  • 100+ automotive customers, including 14 of the world's top 15 auto manufacturers
  • The world's top six bearing manufacturers
  • 60 offshore and onshore wind farm operators who rely on InSight software and services to optimise operations and reduce the cost of energy

As a business founded on inspiration, innovation and improvement, we have been working since 1989 to provide:

  • Consulting - trusted advice and practical problem-solving that enable you to achieve measurable and sustainable process improvements
  • Software - targeted design and analysis tools for designers, analysts and engineers that support management goals
  • Services - proven engineering and support services, from concept and detailed designs through analysis to validation, testing, manufacture and end-to-end process improvements


Our values are what make us us! They are the basis of everything we do and try to achieve across the business.

We are 'One Romax': a flexible collaborative team of engineering specialists that incorporates the best talent from around the world, and focuses all our skills, abilities and resources on delivering for customers.


Four principles underpin our business:

We engineer a better world - we deliver what our customers need, when they need it, to succeed in their chosen areas. Our focus is on developing and delivering products and services that are technically superior, inherently sustainable and deliver measurable benefits.

We ensure innovation is at the heart of everything we do - our company is based on smart people thinking differently. It’s our job to consistently push forward the technical and scientific boundaries of what is possible. Based on our track record, we know that we can apply our intellect, experience and analytical skills to solve a multitude of customer problems and engineering issues. We also know that, sometimes, clarity and simplicity are far more valuable than needless complexity.

We strive to continuously improve - we take pride in our work and we never stand still. We believe that there is always a better way of doing things and we are committed to improve and progress - in our products, our processes and our people. We also understand the importance of working meticulously and of paying extraordinary attention to detail - the only way to achieve true quality and excellence.

We deliver value and build loyalty through longterm partnerships - we treat our customers as valued business partners, with shared interests and goals. We work alongside the world’s leading engineers, technology providers, manufacturers, government agencies, research teams and academic institutions.

Our company is made up of smart people who think outside the box.

It's our mission to consistently push boundaries and dream up new possibilities using intellect, experience and analytical skills to solve problems for our customers. To ensure that we do this, we look for the best talent from around the world. Over 50% of our staff are educated to Masters level or above, and our engineering team covers over 40 specialisations across consulting, process improvement, design, analysis, testing and manufacturing. 

By joining Romax Technology, you will be working alongside some of the best and brightest minds in engineering.

We believe our success is down to our people which is why we place huge importance on investing in them through training and development, and a comprehensive benefits package.

We are a hugely diverse and international workforce, there are over 18 nationalities in our UK headquarters alone, and we are an A rated visa sponsor.

We have offices located across 3 continents and our staff work collaboratively with colleagues from around the world. 

There are opportunities for travel and secondments from all locations. 

Our headquarters is in Nottingham, UK where over half of our workforce are based, along with 9 other global offices, and remote workers across Europe.

Each year we offer a number of places on our Global Graduate Scheme, and on our Summer Internship Programme to high quality students from engineering or related disciplines. For graduates it is a great start to your career, and for undergraduates a great opportunity to gain invaluable experience.

For both routes, the learning curve is steep but exciting with opportunities to learn from and work with world-leading experts on live projects. As a market-leading company, at the forefront of engineering development you will regularly be challenged and excited by the work you're involved in on a daily basis.

Graduate Scheme

We start recruiting for our graduate scheme in November each year, places are very limited so there is stiff competition for the places on offer. You will spend 12 months rotating through our departments in our UK headquarters, gaining experience and finding out where your passion lies! Once the 12 months are up, we will discuss the business needs and your preferences in order to allocate you a permenant role within the business with a clear path for career progression. 

Internship Programme 

We start recruiting for interns in December each year. You will join us in one department for a period of 8-12 weeks according to your preference and availability, and get to be involved in team meetings and live projects from day one. For some of the best interns we work with, if possible we can offer ad-hoc contracts to return throughout the year part time alongside your studies, or offer a second internship in a different department the following summer.

    I worked at Romax Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of exposure to interesting new technologies.
    Opportunity to really contribute to projects.
    Very talented staff, lots of people to learn from.
    I found my skills in Mechanical Engineering grew a lot, I also learned a lot about software and software development. I found my time at Romax has been very positive in terms of improving my employability and giving me a very up to date skill set.

    The company has a friendly atmosphere, and the people are really nice to work with. I made a lot of good friends there.

    Very good with flexible working, and working from home...the focus is on doing the work not where you do it.

    Cons

    Too close to the Starbucks, too many people bringing in cakes.

    If you stay doing the same kinds of projects, it can have some pitfalls (consulting projects are short high pace, R&D projects are long and deep), It's nice to do a mix of different kinds of projects. I found that did happen for me, but I had to encourage it. Once encouraged I got a very interesting mix of work.

    Advice to Management

    More rotation between the different types of projects, and the different departments for new employees. I saw more of this as I was leaving, in my view it's a good approach to continue with.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Romax Technology (Nottingham, England) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Initial 1hour phone interview. Before the face to face interview, you are required to complete a 3 hour psychometric/numeracy test. The on line tests are followed by a face to face 30 min HR interview with personal/character questions. Then a 1 hour technical panel interview. On successful completion of this you will be required to attend a second interview and give a 15 presentation, followed by 30 minutes of questions. After the presentation you are required to complete a 1.5 hour formal exam.
