Specialist Talent Search


Stay in the race for the best tech talent

We didn’t just try our hand at searching for tech talent in the automotive sector. It was something that evolved from our years of experience in the embedded and electronic systems market.

And it didn’t take nearly as long for us to realise how demanding this next step would be.

From understanding skills within autonomous technology to market developments like the tracking of tech project funding — success finding the right candidate requires lengthy periods of training and research.

Talent is also scarce. And even with the skills to find them, we still have to then entice them, which is equally challenging. 


Talent with these skills understand their value. It’s vital we listen carefully to their aspirations and learn where they align with our client’s offering.

This may take more than one exchange, which is normal.

Even that first conversation gives us a better understanding of current candidate expectations, further insight into how competitive our client’s offering is, and where they may need to adapt to ensure further dialogue.

Basically, all essential information we share with the client so they stay in the race for the best tech talent.

Now, can you afford to be left behind?

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.
