I’m representing a manufacturer of custom engineered Panelboards, Switchboards and Switchgear in the Chicagoland area.

We are seeking a proven technical person who could design and configure switchboards. This is ideal for a person who wants to expand his/her skills and move away from doing drawings 100% of the time into a more problem solver role.

This is an inbound role, no need to be a hunter, mostly supporting inquiries coming to the company and acting as advisor/expert in front of the customer when configuring custom solutions.

Support the sales growth of custom and quick ship electrical power distribution products through the vetting of quotation opportunities, costing of projects and preparation of customer proposals.

Products are primarily engineered to order, mainly Low Voltage (600V and below) but, occasionally, also Medium Voltage (MV – >600V to 38kV).

Specifically, the role will be responsible for:

1) Supporting sales growth through the prompt evaluation of quotation opportunities and determining solutions that resolve specific customer problems using technical skills and electrical knowledge.

2) Evaluation of risk, profitability, and cash flow potential, defining scope of supply and coordinating project schedule in conjunction with the manufacturing team.

3) Quotation preparation, project costing and assisting in project kick-off when orders are received.

4) Interface with Engineering to ensure proper scope definition and costing.  Customer centric/service-oriented approach in an engineered to order business to business sales environment essential to success.

Additional Responsibilities:

Project Takeoffs

Project Costing
