Job Posting Title Applications Engineering Program

Job Description This is your chance to innovate a better world. In our challenging and highly-competitive Applications Engineering program, you’ll get to use your technical and creative engineering skills while gaining valuable experience working with real customers and real products on real business problems. Opportunities are available in North America, Asia and Europe.

About the job

Applications Engineers at Texas Instruments (TI) are a highly-motivated, collaborative group with great team spirit and a strong commitment to the customer. In this role, you will promote TI products and provide technical solutions to customers that will ultimately go into consumer products like Smartphones, PC peripherals, personal medical devices, electric cars, e-bikes and much more. You’ll also provide technical support and engage with customers to help define new products and opportunities for future product development.

About the program

As a program participant, you’ll work on breakthrough technologies through two six-month job rotations in Customer Field Engineering (Field) and Product Applications Engineering (Factory) over a 12-month time period.

Program participants begin with a two-week orientation. These first weeks will give you a basic understanding of TI, our business units and products, and the program itself, along with information on how to navigate corporate life and your first taste of engineering tools and skills. As soon as orientation ends, you will jump into your first of two rotation assignments with either an Analog or Embedded Processing focus.

The Field rotation is located in the home country and is centered on learning how to work directly with customers to solve their problems and position TI to gain share. You’ll have an assigned group of customers and will dive deep to understand their end equipment and applications (asking: what is the customer trying to build?) and how to apply TI technology to win.

The Factory rotation puts you on an applications team in one of TI’s product lines at the company’s headquarters in Dallas, Texas. During this assignment, you will gain a deep understanding of specific products within the business unit – how to position them, typical problems/barriers, how to test/debug and how to solve customer problems at a system level. Both rotations are hands-on, highly-challenging technical problem-solving focused with the goal of helping you to create compelling solutions and win business for TI.

At the end of your program, you’ll become a member of one of our Field or Factory (U.S. participants only) applications teams, where you will have direct responsibility for understanding the product group through the eyes of the customer and solving problems to gain share within our customer accounts.

And it doesn’t stop there. You’ll be mentored along the way by the best and the brightest engineering minds and take part in customized learning opportunities. You’ll also have the chance to travel to TI sites and customer facilities within your region of the world and gain meaningful experience working directly with global team members and customers.


Qualified candidates will have an engineering degree, preferably a BSEE, BSCE or BSCS. We’re searching for program participants who have excellent communication skills, the ability to influence decisions, the competitive edge to win, a sense of urgency, and the drive to build strong, influential relationships both inside and outside of the company.
