Technical Sales and Marketing Intern
LightPointe manufactures gigabit capacity 60/70/80 GHz point-to-point radios and 4th generation hybrid Free Space Optics wireless bridges capable of 99.999% availability. We are the number one manufacturer of hybrid backhaul radios with FSO technology and number one provider of optical outdoor wireless Ethernet links worldwide. We are headquartered in San Diego, California.
LightPointe is searching for a part-time “technical sales and marketing intern” interested in working with our Sales, Marketing and Business Development personnel on lead generation, customer research and technical sales. The person ideally suited for this position would likely be a current student working on their degree (BS, EE, MS, Ph.D., Physics) and interested in getting some real-world experience with a leading wireless communications company, as it pertains to technical sales. This is not an engineering position. The hours are minimal and flexible (3 to 8 hours a week), making this opportunity perfect for a busy student. And we are open to a term ranging from one to several months or more, depending on results. This is an entry level part-time position, and a chance to get your feet wet with a wireless manufacturer and broad product line while possibly gaining lab / class credit depending on your school/circumstances.
The ideal candidate:
-Enthusiasm for outdoor wireless technology and eagerness to quickly learn about associated RF and optical products, and the technical sales process associated with data bridges for small business enterprises, wireless distributors and resellers.
-Basic knowledge of radio frequency wireless technology and/or optical transmission (e.g., wireless LAN, networking technologies, WiMax, LTE, backhaul, outdoor wireless).
-Ability to professionally contact prospective customers/users of point-to-point wireless systems in one or more geographic markets via phone and/or email and determine whether they are interested in carrying or buying LightPointe products (distributors, dealers, end users).
-Ability to learn how to assess a prospective customer’s needs and identify the best wireless bridging solution for their optimum satisfaction.
-Speak fluent English (and preferably one other language such as Spanish, Portuguese, German, Mandarin Chinese, etc.). Depending on your background, we might assign you to a specific industry niche or region.
Please email a resume or a simple explanation of your interest and qualifications for this internship. Due to the high volume of applications, we are not able to respond to every inquiry.
