    Our Story

    KO2 saw a gap in the market for a recruitment company that specialised in the Electronics and Embedded Systems sector.

    We built our foundations helping clients develop their hardware and software products.

    As technology has advanced, the skills required by Electronics and Embedded Systems businesses have changed and we now support cloud, artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions to delivering connected devices and systems.
