  • Embedded system development experience is crucial when designing a battery management system that will work in tandem with a vehicle’s energy storage system
  • Almost every one of our previous roles has required candidates to have worked in the automotive industry in a previous role, either as an engineer or a technician.
  • Why KO2?

    With the transport sector now utilising more modern technology, KO2 has found growing requests for skills that haven’t previously been needed by electronics and embedded system businesses working in that industry sector. Automotive manufacturers are requiring embedded systems engineers to work on software and circuits needed in battery management systems for example, and we are hiring the right candidates for these roles.

    A battery management system is a perfect example of the kind of embedded system that we specialise in recruiting for. We have worked with electronics embedded systems businesses for 25 years, meaning that we have exceptional insight into recruiting in this sector and know what our candidates and clients are looking for.

    We hire for roles at all stages of the software development life cycle, so no matter your requirements, we can find the right engineer for the opportunity. Automotive battery design is an industry that we predict will continue growing, and working with a recruiter who understands this area inside out is definitely your best option.
