Pebble adds to its UK team with new appointments

March 2, 2022

Pebble, the leading automation, content management, and integrated channel specialist, is pleased to announce a host of new staff member appointments to its UK team. The new hires come at a time that sees Pebble sustain its strong growth trajectory going into 2022 – the company’s most recent trading update announced an increase in revenue of approximately 26% compared to the 2020 result, with orders up 75% at £13.7m.

Buoyed by a robust 2021 performance, Pebble continues to invest heavily in its R&D efforts and has ramped up recruitment accordingly to support and amplify the development of new solutions for broadcasters as they transition from traditional broadcast infrastructure to more flexible IP-based technologies. The new recruits join Pebble’s R&D division, where they will be part of the team working on Oceans, Pebble’s next-generation, service-orientated hybrid technology platform built for cloud and on-prem use.

Diogo Costa joins the UK team from Portugal, where he developed his programming skills in Full Stack Web Development and microservices across a number of industries. As Senior Software Developer, Diogo is part of the expanding Oceans team under the stewardship of Pebble’s R&D Technical Lead Edmund Lewry.

Joe Warren joins in the role of Software Developer, after an eight-year career at Peak Analysis & Automation, where he has been developing laboratory software for use in the pharmaceuticals industry. With experience in both Front-End and Back-End technologies utilizing C#, .Net & REST, Joe will add strength to the Oceans Platform team.

Calum Hamilton takes the role of Developer for the Oceans Orchestration team. Previously at Citrus-Lime, he gained knowledge in C#, Javascript, and ASP.NET, whilst utilizing an Agile approach. Prior to this Calum gained a 1st from Edinburgh Napier University and acted as a demonstrator for two years.

Also joining the Oceans team as Senior Software Developers are Sanjeeb Ojha and Tanvir Kazi. Sanjeeb takes on the role after a 10-year career at Moog, where he has developed his skills in C#, .NET and many other technologies. In addition, Sanjeeb is an experienced Scrum Master in DevOps CI/CD, with expertise in working on public cloud platforms. Tanvir brings 15 years of experience to his role – he spent five years in the clinical research medical sector developing his skills in C#, WPF, and many other technologies, and a decade in industrial sectors including metrology instruments and security.

With extensive administrative experience in the private and hospitality sector under her belt, Carrie Marshall joins Pebble’s UK team as Operations Administrator to support the ongoing growth of the company.

Peter Mayhead, CEO at Pebble said, “As broadcast industry operations continue to transition to IP, we are seeing broadcasters and operators exploring ways of working in the cloud that make practical and financial sense. It’s an opportunity for Pebble to offer the kind of technology and support that meets this need. That is why we’re delighted to welcome Diogo, Joe, Calum, Sanjeeb, Tanvir, and Carrie whose expertise and capabilities further bolster our amazing Pebble team.”
