The Microscope Sales Representative position is a highly skilled and highly technical sales position which relies heavily on consultative selling skills to meet customer requirements and individual/territorial sales targets. Success requires strong customer support, both product and application, for all BioScience and Materials Science products in the assigned territory.

  • Working knowledge of high-end microscopy, including imaging techniques beyond simple image capture and manipulation (e.g., automated time lapse with Z-stack, etc).
  • High-level knowledge of personal computers and strong presentation skills required.
  • Positive “can do” attitude coupled with a willingness to continuously acquire product and application knowledge independently.
  • Must be able to work independently as well as in a team sales environment.
  • Prior experience in technical sales and managing a field coverage area for technical sales or product support a big plus.
  • Willingness and ability to travel within assigned territory (some overnight travel possible).
