>functional descriptions
idk I guess it's enough if you're somewhat good with words and grammar plus you've got the technical know-how/knowledge about the process/sequence/whatever it is you're writing about.
>robot programming
basic programming knowledge+probably some level of understanding about electrical/pneumatics diagrams and a fuckton of manuals is enough to get started lol. also helps if you're familiar with fieldbuses/their configuration, and maybe signal scaling but for everything else there's always a manual.
I've had to deal with machine vision, force sensors/force control, external axes configuration/programming, safety configurations and other shit, but it's always nicer if the applications are simple and none of that shit is needed lol

>> No.58290282

So my study is in process engineering
I've got quite some programming skills
I've done a bachelors in physics so I know basic ideas on electricity and pressure but no electrical engineering skills. I've done some signal/control stuff but not a lot. Like 1 course.
I actually did my thesis on computer vision so machine vision is probably not far off.
My verbal iq is pretty high, I'm fairly good at bullshitting. Thanks man. Any real important skills that are fundamental to the field
I guess I should go over some electrical diagrams, fieldbuses (I've got a vague notion as to what they are, used in control I think)
Maybe I can do this. Thanks senpai.

Oh damn I'm mad jelly
If I didn't go into my current field I'd have gone toward electrical engineering. I've actually been thinking that automation should be taking off a lot more. I once worked at a company when I was 15 or so doing manual labour. It was literally someone putting a box on a conveyor belt, it moving ten meters, and me taking it off again. Hurt the shit put of my back having to do that 8 hours. It was 20 people working there for jobs that could've been done by a few machines. No idea why that industry isn't automated yet. So much potential.
Thanks for your advice buddy, I'll keep this in mind.

no problem man always happy to help if I can. I used to work as a TIG welder before getting into engineering, mostly stainless steel and alloyed steel pipe welding for power plants etc. it was nice and paid relatively well but somehow I still ended up an automation engineer (mechanical engineer specializing in machine automation, my thesis focused on functional safety/machine safety in robotics) fiddling with robots
and yeah, automation should be taking off way faster than it actually is, and we've been getting more and more inquiries/RFP's/RFQ's about robotic solutions for the past year or so which is nice, and the trend def seems to be upwards.

>How does sales engineer compare overall (besides pay)?
It's a lot less pressure, for one. I don't even have an OTE component, it's literally just "percent of percent of all new business the company generated this quarter" thing which is nice because it doesn't put any specific targets on me other than "close this deal", and even thing indomt have like a decelerator or anything; if a deal slips to next quarter, just means I get my bonus later.

You have to be decently technically capable. Not sure if you want to stay in fintech and do SE there but having a free cloud cert or some DB systems background is always nice for 75% of saas companies these days. The way my boss explained it to me was "you're basically the front lines of our product" and it didn't make too much sense initially but now it does. the product team is too busy wanking off thinking about backlogs and hackathons to be able to communicate features and capabilities on a regular basis to people who aren't already customers, and the account executives are too retarded to learn anything other than superficial stuff about the product. So it's up to the sales engineers to be the bridge; you build collateral, you get face time with cumstomers doing off the shelf and bespoke demos, you understand their pain points and use cases, and you speak directly into their soul when you tell them how many late nights you'll save them. Because that's the real secret: analysts don't care about operational efficiency, they care about not having to spend all fucking day and night wrangling some other vendors useless POS solution, or god forbid - a homebrew solution - so they can go home and relax.

And when you tell them that, they will do your work for you in convincing the rest of their decision-makers.

That's sales engineering.

Depending on your COL id say that's solidly above average salary. Top end SEs won't max out above like 440k TC but moving to a new company will probably get you a 20-30% bump immediately

It honestly is comfy. Makes me feel like I can make the upper middle class dream happen. I have significantly more free time than most of my friends and it's still pretty fulfilling because your customers know what they want and you have to match their energy which leads to lots of natural "talking shop" kinda conversations even during commercial discussions.

The account executives will always get the public credit for ultimately closing a deal but you'll know they signed because of you. You know exactly why your product is great and your discovery/demo/implementation plan are really what decision-makers remember when they put down a John Hancock.
