In Hungary currently 1400+ IT Engineers help the world’s leading companies imagine, design, engineer and deliver software that changes the world. We are in the heartbeat of EPAM, running a large scale of projects and technologies – which provides long-term international career path, travelling and even relocation opportunities for our colleagues.

We believe that the team you build is the company you build. Our offices are digital laboratories. Our clients are major global brands. We’re always looking for talented teammates. Think you’ve got what it takes?


Currently we are looking for a Senior Mechanical Engineer for our Budapest office to make the team even stronger.


Our global client is developing a new, state of-the-art of automation equipment system that will improve access to services critical to people.

This new system targets a complicated industry—the production of something custom for each small-quantity order that requires passing delicate parts through a unique set of processing steps at different machines. With existing technology, orchestrating all of the machines and the movement of parts between them is a huge challenge.

After years working on this problem, the client has partnered with EPAM-Continuum engineers in the United States, through which we've developed a new prototype system to cleverly address this complexity with an automation solution. We need your help finishing the design and getting it into production. In particular, we'll be focused on two components of the factory:
- A 3-axis system which precisely picks up and moves parts
- A high throughput transportation mechanism that can handle the movement of many parts between many machines simultaneously

Our involvement in the project is growing and we are using this opportunity to expand our team to Belarus and Switzerland.


- Your skills demonstrate a broad base of practical knowledge, but you have the ability to ‘go theoretical’ to attain the necessary results;
- You are curious and build knowledge in new technologies, industries and business models deeply and quickly;
- You learn and adapt with creativity. You are energetic and passionate about solving problems and may even lead others to innovate;
- You are passionate about the big picture. You know how to design and build for context and may be able to guide a team to design for system wide constraints;
