Sales and Projects Engineer (Air Filtration)

The Role
This is a varied role doing 70% Design, Project Management, and Commissioning, plus 30% Sales of high quality Air Filtration equipment.

The Product

The product is an Air Filtration product that removes harmful gases from the air.
Example applications:

  • To remove corrosive gas out of the air to protect equipment.
  • To remove odours from the air i.e., wastewater treatment plants etc.
  • Building ventilation i.e., protecting datacentres and archives etc. from city gas like nitrogen dioxides.

Designing What?
You will design and supply the equipment that contains small pellets that absorb unwanted gases in the air. A lot of design will be basic design of sheet metal ducts and units that hold a fan and the air filtration media. There are also some fiberglass tanks that hold the air filtration media.
Day to Day could look like you going to site, measuring up, problem-solving on site, specifying and selecting equipment, designing equipment, and project managing small projects.
You will also be doing Technical Sales of the product too. For example, a customer might ring up and say, oh, I’ve got a corrosion problem. Can you send somebody?


This is a permanent 38 hour per week role, Monday to Friday.

Office Location

The Office is located in South Melbourne, Victoria.
This office is dedicated to another business unit, but you will still liaise with the general manager of this business and their administrator who will also help you out. I am told these two are great to work with. Socially, this will also give you colleagues to interact with and do social events with too.
Your Team
Australia based: You will have one Sales Engineer colleague based in Sydney.
New Zealand based: You will be well supported by an approachable manager who will visit you, a very experienced technical mentor, and a CAD Designer too.
You will need to be a pretty independent and self-motivated, and mature person, and okay working quite solo a lot of the time. The upshot is you will have a lot of freedom to plan how you do your job.

Where are the projects?
Your projects will be scattered all over Australia, mostly on the East Coast e.g., Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane. And some will also be in WA and South Australia too.


There will be a lot of travel with this role. An estimate for this is one week per month away but it might be spread out e.g., two days away one week and two days in another week.
Your Experience
Ideally, you will have experience with mechanical engineering and industry experience with air filtration, fans, HVAC, or activated carbon.

  • An engineering qualification (degree or trade) plus engineering experience
