Enthusiasm for our products that require explanation as well as a technical education, e.g. as an engineer, physicist or state-certified technician, are the best qualifications for success in the sales department at Viscom. In addition to technical expertise, a sales engineer or key account manager should also have an independent, solution-oriented approach to work, the ability to work in a team, and a professional manner. Strong customer relationships are extremely important to us, so we attach great importance to a collaborative and analytical approach to working with customers and their requirements.
In addition to staff members in the field, we need strong back office support from our sales assistants. Commercial training with an excellent understanding of technical issues or technical training with additional commercial qualifications provide the ideal background for joining our company.
In addition to a wide range of technically oriented activities, a successful company also requires a strong administrative and commercial structure with challenging positions in accounting/controlling, human resources, marketing, purchasing and investor relations. You can join us via a commercial apprenticeship or a corresponding program of study.
As an applications specialist you will create and optimize inspection programs and inspection patterns using our software.

In addition to technical expertise, a proactive, structured and systematic approach to your work is essential. You will work both independently and as part of a team. A highly developed awareness of quality is an absolute must for the production of our machines.
Before our systems are delivered, the Commissioning Department prepares them for use by the customer. This includes configuration, calibration and testing as well as preparation of the corresponding documentation of this work. To be optimally equipped for these tasks, training in an electrical profession or as a mechanic/IT specialist, ideally supplemented with advanced training as a state-certified technician is required.
In addition to the relevant professional qualification, spatial skills/visual thinking, an independent and systematic working style and the ability to work well in a team are absolutely vital.
The work of a service technician in the field includes finding errors/defects/malfunctions and performing repairs, maintenance and modifications. Service assignments take place both in Germany and internationally, so willingness to travel as well as training in an electrical/electronics profession are required for service technicians. Due to the changing locations, flexibility with regard to working hours, reliability and the ability to work independently are important criteria.
Service management and hotline employees are indispensable in planning the service assignments of their colleagues as well as in providing advice to customers over the telephone. Customer contact and finding solutions are important parts of your daily work.
