[Sofia, May 12, 2022]. Ciklum, a global digital product development and digital services company, has opened a new delivery hub in Bulgaria. The development centre in Sofia expands the company's presence in Eastern Europe, known for its strong IT potential, and will expand the pool of available IT talent to Ciklum’s clients.
“Eastern Europe talent is a key cornerstone in the global digital solutions and services market. We know that from our experience in Ukraine, Poland, Czechia, Slovakia and Romania. The IT industry in Bulgaria is growing at double digits – and I think our 20 years of experience in developing and nurturing talent in this field will support this dynamic,” said Kulraj Smagh, CEO of Ciklum.
The new office has opened in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, and employs more than a hundred professionals. The company has ambitious plans to accelerate hiring of local professionals and also offer jobs to Ukrainians who have been forced to temporarily leave their homes and move to safer locations.
Ciklum is convinced that our expertise in working with cross-cultural digital development teams, in hybrid remote models with a focus on Eastern European talent, will be a foundation for success in Bulgaria. The company expects its centre in Bulgaria to hire talent throughout the country and provide the opportunity to several hundreds of tech professionals to realise their potential by the end of the year, through being part of the Ciklum family.
“The demand for digital products does not stop growing. We clearly see that Eastern Europe and, in particular, Bulgaria, has tremendous potential to succeed in this market. As a global company, we create opportunities for local talents to join international projects,” added Alexander Bowditch, VP, Strategy and Operations, at Ciklum.
Last year, Ciklum acquired CN Group, a Czech-based software developer, and now continues to strengthen its position in the international market.
