or mathematics;
  • Fluency in German, both writing and verbal are required (native German is preferred);
  • Strong written and verbal English skills are required (at least C1-level);
