About the department of New Line Technologies in Bulgaria.

“A significant achievement for our entire company is the office of New Line Technologies in Bulgaria. The company entered the Bulgarian market in 2014. In the summer of 2021, we opened our office in the 2nd largest city in Bulgaria – Plovdiv. The team has already begun to form. “- Andrey Mazepa (General Director of New Line Technologies) talks about the branch.

“One of my first memories related to the company and the office was how I went into a completely empty room, which we had to equip for ourselves: I controlled the repair process, my colleagues and I chose furniture and assembled it with our own hands. Not because we could not hire craftsmen, but because we enjoyed such troubles.” – recalls Valeria Dmitrieva (Executive Office Coordinator BG NLT).

In June 2022, the department team moved to a new, larger office.

“We moved! The team was growing, and the previous office became overpopulated. We need space for insights. The new office is very good. There is enough space, and there are two balconies from which a stunning view of the mountains opens. It helps a lot to get distracted and relax for a couple of minutes during the working day.” – says Valeria with a smile.
