Due to high levels of activity in Scotland, we have a new vacancy for an additional Applications Engineer based in our Glasgow to join our award winning technical team.

Job Description

As a Solid Solutions Applications Engineer you have a great opportunity to use your Mechanical, Electrical and Electronics knowledge to help develop and support CAD usage within the Solid Solutions customer base of 15,000 companies.

This could be delivering a pre-sales demonstration, conducting on-site consultancy, in the classroom delivering a training course or working on the support desk resolving specific issues. As part of the World’s Most Qualified SOLIDWORKS Technical Team, you are encouraged to develop your Mechanical, Electrical and Electronics capabilities, with the chance to become the ‘best of the best’ as a SOLIDWORKS Elite Applications Engineer and Gold Partner CAM Certified Expert.

This is a significant challenge in its own right. The learning curve is steep but definitely worthwhile. Understanding how SOLIDWORKS and the best Electrical/ Electronics systems are used in many different industries to develop and make many different products means you’re never short of new experiences and the opportunity to travel. 

Your Experience / Skills

  • Problem solving skills
  • Ability to learn and take on new skills across the product range
  • Strong interpersonal skills
  • Disciplined approach to customer follow-up
  • Strong organisation skills and attention to detail
  • Strong presentation skills
  • Suitably qualified in Mechanical, Electrical or Electronics Engineering, ideally (but not essential) covering a collection of these areas

Experience of any Mechanical, Electrical & Electronics package would be a distinct advantage, as would specific knowledge of using SOLIDWORKS. If you have a proven track record in problem solving and the expertise and passion to focus your energy on the needs of our engineering design customers we would like to hear from you.

The Role

We are looking for individuals with the drive and commitment to go the extra mile who can demonstrate:

  • The ability to understand the needs of our customers and to work closely with them and others in our extensive technical support team to present solutions to meet client needs.
  • The ability to work with our customer base across a wide range of industries providing proactive advice and exceptional customer service.

Typical Activities Include:

  • Conducting pre sales demonstrations of our software solutions to prospective customers
  • Conducting technical visits to customers to resolve problems and advise best practices
  • Additional pre sales work such as support of evaluations/trials and benchmarks
  • Delivering training courses for the product range at Solid Solutions' offices and customer sites
  • Telephone support to solve customer problems

We offer full training and career development to individuals with the drive and commitment to go the extra mile. Successful candidates will have the ability to develop customer relationships, to understand their needs and translate into solutions that deliver real business benefits.

We also put a lot of emphasis on the SOLIDWORKS certification program which is a means of upskilling application engineers across the whole product portfolio to ensure our engineers are in the best possible position to support our customer base. Full internal training and development programs are in place for this, alongside bonus incentives for successful engineers.


The Company

Solid Solutions is a great place to work. Despite having over 200 employees nationwide we retain the energy and enthusiasm usually associated with younger, smaller companies. Ideas are encouraged, voices are heard and efforts are directly translated into business successes. The sense of community also extends outside work hours with some great social events.
