Bulgaria’s growing number of world class companies present exciting opportunities for professional growth. Given that more a third of entrepreneurs in Bulgaria are non-native, is a testament to the opportunities for starting & building companies in the country. Large multinational companies such as VMware, Financial Times, CISCO, Uber, SAP and many others, have sizeable R&D centres that are solving global problems.
