Asith Rajapakse

Specialist Software Consultant (C/C++, Embedded, Python)


Asith is part of the Software team at Projectus, he specialises in delivering C/C++, Embedded and Python candidates to cutting-edge software organisations. Having originated in specialising within highly regulated industries, Asith is now a mission to be the figurehead for the C/C++ and Python market in Switzerland and expand his reach in order to provide the best talent, with the widest scope of opportunities possible.

Background & Education

Asith initially began his professional journey in the Biomedical world having achieved a Bachelor’s Degree in Biomedical Science.

After a short stint in the laboratory, he soon discovered his passion was more inclined to a people-facing role. Despite his interest in science and technology still standing strong, Asith wanted to expand his skillset and develop in novel areas, which led him into the world of medical technology consultancy.

Asith began his recruitment consultancy journey specialising in C/C++ and Embedded technologies in the DACH region, primarily focusing on Germany. He has continued this momentum after joining Projectus Consulting having achieved success in the DACH and US markets. After strongly establishing himself in the Swiss market, he has chosen to focus his efforts on this region to be the market leader for technology recruitment.


Asith is a science and technology enthusiast. At Projectus, he specialises in the Software market to deliver C/C++, Embedded and Python experts to innovative and disruptive software companies.

Asith’s specialist areas include: Software, Firmware, Electronics, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Computer Vision, Data Science, Image Processing, Medical Imaging (MRI, CT, PET, X-Ray, Ultrasound) and Algorithm Development.

Personal Life

Being born in Oman with Sri Lankan roots and British nationality; Asith has always had a deep interest in different cultures and how they interact around the world. This is reflected by his travels throughout his years studying followed by an extended stay in Asia where he explored his native land of Sri Lanka. This further develops with his love for food and the weird-and-wonderful endless combinations that the world has to offer.

Outside of work, Asith is an avid fan of music, fashion, art, and travel. Throughout his late teens and early twenties, Asith established his own small business to sell rare-to-find garments and shoes; something he has been very passionate about and still does to this day.

Alongside this, Asith enjoys listening and creating music via production software; using a keyboard to emulate a range of instruments. He has a former background of playing bass and acoustic guitar.

Asith’s interest in science & technology expands past his professional parameters, during the COVID period; he revisited Python development after having encountered the language in his studies. He continues to build on his existing knowledge base in order to really understand his clients and candidate’s needs.
