  • Milen Kovachev

    Founder

    Milen is a senior .NET developer and one of the founders of Nop-Templates.com. His obligations to the company have seen him deal mostly with sales and business development, which he takes on with the kind of persistence and pedantic precision you can only learn from years in the development field. His passion for the work and the company can only be compared to the same he has for his snowboard. It was his old childhood business idea for a board shop, which brought his attention to nopCommerce and evolved into what Nop-Templates.com is today. In his free time, Milen absolutely loves going out in the mountains with his board, bike or just on foot. When not on the move he loves playing the guitar, especially acoustic covers of his favorite old-time punk and ska bands, tunes yet to be appreciated by his fellow colleagues.

  • Rayna Angelova

    Sales & Marketing

    Rayna has been working in advertising before joining forces with our team. She is the person behind content creation, product, and brand marketing. Soon after starting in the company Rayna did what could not be achieved by this motley crew of developers – maintaining order and discipline and making sure that every deadline is being met. As a result, the Quake 3 Arena tournaments are now being played only once or twice a month. In her dreams, she gets relocated and working for the company from a sunny beach, somewhere on a deserted island far away in the ocean sipping rum and enjoying the silence.

  • Nikola Dragiev

    Front-end developer

    Niki started as a Content & IT Facilitator for the company back in 2013. It took him only a few months to realize that he is absolutely passionate about front-end development. Without thinking twice, he embarked on the mission to officially get a degree in this field from the brand new Software University in Sofia. It took him only a couple of years of hard work to become a valuable member of our front-end development team and we are very proud of his professional growth. When Niki started in the company he was only 22 and he loved spending most of his free time going out with friends and partying. Back then his biggest challenge at work was to arrive on time in the morning for the Scrum meeting. Not much has changed since then. By now the rest of the team has accepted the fact that Niki is not a morning person. Yet, they never miss the chance to joke that being late has become part of his job description.

  • Valentin Kirov

He is one of our valuable front-end developers and someone who is not afraid to experiment. He has a bachelor degree in software engineering and a master degree in web design but for him, the number of degrees is not what makes a person successful.
