“In search of the perfect team” – That’s how Forbes Bulgaria titled an article in their latest issue dedicated to Motion Software CEO, our very own – Christo Peev. It is part of Forbes Bulgaria’s “30 under 30” campaign, highlighting the achievements of Bulgaria’s brightest young entrepreneurs. In this post, we are looking at some of the article’s key points.
Forbes Bulgaria – 30 Under 30
“Motion Software was founded by Christo Peev as a tool to connect Bulgarian IT specialists with international companies. And now, he is planning on taking the company’s reach to the entire European Union.
Motion Software’s office on Sofronii Vrachanski str in Sofia is empty. It’s only the company’s founder, Christo Peev that’s there. The reason is not just the pandemic. Peev is a fan of the idea that one can work anywhere, without having to be present in a particular building. It’s no surprise that many of his colleagues share the same view.
While many businesses were forced to find a way to work remotely because of the coronavirus crisis, this idea is strongly featured in Motion Software’s core culture from the very beginning. The company started operating in late 2015. Among its clients are international companies without an office or any other infrastructure in the country, seeking to hire foreign specialists. Motion Software breaks down these barriers for them and facilitates the process of legally hiring talented digital specialists. This way their clients would save time and money while keeping their employees secure. “
“From the very beginning, Christo Peev’s idea is for Motion Software to be a company in which employees can work wherever and whenever they want. “
“Motion Software works mainly with software companies and some of the world’s largest investment banks. The company is growing organically. Every year it doubles its team and revenue. At the moment the active consultants are more than 70 while the company has over 500 candidates that could be hired by its clients. The company’s main markets are the USA, UK and Switzerland. “
Forbes Bulgaria also put an emphasis on Christo Peev’s professional background, sharing his experience at the University of Bath, through his thoughts on “working 9 to 5” as a software engineer and his journey to success. A breakthrough moment for him was the participation in a startup challenge in Lisbon. It led to him visiting the offices of giants like Amazon, Facebook, Google, Tesla, and others which ended up being the inspiration for Motion Software’s creation.
Motion Software – The Journey
“At first Christo Peev decided that the company won’t be developing its own products. However, later, software used in visualization and large data processing was created. Blockchain, finance, and applications in the field of healthcare followed. Currently, Motion Software is working on the implementation of a platform that allows small and large companies to hire vetted software specialists in an automated way. At the same time, the company offers premium employment security, high-quality workspaces, equipment, social benefits, community, training, and education to all specialists in the network. After its launch the company expects its revenue to double every three months. “
The last page of the article is dedicated to the company’s policy to take an active part in the education of up and coming talent and to also open the door to those who might not have equal opportunities in today’s labour market through collaborations with SoftUni and JAMBA. After completing a training camp the best candidates have the opportunity to work at the company.
Еntrepreneurship is something that Motion Software encourages within its community by motivating its own people to always bring interesting ideas to the table. Concepts that Motion Software can help with by investing or helping communicate the ideas to potential investors and mentors.
“It is within the company’s values that true success is not measured by numbers. It’s the progress and individual growth of each member of the Motion community that’s the key indicator.” – Christo Peev, CEO of Motion Software
