Konstantin Chorbadziyski, Head of Operations, on the importance of agility and "technical tickler"
Many companies offer software development, but few can compare the quality of their service to Godel Technologies. The multinational company made its trademark the flexible solutions, the happy talents and the satisfied clients. In 2021, the company arrived in Bulgaria. We are talking to the Head of Operations of Godel Sofia, Konstantin Chorbadziyski.
Agility methodology is one of Godel's priorities. How do you apply it?
In Agile, tasks are broken down into smaller parts, with minimal planning and without affecting the project's long-term planning. This is necessary from the point of view of the rapidly changing environment.
We, at Godel, understand our partners' wishes and demands. Initially, they have one idea on the final software product, but during the development of the technological solution, the original idea undergoes all types of changes. Agile methodology is a way of thinking – to not be afraid of change. Therefore, we try to teach it to each of our colleagues. We achieve this with trainings and conversations with our Agile Delivery Coordinators.
What are the tasks of Godel's Bulgaria-based team?
Godel has different clients, where specialists from different locations work. This gives us the freedom to form a team with specialists from different countries.
At this stage, Godel Sofia talents participate mainly in projects in the e-commerce, energetic and fintech industries.
What are the most exciting projects that Godel's Bulgaria team has worked on?
At Godel, we have a policy to regularly ask our colleagues how they feel in the company, what they think about the project they are working on, etc. I am happy to say that according to these surveys, the talents in the Bulgarian team find the so-called technical tickler in their work and this motivates them. If you're asking me what I mean by "tech tickling", that's a term I use a lot. For me, "tech tickling" is what makes work interesting from a technical point of view. If a programmer does not find it in his project, he loses his motivation. Then the project becomes "boring" and the work becomes routine.
Sometimes it is difficult to provide each colleague with an interesting project, because each of them has diverse interests. Some like to work on e-commerce projects, others on projects in the fintech industry, others – something else.
But we, at Godel, always try to get closer to the technical interests of each and every one of our colleagues. Therefore, I would say that every single project that my colleagues from Bulgaria are working on is interesting and challenging.
