BlinkMobile Interactive expands development team
Australian Platform-as-a Service provider, BlinkMobile Interactive, continues to develop its business by adding Rachel Hughes and Ashish Patel to its development team.
The new appointees will work towards enabling the rapid development and deployment of the company’s mobile business applications.
Hughes and Patel will be based at BlinkMobile’s head office in Kariong, NSW. The move expands the total development group to six – in what has been a period of rapid growth for the Central Coast based company.
Hughes joins BlinkMobile with six years’ experience in web design and programming. She previously owned her own company, 1300 4 Web Design. Prior to this, Hughes worked for Eyes Wide Ope.
Before joining BlinkMobile, Patel spent five years in the IT industry working in India and was a web developer at the Australian Migrant Coaching Centre.
Opmantek software founder returns to his roots
Open source software company, Opmantek, has signed a deal to see the founder of its Network Management Information System (NMIS), Keith Sinclair, join the business as the company’s chief technology officer.
Sinclair will be based in the company’s Gold Coast office, where he will be working directly with its major customers and hands-on in further developing NMIS.
He will maintain oversight of Opmantek's technical direction, activities and all future development and consulting resources. His first priority going forward will be the release of the new NMIS v8 community product and the streamlining of the Opmantek Internet distribution systems.
Sinclair will be working closely with Opmantek CEO, Danny Maher, to outline and prioritise the company’s product development undertakings and productions.
Sinclair previously worked for Cisco Systems.
“The major outcome of this will be a determination of metrics to measure our development activities, creation of our community, commercial development and support policy and a focused list of potential new commercial modules to be circulated to our user base,” Maher added.
