In his new role, Aiyadurai will oversee the research and development department at the studio, as well as continue to develop and expand the provider’s IT infrastructure and lead market planning and trends.
Aiyadurai joins Wizard Games after a spell as head of software engineering leads at Bigbank, prior to which he worked in a number of roles across several divisions of Derivco, part of the Microgaming Group that is now part of Games Global.
His other professional roles included lead software developer at Easy Computers, as well as software developer at both Commit Information Technology and Infosoft Baroda.
