    Sales Engineer – Detroit area

    Do you have a good overall understanding of embedded systems and software development, yet feel you have more to give than sitting in a cubicle with a C++/Java compiler? Are you poised to engage people instead with your cunning social skills and stellar communication? If you are ready to apply your software skills to business development and sales within the automotive world, we have the perfect opportunity for you…

    Rightware, a software and design company headquartered in Helsinki Finland with offices in Troy Michigan, Silicon Valley, Munich, Tokyo, Seoul, Shanghai, and soon Italy and France, is expanding our Detroit operation! Our flagship product is Kanzi, the world’s leading User Interface design and engineering solution for the automotive industry. With the combination of a design studio and a powerful graphics engine, Kanzi enables the rapid deployment of user interfaces and Human-Machine Interfaces with high-fidelity realtime 2D and 3D graphics. Kanzi is endorsed and used globally/exclusively by top industry players that include companies like Audi, Visteon and over a dozen other OEMs and Tier 1s many of them located in Detroit Rock City! (Oh and Kanzi has been in production in nearly 1 million cars already, worldwide.. Check out the Audi Virtual Cockpit now in the R8, TT, A4, and Q7….)

    So, to complement our already strong sales presence in Detroit and elsewhere in the US, we are looking for someone to join our ranks to become our sales engineering expert! This work has to do with you getting to know our Kanzi Studio (a pretty amazing UI design tool), so you can conduct a few presentations per week with customers, and talk the talk when it comes to our technology (all from a sales perspective, naturally). We’ll give you the chance to learn Kanzi of course, including a possible trip to Finland to get to know everyone there, giving you the chance to play around with Kanzi until you are comfortable enough explaining its’ benefits (with hands on demonstrations of course) to our clientele.

    You will earn a competitive base salary plus results-based commission package, company car, all the bells and whistles and benefits that come with a solid software company. We already have relationships with the Big 3 in Detroit so this is not a cold calling job…….however you should be ready to do whatever it takes to deliver results by farming or hunting. Here is what we need in you:

    Profile:

    -Education or background in embedded and/or SW Engineering

    -You are interested in technology and have a good general understanding of software and embedded development

    -You are extroverted, have a dynamic personality, patient, good at building relationships with technical people

    -You are confident and fearless when it comes to talking with key decision makers

    -You understand the value of real customer service, willing to do what it takes to close deals

    Willingness to travel locally and to California occasionally, possibly a couple times to Europe

    You may also have experience with some of the following:

    -Graphics UI development and UI frameworks

    -Design Content Creation tools such as Photoshop, 3DSMax, Maya, Softimage
