South Bend, Indiana - Full Time

Field Service Technician: Global Travel and Professional Growth

Are you ready to travel the globe?  As a Field Service Technician at MTI, a worldwide leader in welding technologies, you will have the training, support and independence to do just that. MTI is a family run business, and we treat our employees like family.  We have equipment that needs to be installed and maintained throughout the world both domestically and internationally. Your electrical and mechanical abilities will allow you to grow from within while using some of the latest technologies. Join us and build your career in a fast-paced, challenging Field Service Technician position, installing, maintaining, and servicing state-of-the-art machinery for prestigious clients throughout the globe!

As a Field Service Technician for MTI, based out of South Bend, IN, your primary mission will be to travel extensively throughout the U.S. and the World using your installation and trouble shooting skills with MTI's state of the art joining and welding equipment. Your superior skills with the diagnosis and repair of electronics systems are absolutely central to the job, but your ability to build relationships with a wide range of customers in the field runs a close second. Additional experience with mechanical, pneumatics, hydraulics or robotic systems will really make you a top candidate. Working knowledge of ladder logic, Allen Bradly or Siemens PLCs would be a great asset to your credentials.  You will also be able to travel up to 75% of the time with half of that being international (all the while receiving a sizable travel bonus). Bring the above technical skills (even if you haven't been in the field before), your love of travel, your ability to read blueprints and schematics and a willingness to learn and grow and be positioned for success within a company that will provide extensive training and cares about what you have to contribute.
