FactoryFix, a recruiting platform that connects manufacturers to vetted, skilled workers, was recently featured in Robotics Tomorrow magazine. Manufacturing Journalist, Thomas R. Cutler interviewed Patrick O’Rahilly, CEO and Founder of FactoryFix about the demand for robotics engineers. Read the full article here.
O’Rahilly suggested the responsibilities and duties in robotics vary extensively. The distinct functions require precision in selecting candidates with needed skills. Throwing a wide net to attract new quality staff is a waste of time that small manufacturers can ill afford.
Connected factory workers leverage various digital tools and data management techniques to improve and integrate their interactions with both physical and virtual surroundings while improving decision accuracy, proliferating knowledge, and lessening variability.
O’Rahilly insisted, “One day without a qualified professional robotics engineer on the manufacturing plant floor can be disastrous. FactoryFix has accumulated and continues to grow the largest database of candidates who each have unique expertise in performing problem identification, resolution, and continuous improvement.”
Robotics Tomorrow is an online trade magazine featuring products, companies, news, articles, and events for the advanced manufacturing, factory automation, and 3D printing industries.
FactoryFix’s purpose is two-fold: 1) to help companies with hiring by providing access to a unique talent pool, vetting applicants, providing salary insights, generating job listings, and other tools to streamline the process. 2) It also allows job seekers to create profiles to easily find employers that fit their skill-sets, thus maximizing their earning potential.
Patrick O’Rahilly, Founder of FactoryFix, explains, “The result is a tremendous time and costs savings when compared to hiring through a traditional staffing agency or job board. Both have their advantages, but staffing firms are expensive, and job boards require a lot of time and effort to sift through unqualified candidates. The FactoryFix platform takes the best of each and combines it into a turn-key hiring solution made exclusively for this industry.”
Companies that engage in an annual subscription are guaranteed qualified workers for their open positions. Some of the most popular jobs on FactoryFix include operator, maintenance, welding, machining, and automation roles.

The results are clear, FactoryFix customers are benefiting from:
- At least 50% reduction in overall cost per hire
- 4 times faster to fill positions than traditional staffing
- 10 times more qualified candidates than posting on a job board
