  • 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

    Content & IT facilitator

    Niki has been working for Nop-Templates since April 2013. He is the person who takes care of everything those spoiled developers would not put their hands on: theme demos, video recording, hosting space and VPS setup, answering the support calls of our most devoted support call generation customers. Soon after he started in the company he got passionate about front-end development and recently has embarked on the mission to officially getting a degree in this field from the brand new Software University in Sofia. Being only 22 he is spending most of his spare time going out with friends and partying. That being said, it is not hard to imagine that his biggest challenge at work is to arrive on time in the morning for the Scrum meeting and then find spare money to buy the required reparation to the team: biscuits, chocolate or just a plain old bottle of Whisky.

  • Boriana Pesheva

    web design

    While doing her bachelor degree in economics Bori found her true vocation - web design. Since then being a web designer has been more than just a job for her. When asked to define her passion for web design, she simply says “I am finally doing something that makes me happy”. If I have to describe Bori in just a few words, I would say without hesitation that she is a person of opposites. She likes watching sci-fi movies and playing computer games as much as going shopping or choosing her outfit for the day. Bori does not have a car. She goes around on a motorcycle but always with a perfectly applied makeup. To complete the picture I would just point one more thing about Bori. She is a wonderful cook especially when it comes to baking cakes and cookies. It is no wonder that the whole team is excited when she is late for the scrum meeting in the morning. Our reward for her missing scrum always comes in the form of a freshly baked cake.
