Simrenjit (Sunny) Singh

Applications Engineer

What does your job entail?
My job is a mix of Pre-Sales Applications / Technical Support / Training and working with various departments such as Sales, Engineering, and Manufacturing to find a complete solution that will fit our customer’s needs. In a nutshell, I make product recommendations, but it’s a little more complicated than it sounds.

What is the best part of your job?
Learning about new products and technologies and being able to not just read about them but actually get my hands dirty in the lab, and in the field. I get to see how and why our products are designed the way they are and how the work we do here actually impacts our customers in the real world. Another thing I like about my job is the opportunity to take initiative to do projects that could help the organization. For example, I started created 3D models for some of our products and created demonstration kits for our sales personnel that we didn’t have before.

Have your position changed over time?
I started with AMETEK right after graduating college initially as an Applications Engineer, strictly to do product recommendations based on customer requirements. Since then my role has evolved to include technical field service, site surveys, sales calls, product training for internal and external customers, project management for new engineering requests, creating new documentation whether it be for training or marketing, and assisting engineering with any new product testing. 

What does a typical day look like for you?
Most of my work day consists of email requests and phone calls to assist our representatives and distributors with product selection. There is a lot that needs to be taken into consideration and requires teamwork and collaboration from other departments. So along with emails you’ll see me running around the building interacting with members from Engineering for insights on whether something is possible or not, Sales for lead times and pricing, and Manufacturing to discuss how things would be built.

What is the work environment like at AMETEK STC?
Everyone at my division has been with Ametek for a very long time and helps one another in and out of the office. It’s an environment where things can go from calm to rowdy within hours but it keeps things interesting and I’m happy to say that I feel like part of a family being here.
