Another 20th anniversary!

Last year we celebrated Grafixoft`s 20th birthday. It has been an amazing journey through the years – starting with less than five people in a small office space that felt too much like home to now more than 100 people in two different locations. This will not be possible without the 3 stable pillars keeping us standing over the years – our people, our management and our partners.
On 11th October we celebrated another anniversary – 20 years partnership with Retain International. We gathered all colleagues in Metropolitan Hotel where we have presentation about the partnership, the history and the product. 20 years in few slides – it was amazing.
We started working with Retain in September 1999. The team then was a handful of people and no one would have believed that 20 years later same people will be still working for Retain with the small difference that they are now leading a team of almost 50 developers and QAs.
We want to say big thank you to the people who are part of Retain Development Team for being responsible for such a long-lasting and fruitful partnership and being part of something this big that is changing lives every day.

 

Campus X, we are coming!

Is there a working place where you would enjoy spending your eight working hours? A place that gives you all the comforts of your daily routine and much more. A place that allows your creativity to flourish and helps you surpass yourself day after day? Yes, there is and we have found it.

Soon we are going to celebrate something big because we will hire the employee number 100.
The growth of the company exceeded our own expectations, but with them came the need to expand the office again. That’s why part of Grafixoft`s team will soon join the Campus X community. We are sure that they will make new friends, have good memories and continue to work as they have done so far – with pleasure.

The choice of the location was not difficult because over 20% of the company’s current employees have graduated Telerik Academy. It is not easy for us to “split up” with our colleagues, but we know that they will feel good on Campus X. The good location and office space and the nice atmosphere are things that are valuable to us and we believe that will help our colleagues feel as good as they have before.

Grafixoft will take part in the first IT Roadshow in UK

In June Grafixoft will be part of an IT delegation from Bulgaria that will visit UK in order to create business opportunities between Bulgarian and British companies. The initiative behind the Roadshow comes from BBBA (British Bulgarian Business Association) and its main aim is to promote our country as an outsourcing destination.

So far, 14 IT companies, including Grafixoft, will participate. An eventful programme has been developed, with focus on networking and presentation activities, and participation in two big international events – London Tech Week and International Business Festival in Liverpool.

The delegation will be promoted among different UK parties, which will have the opportunity to book 1-to-1 meetings with the Bulgarian participants.

There will be a unique chance to meet the representatives of the Bulgarian IT Hub during the Bulgarian IT Delegation Embassy Reception.

Telerik Academy Alpha Visit

On Friday, 3rd November, the new Alpha ninjas from Telerik Academy visited Grafixoft office. They were divided in groups and each group had an attendant from Grafixoft who guided them through the office. That way each group had the opportunity to take a closer look on the work process in each department and to feel the atmosphere in the company. We received interesting questions that provoke good discussions. It was a complete pleasure to have in our office such young motivated individuals ready to explore the IT world. Good luck, ninjas!

 

Team Building 2013

June, 2013 | Ribarica, Bulgaria

Our annual team building took place in the first weekend of June. We spent two lovely days in one of the most beautiful parts of the Balkan Mountains – Ribarica, Teteven. Grafixoft’s team enjoyed the magnificent nature and spacious views, and of course the funny teamwork and friendly atmosphere. We had really good time with the team building activities and once again gave a deeper meaning of “TEAM”.
