Territory Sales Managers: Senior, Intermediate and Junior

As the result of business expansion, Senior, Intermediate and Junior full-time sales positions are now available within several sales territories in the USA and Canada.  We are looking for sales leaders who can manage and grow our current customer base and identify new opportunities, using a consultative sales approach.  Sales territories are geographically large, containing a range of university, hospital and industrial research labs.  Therefore you will need to be able to travel and make onsite visits to customers and prospects. Experienced PTI application specialists will be available to help you to identify sales opportunities and close sales. Supervision and support for the salesperson will be remote for those territories that require the salesperson to be located in the field and away from the PTI home offices. While product training, sales mentoring and technical support will be available, you will be expected to be a self-starter. You will participate in trade shows and promotional activities to improve our overall market share. This position will report to the North American Sales Manager.

Essential Knowledge and Skills

These positions require an undergraduate degree in either chemistry, physics, biology or engineering science or equivalent work experience.  A Masters or PhD degree is preferable.  A technical background will facilitate gaining the significant application and product knowledge necessary to effectively sell our research quality spectrofluorometers and fluorescence imaging systems.  Experience in a research lab with fluorescence instrumentation or selling high tech instruments to university labs and hospitals would be a plus. We are looking for enthusiastic individuals with a passion for selling and those who have excellent written and verbal communication skills. They must be able to represent our company in a professional manner.


Base salary and generous commissions with excellent benefits.
