VMware Bulgaria’s role on a global scale

In VMware Bulgaria, your contribution can create a lasting global impact. Since its establishment, VMware’s office in Bulgaria has become one of the key driving forces of the industry, employing a diverse team of nearly 800 world-class professionals (we are the largest IT employer in Bulgaria). Over the years VMware Bulgaria has transformed from a purely R&D facility to a multifunctional hub with product, revenue generating professional services, and business operations teams and is now one of the three core strategic sites for VMware globally and the largest one in EMEA.

Major milestones of the site’s development are the creation of a Professional Services Center of Excellence and an Innovation lab focused on projects in the fields of Open source, Internet of things and Machine learning.

Pat Gelsinger, CEO of VMware, acknowledged the instrumental role of the Bulgarian operations in the global VMware strategy during his visit in Bulgaria:

“Our operations in Bulgaria are a vital part of our ability to develop software and services that allow our customers to move faster, embrace new business models, and compete more effectively. The past decade has shown VMware Bulgaria has been on the edge of delivering innovative technology and is helping our customers through the digital transformation of their businesses. We are committed to a continuous investment in the region. I’m truly excited about what this team will achieve in the future.”

Pat Gelsinger, CEO of VMware

EPIC2 Culture in Action

VMware Bulgaria’s progress as a site would not have been possible without an open and collaborative environment. The culture in Sofia is all about opportunity, passion, innovation, and seamless execution together.

There are numerous cases to illustrate how the innovative culture at VMware empowers people to achieve more. The Sofia site has seen many talented individuals who had a vision, took the initiative to pursue a new venture internally, brought good results and now, with the support of the leadership, are operating global teams that are bringing value to VMware customers worldwide.

Another aspect that is worth mentioning is the desire of our employees to give back to the communities that they live and work in and the care they show for the environment. Through the support of the VMware Foundation, employees join forces to making change happen.

A recent outstanding example of VMware’s great culture in action is the Carpool Sharing project.  A small team of engineers saw the opportunity to solve in a single move several key issues for the company while bringing extraordinary benefits to the environment. By initiating an internal car-sharing service with a fleet of 10 electric automobiles, they managed to overcome the problem with limited access to parking spaces and improved cross-team collaboration and limiting the carbon footprint of the organization.
