Thomas Jensen, CEO at Milestone Systems, speaks about the past year and what’s ahead for the company
At the start of the new year Milestone Systems’ CEO Thomas Jensen met with Capital to talk about what was the past year like for the company, what lies ahead and also about the role of the team in the Bulgarian office.
Asked about the role of the team based in Sofia he said:
“It’s central. We have three main offices. The first one is in Copenhagen, where the company was founded 25 years ago. Soon after it was realized that if the company is to create software for the entire world it cannot be done from one location. This is why Sofia became our second software development hub. A big part of our software is being developed here. Three years ago, we came to the conclusion that it’s becoming difficult to hire new talent in Sofia as well and so we founded an office in Barcelona. So right now, we have this Copenhagen – Sofia – Barcelona triangle. Sofia is particularly important in it, because more than half of our software developers are located here.”
Milestone Systems develops software for cameras and video surveillance systems. The company is based in Copenhagen, Denmark, and was founded in 1998. In total, the company employs about 1,200 people, of which 204 are based in Bulgaria as of October 2022, mostly software developers.
