Cultivating Client Success:
Delivering Better Outcomes with Bulgarian IT Experts
Phoenix, AZ, Oct 18, 2022 – DIGITANITY. Talent is everywhere if you know where to look. At Digitanity, we’re committed to helping clients succeed by recruiting top talent worldwide.
One country on the rise is Bulgaria. IT engineers from Bulgaria aren’t just on par with their international counterparts — in many cases, they outpace other experts. Here’s how bringing in Bulgarian IT can help deliver better outcomes.
Bulgaria by the Numbers
The IT industry in Bulgaria is growing.
According to data from the Bulgarian Association of Software Companies (BASSCOM), while the national GDP saw a 5.5% drop in 2020, the software sector saw a 10% boost. The country is now home to more than 10,000 information and communication technology (ICT) companies, and as noted by U.S. International Trade Administration, 70% of these companies are only exporting their services, making them an ideal option for recruitment both nearby and offshore.
Given its status as an EU member, meanwhile, Bulgarian IT teams are well-versed in privacy and data control legislation, such as GDPR, to help companies make the most of their technology investments. In fact, after 10 years of membership, Bulgaria now has the EU’s top-performing ICT sector.
How Bulgarian IT Experts Can Help Your Company
With a long history in IT and communications, Bulgaria has one of the strongest and most stable IT sectors in the EU. This means that leveraging talent from Bulgaria offers confidence that staff won’t abruptly “churn” — instead, these experts are in it for the long haul.
What’s more, the Bulgarian IT sector has seen steady growth since 2010. Data shows that fixed broadband connections are available in 95% of Bulgarian households, and Bulgarians are the most intensive users of video calls across the EU. For global organizations, this combination bodes well. Bulgarian IT experts are both equipped with the technology infrastructure necessary to provide top-tier remote support and service, and among the most proficient video-call users worldwide, in turn helping streamline the remote work process.
It’s also worth noting that in an exception to the historic trend, 35% of people in Bulgaria’s IT sector are women. Not only are these female IT specialists some of the best in the world, but offshore or nearby recruitment from Bulgaria makes it easier for companies to meet evolving diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives that align with evolving customer expectations.
