Agricultural Engineer

At Sequence, we have long worked in the agricultural engineering sector and clearly know the vital role it has in the engineering field.  This specialty engineering discipline applies engineering science and technology to agricultural production and processing, and the efficient use of biological resources.  Because of this, they are also sometimes referred to as biological engineers.

Agricultural engineering is a complex field, combining the disciplines of animal biology, plant biology, and mechanical, civil and chemical engineering principles with knowledge of agricultural principles.  Like most of engineering, we have seen this branch emerge in the 20th century when the first curriculum in agricultural engineering was established at Iowa State University in 1905, followed by the founding of The American Society of Agricultural Engineers two years later, and now known as the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers.

Sequence: we know agricultural engineering. 

Sequence has been a leader recruiting and staffing agricultural engineers because we know and understand this discipline and the important component it is in the construction, engineering and environmental industries.  We have established ourselves as the premier recruiting and staffing firm committed to providing employment solutions to these major industries worldwide.

Agricultural engineers perform a variety of professional services and duties, such as planning, supervising and managing the building of dairy effluent schemes; design and manage complex irrigation projects; develop drainage, flood and water control systems; perform environmental impact assessments, interpret research results and implement relevant practices. They may also develop ways to conserve soil and water, and to improve the processing of agricultural, food, and biorenewable products.

Though a good many of agricultural engineers work in academia or government, many are employed by agricultural machinery, equipment and agricultural product processing manufacturers.  Thus, agricultural engineers design agricultural machinery, equipment, sensors, processes, and structures, such as those used for crop storage.  They also work in production, sales, management, research and development, or applied science.

Sequence will find you the right agricultural engineer the first time, every time.

With a long history working in the agricultural engineering sector, Sequence has developed an expertise unparalleled in the executive recruiting and staffing industry.  We know and understand the technical and professional nuances of this field.  As a result, we have developed a team of highly experienced, skilled recruiters and staffing professionals with broad industry experience.  They know agricultural engineering.

Their expansive industry network means they know where to find you the finest talent and how to obtain the best and the brightest agricultural engineers for your organization.  At Sequence, our recruiting philosophy, methodology and recruiting practices adhere to the highest standards in the industry.  It is why we are able to carefully screen and present only the most qualified agricultural engineer candidates who are readily available to make a difference in your organization.

Trust Sequence with your HR requirements.

Our recruiters and staffing experts can meet all of your personnel needs, from filling individual agricultural engineer jobs to recruiting and staffing entire practice groups, for both small firms or for global engineering, construction and environmental corporations.

We recruit and staff executive, management, administrative and field-level personnel for temporary and temporary-to-permanent agricultural engineer jobs, and for direct-hire positions throughout the engineering sector worldwide.  We also offer short and long-term temporary contract placements, outplacement services, long-term recruiting in addition to contracting a full range of HR services.

With such a diversity of applications, there is a nearly endless list of engineering sub-specialties with which Sequence has experience. Many of these specialties are vital to the clients we serve and require highly skilled expertise in planning, design and execution.
