Weybridge, Surrey, UK , 1 March 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.

With experience in both Front-End and Back-End technologies utilising C#, .Net & REST, Joe will add strength to the Oceans Platform team.
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.

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.
