Midas to recruit 20-plus engineers13 September 2010
The digital audio console manufacturer is in the process of doubling its R&D team less than six months after it was acquired by The Music Group in one of the most notable audio business stories of recent times.
The proposed doubling of Midas’s current engineering team is in line with the Music Group’s stated intention to invest substantially in product development.
Once recruited, the new hardware, software, DSP and FPGA design engineers will work out of locations in Kidderminster and Manchester, UK.
As reported by IE here, Midas and sister company Klark Teknik were sold to the Music Group – owner of the Behringer brand and other associated companies – in a deal signed on 8 December last year.
“I am incredibly excited about the way that we can now develop the company, thanks to the Music Group,” said John Oakley (pictured), managing director of Midas Klark Teknik. “We have already released a host of new products this year and the pace is about to increase. I want to hear from any R&D staff who would like to join us on our journey, particularly if they have experience of digital audio mixer design. We have vacancies for all types of skill and all levels of experience.”
Speaking to IE, Oakley said that the key R&D priority going forward would be the “accelerating development of Midas digital consoles”.
