Do you want to make a difference?
Nanopower has created the nPZero IC that is set to revolutionize the power consumption of wireless devices. We redefine low power consumption for battery-powered wireless devices. Our nPZero IC makes it possible for hardware developers to create products with unprecedented battery life.
By removing the battery bottleneck, we directly contribute to fewer discarded batteries, less electronic waste, new functionality, smaller size, and devices running on solely energy-harvesting technologies.
The best IC in the world still doesn’t sell itself
Sharing knowledge and building trust in Nanopower and our product is essential for our success. The Field Application Engineers (FAE) are our key interface with customers. Our customers are engineers creating products for a diverse array of industries and applications. To achieve a design win and sales, they must get the best possible support; and only a great FAE can do that.
You will be our customers' go-to expert for their product development
The Field Application Engineers are key to customer success. Your main goal will be to be the expert hardware designers lean on when low power is on the menu.
We are seeking technically knowledgeable, problem-solving, and experienced application engineers to join us. You will be the critical link between our customers and our IC designers, helping the customers integrate our IC into their products.
Low-power design means new challenges, attention to detail, and an understanding of how all components and firmware come together as a system. As an FAE, you combine technical expertise with knowledge of techniques to improve sales.
What you will do
Interact directly with customers in their product development, providing support on product and system level
Interact directly with distributors’ FAEs, make them look good
Be our own development team’s intelligence in the field, providing critical input into our development priorities
