Energy and Utilities

KO2 have vast experience recruiting within energy and utilities. Energy and utilities within electronics and embedded systems is a great example of how the sector has developed.

Our Expertise

Energy and Utilities recruitment within electronics and embedded systems has gone from a standalone device such as a gas or electricity meter, to a smart meter that transfers data from the device to a communications hub and the cloud.

Electronics and embedded systems clients within energy and utilities are not just focussed on smart energy, there are the clients who develop energy networks globally, clients who develop smart boilers and clients who develop smart flow meters.

Whether it’s developing an attractive smart home hub for all the homes energy needs to a rugged device sitting on a substation and transmitting data. We have it covered.

Wireless protocols tend to be a skill set often required within energy and utilities. Energy and utilities clients often look for knowledge of low power wireless protocols such as Zigbee, BLE, Bluetooth, 3G, 4G and WiFi.

At every stage of the lifecycle, from requirements capture to test, we can support you.

Why we’re the
right partner

We have tracked the changes within the energy and utilities sector and the knock on effect to businesses within the electronics and embedded systems sector. No more is energy for the home boiler, a wall mounted heating display and light switch.

We are experts in helping clients use the tools and protocols available within the electronics and embedded systems sector to help create beautiful smart home hubs that control the heating, the lighting and the home’s security. KO2 have helped deliver smart boilers and have even helped the IC businesses who develop the SOC and the protocol used in a smart energy system.

We have recruited for businesses who design and develop monitoring systems for substations, businesses who design on-line monitoring system providing measurements of Hydrocarbons and Oil in Water and clients who  design and develop gas sensors and analysers.

Electronics and Embedded Systems businesses looking for skills within Energy and Utilities often make their hiring decisions based on experience within sectors where key skills and industrial techniques are similar. We find electronics and embedded systems businesses within smart energy, smart lighting, smart boilers and home safety and security have the need for similar skills.

We have helped a variety of businesses within the utilities sector and the techniques used to monitor gas whilst analysing the readings, the complexities of a monitoring the flow of energy to an electric vehicle charge point and the similarities to the intelligent battery charges and power supplies used with ATS control systems all lend themselves to one another.

We can recruit all skills that an electronics and embedded systems business needs for energy and utilities businesses, including electronics engineers, embedded software engineers, mechanical engineers, software developers, C++ developers, automated test engineers and data engineers.

Don’t take our word for it

“We’ve used KO2 for our technical recruitment for a few years now. They have become our default agency as they understand our technical requirements and have supplied us excellent staff over the years. Thoroughly recommended.”
