Spiral out. Keep going.

Tsvetelin Gemedzhiev, Project Manager

My Story

My initial career plan was to develop in the human resources field as I graduated from Sofia University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and then a Master’s in Human Resource Management. But one of the inherent qualities of plans is that … they change 🙂 While recruiting for project and process-related positions in the IT area, I saw greater opportunities for development and decided to go for such a position myself. 7 years later, after managing and coordinating a variety of infrastructure and software development projects in one of the biggest IT companies in the world, I saw a new exciting opportunity for a Project Manager at Pontica. And here I am now 🙂 For the past 8 months, I’ve been part of the Mailjet’s IT team – one of the leading email service providers in the world, building a Project Manager role from scratch and helping with the prioritization and status visibility of some of the major projects within the company. Seeing how this product evolves every day is a unique and rewarding experience.

My Motivation

It’s really inspiring to be part of a team that grows together. And that is valid for both Pontica and Mailjet. I’m also motivated by the daily challenges that my work offers and the fact that I learn something new every day.

Tsvetelin after work

After work, I try to spend quality time with my better half and with good friends. I enjoy travelling and discovering new places and cultures. I’m also quite passionate about music – I love going to concerts, for me, there’s nothing like the energy and atmosphere of a good live show. I also started playing drums a few years ago and currently, we are creating our first songs with my band.
