KEYENCE is currently offering both full-time and internship roles. Please reach out to me if you are interested in hearing more about the company, how we recruit, benefits of working with us (Pay Structure).


The internship is 5 weeks long in Chicago at headquarters. It is paid $15/hr and the company covers housing, gives you a rental car, and pays for your flights to/from Chicago. It’s mainly going to be inside sales engineering work, market research, and learning about the technology. You would be working with a team of interns to help out the full time sales reps and other people working for the company. Additionally, you would be doing some job shadowing for higher-ups or working with other full time staff. 


The full-time role is focused on outside, business to business selling and is territory based. This means that you could chose from tons of territories all across the US for where you would want to work. We have tons of openings in big cities like Boston, NYC, LA, Philadelphia, and many more. The job role is more problem solving/consultative selling, meaning that you will be able to help other businesses solve some problems that they have been facing by selling in KEYENCE’s products. 


The pay structure for the full-time role is base pay + variable compensation. Base pay is between $50K and $72K depending on where your home office is located. Additionally, on average, all employees are paid an additional $22K per year from bonuses. This is much higher than the national average annual salary ($44,727).
