  • 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.

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 have been working at Romax Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company made rapid response at the beginning of the pandemic, with encouraging people to work from home earlier than government's official timing. During the lock down period, top management arranged frequent global briefing sessions to get global teams information. Recent downturn in engineering areas have been somewhat inevitable due to slow down of existing projects and new projects intake. The company also made quick decision in terms of flexible resourcing, furloughing, and work hours during work-from-home. The company even paid last year's bonuses recently with everything else is going on. With redundancies news everyday happening in the UK, I am grateful to the management team for their understanding, agility, and transparency. I read some of the reviews recently and felt that it is very unfair for the management team, especially Andy, who has been looking after and growing businesses at this unprecedented time. Please keep up great work, and we need to keep our jobs!

    Cons

    The company has been running in a very flexible way, so it sometimes lacks of accountability in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    Please ignore those personal attack and focus on running our business. We had a great growth for recent years, we need to keep up great work!

    Application

    I interviewed at Romax Technology in November 2019.

    Interview

    Sending CV and cover letter I had a telephone interview after 4 weeks.

    The telephone interview was informal in general. I believe that I did very well at that one. At the end of the day, the telephone interview should give the interviewer the impression that the interviewee deserves a chance to prove his/her technical competence according to his/her CV.

    Unfortunately, he preferred not to even give that chance. In my CV it's well obvious that I am way above average student, MSc, many related projects to what they do, two publications, with one of them is a novel proposal that is at a post doc level, and away from being confident in what I know.

    There are two possible reasons to what happened. One is that the interviewer is not really qualified to decide who should get and who shouldn't be given the chance. Two is that I was declined because of being an international graduate (UK, Nottingham headquarter)

    In both cases I am really disappointed. I really thought this was my chance since I felt I am a great fit to the vacancy. What a waste of time and concentration!
