Company taking a slow and careful approach to growth

Mediatech Solutions has big recruitment plans, although the firm isn't going to be rushed into filling positions for the sake of it.

The company has just launched a major recruitment drive, but executive director Daniel Graetzer said that doesn't necessarily mean the company is in a hurry to fill the vacancies.

He told TotallyGaming.com: “Our recruitment strategy is to grow slowly and carefully. Culture is so important for us; our teams are selected and recruited to ensure that we maintain our strong company culture and mix of experiences, backgrounds and skills.”

The omni-channel gaming platform supplier is looking to fill a number of technical positions after joining forces with new partners in new markets.

The new employees will work on Mediatech’s core product line, which is a suite of API driven PaaS services built in the latest technologies and incubated by industry-leading engineering and product teams.

Graetzer continued: “We have launched this recruitment drive due to the rapid growth of the business of late, which has seen our geographical reach extend with new partners all over the world.

“In order to continue offering a world-class service to our customers, we need to add more talent to our team in key technical roles. It is a really exciting time for the company and our employees, and we look forward to welcoming new recruits over the coming months.”

Despite the global outlook of the company, the majority of the new roles will be in Mediatech’s Spanish offices. “Our core Spanish offices are in Madrid and Ciudad Real. Madrid is an amazing city for expats due to the amazing cost of living, quality of life and culture (food, arts, events, night life, etc).

“Unfortunately, many people think Barcelona is the heart of Spain, but there are people like myself that try Madrid only to find that it really is one of Europe’s greatest cities. Madrid is becoming a hub for successful start-ups and technology companies and we are proud to be a part of the change.”

Graetzer also added that experience of the gambling industry was not a pre-requisite for employment. He said: “Gambling experience isn’t at all necessary, but of course it helps – or at least an interest in it. We need smart, enthusiastic and friendly people who want to learn and grow in a rapidly growing and innovating industry, driven by technology.”

Totally Gaming says: “Given the scale of industry consolidation this year, there is a lot of talent on the job market, making Mediatech’s recruitment drive a timely intervention. While Mediatech is in no rush to fill the roles, they could well be filled quickly.”
