Hitomi Broadcast Appoints Recruits In Software Design And Implementation

News Image
Hitomi Broadcast is further strengthening its development capability with two new recruits in software design and implementation.

Thanuja Mallikarachchi has joined as a software design engineer, and Dylan Griffiths is now supporting the team as an engineering technician.

Mallikarachchi, who holds a doctorate in electronic engineering from the University of Surrey, joined Hitomi from Cardiff Metropolitan University, where he was a lecturer and researcher in data science and informatics. He is now bringing his skills to bear on new extensions to Hitomi’s MatchBox functionality.

"Anyone who runs a high-tech business today knows how hard it is to attract the best development talent," said Russell Johnson, broadcast director at Hitomi. "Recruiting Thanuja is a great coup for Hitomi, and we are already benefiting from his specialist knowledge and background."

Griffiths is studying Business and ICT part-time at college and has a lively interest in design. He is playing a major role in the continued development of iOS user interfaces for Hitomi, helping to develop an automated test rig to characterise the audio-video behaviour of every variant of iPhone and iPad.

"The skills shortage in our industry is a real concern for everyone, and the only responsible course of action is to identify likely talents, wherever they are, and to work with them to start and develop their careers," Johnson added. "Dylan is a very capable young man, and for Hitomi it is a win-win: we get creative and innovative design, and at the same time we can help develop the next generation of engineers for the good of the whole industry."
