Thu, 19 Jun 2014On-demand television service YouView is hunting for talent to keep it at the cutting edge of TV technology.

The company wants to double the size of its technology team over the next 12 months by recruiting more than 50 developers, test engineers and project managers.

Head of HR Caroline Seton said: “YouView is entering an ambitious phase and, over the next year, we’ll be reaching out to the best talent to help us with product developments.”

The recruits will work with technology including IP-delivered video, HTML5 and cloud-based services across a wide range of devices. YouView uses open-source software in its boxes.

Engineering chief Piers Lomax said: “We’re looking for talented people who can bring new ideas to our tech teams and help create consumer devices, mobile apps and highly scalable network services.”

YouView is funded by seven shareholders – the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, BT, TalkTalk and Arqiva – to offer a catch-up and on-demand TV service that is now in seen in more than a million UK homes.

Earlier this week, YouView said it would appeal against a high court ruling that its name infringed the YourView trademark of business-to-business telecoms service provider Total.
