Your new role

Main Accountabilities:

You should be able to fault find a variety of electrical, drive and control systems. This will often be on equipment for which you have not been specifically trained, so you will rely on previous experience and sound electrical engineering knowledge to safely solve problems.

When not assigned to customer site, the candidate will work closely with the local Sales Manager to assist in:
  • Developing new opportunities
  • Assisting in the technical aspects of proposals
  • Qualifying local subcontractors

Role Details:
  • The role will initially report into a Service Manager located in KL. Due to dynamics of working from various off sites, the candidate will need to be self-motivated and a hot starter who requires limited supervision.
  • As the member of a larger team, you will have a range of people who you can call on for guidance and technical assistance. It is important that the candidate is aware of their own limitations and knows when to stop work and ask for assistance.
  • The candidate may also be asked to assist in the design and engineering of various brown or green field projects.
  • The on-site work will be a mix of new installations, commissioning, breakdown support and customer visits.

Experience with the following products would be viewed favorably:
  • AVRs (e.g. Brush A12/A30, GE EX2000, EX2100, EX2100e, Siemens)
  • Generators (e.g. Brush, GE PC, Siemens SGT)
  • PLCs / DCS Systems (e.g. ABB, GE Rxi, Mark Vie, Siemens S7)
  • Protection Relays (e.g. ABB, GE, Alstom, Siprotek)
  • Drives (e.g. ESP1, DC2100e, SINAMICS, etc)
  • SCADA Systems (e.g. Cimplicity, Citect, etc)

What you'll need to succeed

  • Electrical, Mechatronic or similar Engineering degree
  • Strong written and verbal proficiency in English
  • The right to legally work in Malaysia
  • A valid passport, or ability to apply for one

Desired Technical Experience:

  • Electrification Design or Commissioning Experience (e.g. MCCs, Switchgear)
  • OEM knowledge from Siemens, ABB, GE
  • Generator, Motor, Bearing or Gearbox experience is a bonus
  • Strong computer skills (e.g. understanding of networking, quick to learn new software, able to solve common windows or software issues)
  • Advanced familiarity using Microsoft Office, Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

Desired Skills:
  • Quick learner
  • Self-motivated
  • Able to work independently and as part of a team
  • Ability to conformably converse with customers and colleagues in a professional environment
  • A keen focus on safety and a demonstrated record of implementing safety best practices
