What's the role?
We are looking for customer-oriented Design Engineer (Field Engineer) in Town to kick start a career in a high-performing and rewarding multinational company. Our people come from different walks of life with a shared dedication to high performance, consistent results and exceptional customer service.
Who is Hilti?
If you’re new to the industry, you might not have heard of us. We provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the global construction sector. We have a proud heritage, built over 75 years, and a worldwide reputation for pioneering products and exceptional service.
With some 29,000 people in more than 120 countries, which we’re looking to expand, we’re a great place for you to show us your worth, step up to new challenges and grow your career.
What does the role involve?
As a Design Engineer (Field Engineer), you’ll be working with our customers, sales team, contractors and designers to drive the sales of specific products.
This involves educating key influencers on construction projects about the proper use, advantages and value of Hilti products, with a view to securing their specification in the designs. You’ll then communicate these product specs from design teams to sales teams, assigning account managers with their conversion into sales. It means visiting job sites to assess design problems - as well as opportunities - giving technical advice, solutions and support, and adding value through the use of Hilti products.
It might also mean looking into new business prospects by running customer surveys for product development, and working with sales teams to develop local strategies. Day to day, you’ll report to your Engineering Manager.

We’ll give you everything you need to excel in your role, including ongoing training and lots of responsibilities from the start. In return for your exceptional performance and consistent results, you’ll receive one-to-one career mentoring, as well as exciting opportunities to move around the business, for instance marketing and sales.
Why should you apply?
We have an excellent mix of people, which we believe makes for a more vibrant, more innovative, more productive team. So, if you’ve never worked in construction, that’s fine with us. Success at Hilti is down to teamwork and ability, regardless of your background.
What you need is:
- Degree in Civil / Structural or related discipline in engineering
- 3 years of experience in construction related industries
- High proficiency in English
- Team player with strong customer orientation
- Ability to drive and influence different teams to work together to achieve the goal
