We are Techne

We find talent in one of the most innovative and competitive markets in the world.

Talent is only found successfully with specialist knowledge of that sector, including its technical requirements.

That’s why no one at Techne ever contacts potential clients or looks for candidates until they acquire this knowledge.

Because only then can they gather data of real quality. Data we pore over and share with you to find and deliver a better standard of candidate, faster.

Search smarter

At Techne, we believe you can only be good at finding something if you know all there is to know about it. That’s why we invest heavily in training our own people to have excellent technical and market knowledge in their specific fields. This leads to a better understanding of client briefs, a meticulous approach to market mapping and a more dynamic candidate network.

Basically, it makes us an invaluable resource for anyone searching for talent in the challenging world of embedded and electronic systems.

However much we value smart thinking and savvy searching, more is needed to find that elusive ideal candidate. More understanding of your company ethos so that we can find like-minded talent. More collaboration to ensure our thinking remains aligned and success remains on track.

We achieve both by working with you throughout our talent search; encouraging weekly progress calls, sharing valuable market and candidate insights, and offering support and guidance throughout the acceptance process.

Work together


Techne has been instrumental in expanding our software department in Rimac Technology. The team not only helped us scale our existing locations with their immense support, they were also instrumental in bringing up our UK office in Warwick by putting us in contact with our first hires and helping us find a great team lead. I'm looking forward to the future cooperation, no doubt they will continue to play a big role in helping us bring in great talent.

David Romic, RIMAC

We used Techne's services as we re-built our team. They truly worked to understand both the skill mix and the engineering culture we required; and with their insight, matched excellent well thought out candidates to fill our roles. An excellent experience, and I have gained some top world class recruits

Peter Conboy, Mercedes AMG High-Performance Powertrain

Techne's diligence and desire to create a win-win relationship was clear. The team are experts in understanding job requirements and every candidate presented to me was spot on. I appreciate their deep knowledge of every candidate they presented and detailed mapping of a candidate's job experience to my requirements. Having worked with many recruiters before, Techne by far was the most efficient and most effective.

Ziad Abu Lebdeh, Ouster

Techne is extremely professional and passionate about their work. I had the pleasure of working with them in finding ASIC DV candidates for my team. Techne was promptly available for any questions I had and answered all my questions with full transparency and honesty. They had excellent knowledge of the technical requirements that the candidate needs to be successful and suitable for the roles they are submitted too. I recommend Techne to both candidates and employers who are seeking a knowledgeable, honest, and dedicated recruitment company.

Tao Liu, Enfabrica
