Why we’re the
right partner

The Internet of Things is growing and more and more businesses are starting to develop products that can connect to it. With electronic embedded systems devices becoming increasingly connected in the world of IoT, it’s important to work with a recruiter that understands what is required of candidates working in this sector and can help to match the right people to the right roles.

IoT is a word that a lot of recruitment agencies use and claim to have expertise in. But to be an expert in all aspects of IoT would be a bit of a tall order.

We are an Internet of Things recruitment agency that specialises in working with electronics and embedded systems companies. We help businesses in this sector connect their devices or products to a range of networks using the available technology that goes hand in hand with the systems they are already using, integrating new technology with existing programs and systems.

As well as sourcing IoT engineering and developers, we also recruit for IT skills that businesses in this sector need to manage and store the data collected by these devices and systems.

Many electronics and embedded systems businesses that are looking to connect their device using IoT principles often already use sensors, software, streaming data and wireless comms hubs in their core products. KO2 can help to find a team of employees to help connect and exchange data with other devices and systems over the internet to connect the core product to the cloud.

We have worked on embedded IoT jobs and IoT cyber security jobs in the UK with businesses in a variety of industries to help them connect devices, from automotive businesses using IoT principles to understand driving styles and conditions, to medical device clients who want to connect their IoT medical device to the cloud to ensure the results of testing are stored safely, securely and accessibly.

We can recruit candidates for all IoT jobs in the UK that an electronics embedded systems business needs, with embedded IoT jobs suitable for embedded software engineers, electronics engineers, software developers, C++ developers, automated test engineers and data engineers. We don’t claim to do all IoT, but for electronics and embedded systems businesses looking to connect devices, we have it covered.
