FinTech marketing specialist makes raft of new hires
Birmingham-based global FinTech and digital marketing specialist PM Connect has recruited four developers and promoted three long-serving members of staff as part of a restructure.
New CTO Sanjay Mistry, who joined the company in June, has been quick to bolster the company’s technical resources, which now sits at 23 people.
The core of the tech team operates out of PM Connect’s Birmingham headquarters but technology staff have been added in both South Africa and Portugal to match its global reach.
Peter Colquhoun joins the newly named Operations Performance team as a back-end developer, Lisbon-based Hugo Camilo is welcomed as a nearshore salesforce developer, Tariqur Rahman has been recruited as a core-services developer, and Jakub Kozlowksi joins as a software developer in the company’s product team.
The business has also welcomed product manager, Harprit Badyal, to help strengthen its integration and core platform roadmaps.
Alongside the recruitment, George Walker has been promoted to operations performance team lead and Shaun Whalen-Smith to product team lead, while Harry Perry has also been promoted to senior QA tester.
Mistry said: “I said when I joined PM Connect that we have a top development team, built by my predecessor, Andrew Robins. The tech is strong, and the people are of high calibre. We needed to take this further and that starts by restructuring and strengthening resources where demand is highest. With Peter, Hugo, Tariqur, Jakub and Harprit joining us – that is exactly what we’re doing.
“I’d also like to congratulate both Shaun and George for their well-earned promotions to leadership positions, and Harry for his promotion, too.
“Learning and progression should be at the heart of PM Connect’s culture.
“It’s such an exciting time for PM Connect as we look to scale in the next two years. The world-leading brands we have coming on board, the huge potential in Africa, and the growth opportunities in the rest of the world. We are building something special and having an international development team is central to that. Watch this space.”
PM Connect’s partners now include sporting giants, such as the NBA and WWE, alongside the biggest mobile groups in the world including Vodafone, Orange, MTN and O2, driving growth across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
