  • Write proposal of contracts and estimates;
  • Represent Boréas Technologies at various trade fairs (Smart Haptics, CES, World Haptic, Display Week, Euro Haptic, etc.)

  • You have an education and / or relevant experience in electrical engineering (DEC, BAC), in order to be able to fully understand and sell our technology;
  • You have experience in B2B commercial prospecting, you are a skilled negotiator, and you are intellectually sharp;

  • You have excellent communication skills (including listening!), you are client-oriented, and you easily relate to others;
  • You are recognized for your ability to work in a team;
  • You develop and deliver presentations with impact;
  • You are familiar with CRM software (Hubspot or other);
  • You are bilingual (French / English);
  • Post-COVID- you can travel abroad up to 20% of the time;
  • You can be flexible with your schedule to meet the needs of our international customers (mostly Asia).

 

It would be an asset, if in addition:

  • You have experience with complex sales;
  • You have knowledge of haptics or mechanics;
  • You have additional language knowledge (Mandarin, Korean, Japanese)

  • The possibility of working from our offices in Bromont and / or from an appropriate remote office. We encourage hybrid working methods.
  • A pleasant and healthy working environment. Our offices are in the heart of nature, in the Bromont science park aka the Silicon Valley of Quebec, which allows you to work in a superb, calm and magnificent environment.
  • A cafeteria and terrace equipped for breaks and lunch hours. Fun fact: the team are keen on having their coffee together every day at 10:30 am. It just goes to show that happiness at work sometimes comes from small things!
