I am writing to apply for the Director, Systems Engineering position at Company Z as advertised on LinkedIn. I am keen to apply my relevant skills and experience gained through working in the Operations and Systems Engineering field with a strong interest in engineering and technology.
My enthusiasm to work for Company Z has been fostered by your reputation for being a leading provider of advanced, enterprise-class technology to clients. I am excited by the prospect of applying my analytical and creative engineering skills, which I believe will be of great use to Company Z.
I have been managing and leading a small Systems Engineering team for the past 12 years, during which I developed and implemented multiple process automation workflows to reduce administrative overhead. This allowed for team members to focus their time on more complex engineering tasks, ensuring that the most effective engineering solutions were implemented within the timescales required. This is something that I am very passionate about, as it has helped me to provide an advanced level of service to potential clients.
My passion for systems engineering and technology has been further enhanced by an academic background in Mathematics and an interest in game design. I am a lifelong enthusiast of technology and enjoy being involved in the development of new systems and products. My strong interest in technology led me to study Mathematics at University, where I developed my practical engineering knowledge and theoretical mathematical background. This has been invaluable when applying mathematical and problem-solving skills to Engineering problems.
In reviewing your team’s objectives, I believe that my experience is in perfect line with your current needs. After reviewing my resume, I am confident you will agree that my proven performance record and ambition will be an asset to the company.
