Having a background in areas such as Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS), Diagnostics/Prognostics or Industrial Condition Monitoring (CM) is key.

The focus will be on supporting sales and delivery of our successful machine learning cloud-based software product, therefore experience with software applications is highly desirable as opposed to experience with hardware or IT infrastructure.

You should understand the maintenance data generated in the operational environment and how this can be exploited to augment sensor data for HUMS and CM applications.

You should be confident in providing training on the functionality of software applications to different end user levels from including administrators, engineering users, and management users. Having proven experience in either training or presenting would be advantageous as well as being able to define training material.
