Our Expertise in Software Developer Recruitment

The world of software development is changing. With devices becoming increasingly connected in the world of IoT, more electronics embedded systems businesses now require software development skills to support the devices that they are creating and ensure that their products remain competitive on the market.

Devices are collecting millions of pieces of data, storing them in the cloud and presenting these on desktop and mobile applications. The need for software developers that understand embedded systems in particular and have experience designing programs for them to run on is widespread, with many businesses now hiring with specific requirements for candidates with experience in this sector.

Our specialism as embedded systems software developer recruiters is being able to provide candidates that are not only exceptionally skilled, but also ones who have experience developing software for electronics embedded system-based businesses. This allows the software developer to fit in the environment quickly and hit the ground running with their work, creating a smoother recruitment process for everyone involved.

The typical software developer opportunities we work on require candidates to programme in C++, C#, WPF, Python, Java, PHP and Ruby on Rails. Aside from having the relevant software development experience, our clients also usually require applicants to know about working in an embedded systems environment.

As an experienced software developer recruitment agency, KO2 have experience placing candidates in software developer jobs throughout the software lifecycle. We’ve worked with a variety of businesses that range from small start-ups to global organisations, sourcing software developers that are an ideal fit for the team.

Software Development Recruitment UK – FAQs

Which city is best for a software engineer job in the UK?

According to a study by Computer World, Cambridge, London and Reading are three of the best UK cities for tech jobs such as software engineering. Other locations that made their list of the best places to work include Manchester, Bristol, Edinburgh and Birmingham.

How long does it take to recruit a software engineer?

The length of time it takes to recruit a software engineer really depends on the length and efficiency of the recruitment process. In some cases the process may take several months, whereas if you quickly find a suitable candidate and organise each stage of the recruitment process in good time, it could take less than two weeks to hire someone new.

Can I be a software engineer with no experience?

It is possible to become a software engineer without any practical experience, but you will need to have studied a subject that has given you the relevant skills and knowledge to do the work required for the role. Many graduate software engineers go into their first roles without professional experience, but you will need to have some experience in things like writing code and building programs if you want to compete with other candidates.

How do I recruit the best software developer?

The best approach for recruiting the best software development has two different elements. You need to look for talented candidates in unconventional places as well as use job adverts, as many software developers might not actively be seeking a new role. You also need to refine your recruitment process so that candidates don’t get put off by having to wait too long or go through unnecessary screening.
