Apart from the Sofia HQ and the two newly opened offices, the company is present in another 7 countries – Australia, Ghana, Egypt, India, Kenya, Mexico, and The Philippines.
“We chose Varna as a strategic location for our next Bulgarian office. The overall employment rate in 2015 there was 68,4%.

She explained that the company is looking for highly motivated software developers and QA specialists who want to advance their career in a dynamic business environment. The team in Varna will work together with the HQ in Sofia on global projects for banks, telecoms, microfinancing organizations, fintech companies and many more.
During the grand opening of the Varna office, the company also discussed partnership opportunities with local universities.
