How to find a good Mechatronics Engineer

  • Post category:News

Are you looking for a Mechatronics Engineer, but you don’t know how and where to look for valid figures for your company? Have you already tried to publish an ad on Linkedin, Monster and Infojobs, but in addition to having spent time screening CVs and not having found the person you were looking for, you have activated some external suppliers without satisfactory results?

You are reading the right article… read how Ricercamy supports electronic, mechanical, manufacturing and energy companies in the search and selection of specialised profiles.

The Mechatronic Engineer is a professional figure who is an expert in the design, construction and management of mechanical systems. He mainly works in companies that manufacture components for automatic machines. Mechatronics makes it possible to integrate mechanical systems with electronic components, with the help of software and electronic control units that enable them to be controlled. The professional’s aim is to increase production efficiency and reduce human labour. Amongst the various projects we can find motion control systems, sensors that connect machines to each other or to the environment, and instruments for precision measurements. The project begins with the definition of the specifications of each component, followed by the technical and economic feasibility plan. After this first phase, we move on to the actual project, through the creation of drafts, technical drawings, design of electrical circuits, control systems, PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) and embedded software. This is followed by prototyping and testing, where simulations are carried out with software and electronic control units. To prevent the prototype from malfunctioning, several revisions are carried out, this process is repeated so that the product meets certain specifications. He is also involved in the installation and maintenance of the designed systems, providing the relevant technical documentation, and may also be involved in training and support activities for other technicians.

What does a Mechatronics Engineer do?

Study the feasibility and performance of mechanical and electrical systems;
Design and manufacture machinery for specific fields, from the energy sector to electrical machinery;
Planning and managing projects in their entirety, carrying out inspections, compiling documents, right up to monitoring individual components;
Managing complex systems such as production plants or power stations;
Supervise, monitor and control a project from the point of view of legal obligations and compliance with safety regulations;
Produce technical documentation and draft reports;
Provide technical consultancy work for Industry 4.0

Main characteristics required:

Has a specific degree in Mechatronics Engineering or a related degree course in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Computer Engineering, Industrial Engineering, important aspect is having carried out internships or project work in companies;
Knowledge of robotics and industrial automation;
Knowledge of the main object-oriented software programming languages (C, C++, C#…);
He/she is able to use instrumentation to control specific electrical parameters for testing and control;
Has creative and analytical skills as well as mechanical and mathematical skills;
Possesses critical thinking skills;
Has important organisational qualities and the ability to manage time and resources.

The Mechatronics Engineer has numerous employment opportunities, as a highly sought-after professional figure both nationally and internationally. In a dynamic labour market he is highly appreciated for his ability to manage and integrate his multidisciplinary skills at every level of design; in an Industry 4.0, the study of mechatronics makes it possible to increase safety and improve working conditions. Combined mechanical, electrical and IT technologies will be increasingly in demand on the market because of their wide versatility, and there is a trend towards integrating the various systems into a single product governed and managed by a single control system. The mechatronics sector is therefore very stimulating from a work point of view, the engineer can unleash his creativity with the creation of prototypes, equipped with sensors and components, which can help companies to exploit their full potential.

Ricercamy, a revolutionary and dynamic head hunter, born in March 2012, has, since its inception, been committed to introducing innovative elements into the world of Search and Selection that would improve the redemption of Recruiting activities.


According to a study by Linkedin, 75% of talents are passive and already working, not proactively looking for new professional opportunities. Only 25% of them are more consistently interested in actively searching for new job offers. Therefore, investing the company’s budget in subscriptions and/or offers from job posting platforms cannot be the only effective solution.


It is necessary to adopt a methodology that allows you to reach the best candidates: headhunting calls! (or Head Hunting, as we call it).

This is how our specialised headhunters find qualified staff for our clients.

Our consultants’ anonymous calls are able to intercept any profile with different seniorities.

Through a very thorough pre-screening by telephone, in addition to the personal data, we collect all the specifications on the candidate’s experience necessary to assess its validity and thus allow the candidate to access the next step.

All of the above is carried out and shared in real time via a cloud file with our HR contact in the client company.


Transparency and immediate sharing is a distinctive feature of Ricercamy, which has specialised over the years in the search and selection of technical figures in the mechanical, electrical and electronic fields, thanks to the development of specific skills and knowledge of the profiles sought and the reference market.


Our headhunter’s operating method does not require the client to wait 2-3 weeks to receive the first shortlist of valid profiles. For us, headhunting means sharing in real time and working unfiltered and hand-in-hand with our HR contact.

By searching for staff on a daily basis, our headhunters have acquired know-how and specialisation in their fields, which allows us to be a leader in this market crowded with recruiters.

On the strength of our tools, since its inception, Ricercamy has helped engineering companies in the selection of qualified personnel who are difficult to find and to place. Thanks to Ricercamy’s SMART commercial offer, our clients ask us to carry out selections that they have always tended to do internally, but with certain costs and no complition fees or exclusivity, they feel free to delegate the management of their vacancies to us.
