As the biggest software company, ScaleFocus, is proudly stepping in North Macedonia and investing in the opening of a development center in the capital, Skopje.

Over the next few years, we are planning to create more than 300 jobs for software professionals, seeking challenging work in international projects for clients worldwide. The company aims to offer an excellent environment for talent development as well as competitive pay.

One of the long-term goals of ScaleFocus is the sustainable growth and development of teams of professionals across Eastern Europe.

“The decision to invest in a new development center in Skopje was dictated by our successful collaboration with IT experts from Northern Macedonia, which has been going on for several years now.” said Plamen Tsekov, CEO of ScaleFocus.

Mr. Tsekov signed a formal state aid agreement with Zorica Apostolska, the Minister for Foreign Investment in Northern Macedonia.

The planned investment for the next 5 years is 45 mill EUR, with 2 million planned for the training and development of young talents.

“Our goal is to enable motivated IT professionals to work on exciting and challenging projects, in a dynamic environment and in an international team, without having to emigrate.” elaborated Mr. Tsekov.

The company will partner with local organizations, universities and companies, with the primary aim of developing and improving the entire IT ecosystem in Northern Macedonia.

ScaleFocus successfully managed to develop offices in the largest Bulgarian cities: Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna and Burgas and to help the development of IT communities. Stepping into northern Macedonia is the logical next step in our evolution.

The Government of Northern Macedonia and the Economic Trade Office of Bulgaria were actively involved and assisted in the whole process.

In 2019, we also started our ScaleFocus Academy, which already trains future IT and software experts in several Bulgarian cities. As a company, we also plan to continue and develop the initiative in Northern Macedonia.

ScaleFocus is the largest Bulgarian software company, with nearly 1000 employees and over 200 international clients on the Fortune 500 list worldwide. The company has a well-developed expertise in the field of digital transformations, e-governance and security and data protection, as well as building and maintaining the complete lifecycle of innovative software solutions. The company has sales offices in the USA, London, Munich and development centers in the major cities in Bulgaria: Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna, Burgas.
