Our UK-based client is expanding into Canada with their award-winning technology. They offer producers an aftermarket 'add-on' that will boost the effect or replace the use of adjuvants; the product is customized to the end-users needs and equipment. This is where you come in! They need YOU to do the installation, training, and be the go-to person for all technical queries plus also be the one that is the face of the employer. You will establish the relationship with the end-user - collecting user data to develop long-term marketing data; showing specific benefits of saving input costs while spraying in the wind. You will also meet with government agencies, educational institutes, and regulatory bodies to conduct system assessments, product trials, and gain/seek approval by regulators.

While they are new to the broad-acre and horticultural industry in Canada - they already have clients needing your expertise.

Liaise with and oversee field studies
Manage all technical aspects of customer accounts; technical sales support
Aftermarket support, repair, and maintenance
Provide input for quality improvement and future R&D; data-gathering

5+ years of work experience in the agricultural sector
Technical report writing
Communication skills
An astute team player
Proficiency in standard computer applications
Organizational skills and ability to multi-task
Experience in planning and goal-setting
Mechanical aptitude; plumbing skills an asset
Familiarity with spraying equipment highly beneficial
Willingness to do extensive travelling within Canada and, later on, the USA

Our client offers a base salary, annual bonus plan, medical benefits and paid expenses. Ideally, central Saskatchewan is the geographic focus but consideration will be made for those located within the central prairies
