Hiring Engineers in India

India now enjoys a global standing in the world when it comes to engineering. Our education sector is producing quality engineers who’re innovatively applying their knowledge and skills. A creative spark now drives Indian engineering, making us valuable assets to businesses domestic and foreign. If you are running an engineering-driven enterprise outside India, it is time you look into hiring engineers in India. India’s mechanical engineering sector is currently booming, every mechanical engineer having the potential to become a golden goose for their company. 

Which sectors to look into when hiring engineers in India?

Recruiting talent in India means you will need to facilitate remote working for the off-site engineers. When it comes to mechanical engineering, a sizeable portion of the work happens on-site. With remote hiring, look into engineering sectors where your employees in India can work off-site. Naturally, production and manufacturing are not very conducive.

Instead, focus on engineering design and related engineering services. 

  1. CAD/CAM

Computer Aided Design / Computer Aided Manufacturing is a software technology used to create prototypes of engineering designs. An engineer shares the outputs of their CAD/CAMs with the shopfloor engineers, who use the blueprint to build the actual product. This is surely an avenue where the brains and the brawns so to speak can coordinate remotely.

  • Mechanical Modelling

Mechanical modelling helps engineers share their visions and ideas as 2D or 3D models with the entire team. These models, derived from drawings / sketches bring a lot of clarity to the project. A lot of effort and planning goes into the design phases of the project, so there are almost no faults during the implementation. You can certainly find quality engineers in India who can come up with unique models and ideas and collaborate from afar.

  • Project Engineering

Your projects need to function just as smoothly as the products your engineers bring to life. Project engineers are engineers who are tasked with making the project run like a well-oiled machine. They act in the capacity of project managers who deal with the hands-on coordination between various aspects of the project. A good project manager will make your life easier and help drive efficiencies and speed in your projects. This is another role which your engineers in India can handle, without needing to be present on-location.

  • Piping Design

Piping designers are in charge of plotting out the layout of the engineering plant, with the proper locations of equipment and deciding the actual development of mechanical models. Experienced piping designers can become great sources in project optimization and proper resource utilization. They are responsible only for the blueprint designs of the plant, which they can very well manage remotely.

India’s Recent Laurels in Engineering

India has become like a magnet for engineering design companies. While keeping the processes of manufacture and production in their own domestic plants, businesses are looking towards India for thought and design.

  1. Our success in supporting Dubai’s Oil Firms

Our strategic oil storage systems are much coveted by oil firms in the UAE. Through excellent engineering, India has built a 5.33 million tonne (MT) of emergency storage, enough to provide for oil for 9.5 days, in underground rock formations in Mangalore and Padur in Karnataka and Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh. It has allowed foreign oil companies to store oil in the storages which will come in handy during emergencies. The ISPRL (Strategic Petroleum Reserve entity of India) and ADNOC (Abu Dhabi National Oil Company) of UAE signed a Memorandum of Understanding to partner up in utilizing these strategic reserves.

  • Flourishing Automotive Industries

The 118-billion-dollar automotive industry in India is projected to reach $300 billion by 2026.

India’s annual automobile production has been 30.91 million vehicles in 2019 as against 29.08 million in 2018. A growth of 6.26%.

India is expected to emerge as the world’s third-largest passenger vehicle market by 2021. In FY 2018-19, sale of 4-wheelers has hiked up by 2.70%, 2-wheelers by 4.86% and 3-wheelers (auto-rickshaws and similar public transport vehicles) by 10.27% as compared to FY 2017-18.

  • EV

Not only are we growing in automobile production and manufacturing, we are also making our contributions for a greener world. The Electric Vehicle industry has been aided by engineers who are swift to adopt to the latest trends of AI, IoT, and Telematics. Our blog on India’s growth of the EV industry further sheds light on our work with electric vehicles.

How to hire engineers in India?

Often, businesses want to acquire Indian talent for remote work. They look into freelancing and outsourcing but later face roadblocks when these two ways of business expansion cause longevity issues. The answer to these problems lies in PEO.

A PEO (Professional Employer Organization) is an agency which acts as the on-paper employer of your Indian engineers. Because you don’t have a business formally registered in India, you cannot hire directly. This is where a PEO steps in to subvert all the legal and compliance complications of remote hiring. PEOs look after employee payroll services, HR, and employee benefits.

You enjoy complete control over all the aspects of these employees, from performance to incentives. A PEO just takes care of all the pain points of hiring. Contact Remunance to know how our PEO services can help you acquire the best engineering talent that your business deserves.
