Under the leadership and strategic direction of the new CEO and with the full backing of the Austrian Head Office, the Chinese organization has embarked on an exciting path of expansion and growth. To support this growth, Gantner Instruments Beijing, is looking for a highly skilled Technical Sales Manager, Test Measurement & Control Systems, to head up the Shanghai Region.

You will be a good fit for this position if, aside from the professional qualification, you are comfortable in a culturally diverse organization with European DNA. Flat hierarchies throughout the organization mean that you have to possess a high degree of self-management but also a clear focus on collaboration and team work. An openness for learning and a clear understanding of your own strength and weaknesses will be an advantage. The company China Head Office and all support functions is based in Beijing.
