Founded in 2012 with a single office in Sofia, Bulgaria and with a team of just a few people, today Scalefocus is recognized by renowned Forbes, Deloitte and Financial Times as one of the fastest-growing companies in Europe and as the most innovative organization in Bulgaria, making an impact with over 500 successful projects for more than 300 clients worldwide. For 10 years the Scalefocus team has grown to close to 800 people, spread across 4 countries. The company has 7 delivery locations in Bulgaria, North Macedonia and Turkey, and a sales office in the US.


The purpose of Scalefocus is to drive people’s success through technology and innovation: for its clients, for its team, and for the society.


Since the very beginning, the focus of the company has been on providing tailored software solutions and high added-value services that empower its clients to grow and have a successful business transformation. Deriving from a strong technology expertise built over the course of the years, today Scalefocus specializes in key industry verticals such as ICT, financial services and insurance, healthcare & life sciences, and energy and utilities. These sectors have laid the foundation for the success of the company and remain a focus going forward.


One of the highest priorities for Scalefocus is the development of its team and the creation of various opportunities for professional and personal growth. Leaders at Scalefocus are born naturally and grown from within the organization: this is unique for the culture and identity of the company. A major motivator for the Scalefocus team is the opportunity to be involved in complex and innovative projects for leading international businesses. The company also actively fosters knowledge-sharing and exchange of best practices across the organization through diverse initiatives – from mentorship programs, through technology and soft skill trainings, to sessions in various formats in which people discuss hot trends and best practices.


Driven by a give-back mentality, Scalefocus has also been dedicated to developing the local communities in the countries in which it operates. In partnership with leading universities and schools, as well as through its own free-of-charge Scalefocus Academy, it has been actively training future software engineers, thus helping to retain talent in Bulgaria and the region and supporting the growth of the entire local IT ecosystem. Equally important is the continuous involvement of the company throughout the years in pro-bono projects and socially impactful donation initiatives and causes.


“The vision of Scalefocus has always been for a leading, truly global organization which provides best-in-class software solutions and services for industry leaders around the world to help them grow, innovate and meet the challenges of tomorrow. We are actively working to create opportunities for professional development and growth for our colleagues who have been the key driver of the success of the company. We also aim to be the positive catalyst for the development of the entire IT ecosystem in Bulgaria and the countries in which we operate”, shares Ivan Ivanov, the CEO of Scalefocus.
