Big ups for those two who were the best hosts in Plovdiv and Start Zagora. I had the pleasure to see how devoted they are to their work and also able to make everyone around feel good. They were also brilliant in helping the execution of the SiteGround|Best Employers 2017 internal campaign in both cities, so everyone felt a part of the celebrations, no matter how far from the mothership – Sofia was it.

The best team I have ever worked with! You guys rock! Credits and special thanks to Raya. You, my dear, deserve more than a candy 🙂 <3
Because you all have nerves of iron in dealing with the most common and sometimes strangest requests.
For his tremendous help with the Christmas party movie activity. He volunteered to help on the topic and thanks to his encyclopedic film knowledge you all might get to enjoy an extra special shot at the party. The rest is a surprise, but the important part is that some of it was made possible thanks to him! Man, you are something.
For always contacting the ops team right on-time with the correct amount of detail in order to have the problem solved.
For being the most devoted and selective contributor of the #ops … team
From the very beginning she has been the one to talk and ask about any concern I had/have. Always willing to help and advising for best next steps.
And not just for me, she is the connection of all the departments here in Spain and makes the best for all of them.
AND she prepares all the decorations for Halloween, Christmas, Thanks Giving and much more… making the office a great place to be in.
Ivan always goes over each ticket he gets that is escalated by me. He’s always eager to teach and always does so with utter confidence that I more than have the ability to do what he’s teaching me. Ivan always makes me feel like I’m smart enough to achieve whatever I wish to.
One word – PANCAKES. Thank you for the delicious breakfast that you prepare for us.
For actually being the best supervisor around 🙂
You’ve always guided me and helped me in a pinch, when it really matters. I’ve never felt pressured for results but always driven towards them thanks to the knowledge you provide me with, and I know that if s**t goes south, you’ll be there to make it right 🙂 so there’s that, which is nice.
Love working with you for the great spirit and attitude, especially in handling not so pleasant client cases. I appreciate your help with taking care of SiteGround Twitter account and having my back on answering questions about our service from Facebook
I’m very grateful for all the girls from this team who always readily step in to help sort out client issues and make the whole process very easy. Thank you!
I love you! You are ninjas and my personal heroes! No matter that is a simple question or a week old ticket, you are there! You never tried to kill me, when I visit you, you get me tea when I quit smoking (thanks, Niki Arabadzhiev). I want to say personal thank you to all of you, but I abuse (almost) all of you so the list will be long 😀 <3
Thank you for making me feel like I’m back home! <3 Even though I didn't know most of you, you accepted me in the team right away! Aaaanddd, I will name you now, yep, everyone! Thank you Adi, Sandro, Alex and Alex :), Mitko & Mitko, Dorch, Gabi, Glo, Hrisi, Iliyana, Vanka, Ivo, Krasi & Krasi, Kristiyan, Misha, Niki, Paco, Padre, Pesho, Stefan, Stelios, Tod, Viki! And special kisses for Mila & Ivo!
Every day they give their best trying to understand what a designer meant in his mockups. Special thanks to Deyan Yanakiev and Krasimir Chariyski.
Once again pure magic by devops!
I am not good with words, so thank you for your continuous mentoring and help.
The way you approach an issue, pay attention to details, and also the fact that you were the first to become an admin from the StZ office are truly inspirational. 🙂
Big Thank you for the perfect organization of the team building and all the events you have been responsible for, including the conferences, end of the year parties and so on 🙂
He heard me complain that I keep messing up on Spanish/Italian tickets by replying in English instead of translate — and then whipped up a tampermonkey script so that if I ever try to reply to a non-English ticket, a pop-up alert tells me to doublecheck myself. It was super thoughtful and helpful all in one.
Always willing to help, even if he is serving 5 chats at the time ,also really impressed by the amount of knowledge he has, and how much he had memorized the procedures to follow on our System
Deyan is very dependable. He is highly technical person but he also constantly establishes a feeling of teamwork, fair, open and collaborative environment. Deyan always speaks up in team meetings or directly to me and Jivko and provides a unique technical perspective on every potential obstacle, technical decision, planning matter, concern or on-going task. He explains in simple language any complex technical stuff or research output that may have affect on our planned tasks or requirements. As a result of the visibility and sincere explanations he provides, he has great contribution in building mutual respect and our productivity as a team.
They have to put up with all the crappy code we produce. Hell, I have hard time putting up with my own code sometimes and these guys do that every day!
Making sure that code actually works can many times be harder than actually writing the code, so than you guys for doing the hard work for us!
Keep up the great job!
(I am also sharing this so that they can keep inviting me to the Tuesday lunches ;))
I’ve only dreamed to have a job with a colleagues that will make me come everyday at work with joy. Now, since that became reality I cannot do anything, except to express my gratitude to them with this!
Big thanks to everyone and lets keep it that way !
Dream team has a new definition – Phone team! Guys, it’s an absolute pleasure to work with you. You, all, are what makes my day better.
It was an amazing year, but I am sure that 2018 will be even better. Wish you a Merry Christmas and really, really successful New Year!
Thank you for all the help, girls! I know how busy you are throughout the whole day and how valuable your time is. Still, you, all, are always here for us, when we need assistance with the billing stuff! Thanks again – Masha, Didi, Eva, Nat! СЪРЦЕ!
Well, the phone team won’t be the same without her. I am, personally, very thankful for working with her. Love you, Milichka! 🙂
I know that me and maybe some other colleagues abuse you every day on Slack but the truth is that you are always there for us. I cannot say how thankful I am for hearing “Of course I have a moment for you”. You are an important part of what we do so thank you all. P.S. Promise I won’t bother you so much in December, Merry Christmas 🙂
For being the best people you can ever work with, cannot dream of having better teammates. We work together and we have fun together, family is what I think it is <3 Thank you all for being who you are and doing what you do :)))
for teaching Dima, Kiro and me how to wakeboard !!
For being the best and the funniest travel buddy 😛 Although you can be an A** sometimes, we still love YOU much <3 Check here: https://ibb.co/hDTG7w
Mila & Ivaylo D.
The best Supervisor
Thank you for constantly being on the lookout for global issues and for swiftly resolving them. Most of all thank you for constantly having the backs of the entire support team!
You guys rock!
It is quite hard for me to pick just one win when talking about SiteGround. Still, if I have to choose I guess it would be the fact that this year SiteGround won the “Best Employer” award in Bulgaria for a second consecutive year. There are of course many reasons why that award should be given to SiteGround – a nice working environment, amazing colleagues, epic teambuildings, management that aims to make its employees happy and many others.
I do consider all of the above as wins and that is what makes SiteGround such a great company. It is a company that I am proud to be part of.
Dora is the ultimate most thoughtful presents giver !!!
There are of course many people who deserve a big thanks, however I believe that the idea is for everyone to make their pick, so there can be only one :).
Thank you Stan for introducing me to SiteGround, as without you I would not have started working here (or at the very best, I would have joined at a much later date). Your positive feedback, and love for the company made me consider it. Later on, the same thing happened when I considered changing departments, so basically you have helped me a lot in my career choices. Thanks for being such an awesome person, and for always striving to help everyone at any time. Thanks to you I am part of this great TEAM, and I really appreciate it :).
Thank you for your warm welcome. I feel like I’ve never left and I’m so grateful that I’m here again with you guys, surrounded by such funny and interesting people.
Nikolay is one of the mentees I had. Despite his young age I was impressed by his technical aptitude, calm demeanor and excellent customer handling. He has amazing potential and I can only graciously envy him that he is starting his career in the best suited company. Looking forward to his great future.
Thank you guys, this is all I need to say!!!!!!! We are an amazing team an we ROCK!
Being able to work with such a friendly, unite and inspiring team is a pleasure!
Special thanks to my mates – Mirko and Mattia – we started together and I love you everyday more.
I feel really lucky!
For the best technical knowledge in our “rookie” group, and also for the help and support at all times.
I want to thank you for the greatest Team Building of all times!
For being a good friend and for re-writing all Tutorials and KB articles all on his own + Educating the new AI to return proper results in the post ticket section.
Huge WIN for the stars in front of the camera: Svetoslav, Stelyan, Desi, Adelina, Ivaylo and (coming soon) Katerina, BUT ALSO for those behind the scenes: Zornitsa (!), Dimitar Dimitrov and Martin Stoev. Great job, you guys!
For being so patient and willing to help everyone at any time! He is always giving his heart and soul to inspire. It’s not easy to find a person to rely on so I guess he’s one of those unicorns left! Thank you being there for us 🙂
For being the best Team Lead one could ask for. Always actively engaging and giving 101% to help when approached. Constantly showing respectful, patient and positive attitude. You’re simply the best! Thank you 🙂
For being patient and understanding to the fact that I am a 24/7 PITA (pain in the …behind) and not willing to kill me for that 🙂
Being one of the most friendly and welcoming people I ever met, MIlena always took the time to explain, listen and help when I was dealing with financial tasks, no matter how tight her schedule was.
Thank you for the inspirational emails related to the football society in Zarata’s office. 🙂
I have no clue how you do it but every email brings a lot of smiles on our faces! 🙂
The Affiliate team came up with the idea of visiting a different type of restaurant/cuisine as a team every month and they extended the invitation to the whole Marketing team. It’s a great idea and I’m looking forward to it every time 🙂 🍣 🍤 🥟 🥠🍲🌮🍱
Just for being himself and mostly for being the spine of the dev team since there was a dev team. Thanks for everything – the beer, the shkembe chorba, the lambs for your anniversary, the dirty jokes and the non-dirty jokes and last, but not least – for being the best ever concert and beer drinking buddy. Love you ,man! 🙂
Bisser is one of the most helpful people there is ever! No matter how overwhelmed by current tasks he is, he’s always willing to help with a trouble you have.
Million thanks for being there and for picking me up from the bus stop in the mornings so I don’t freeze to death 😀
The SG Beach Fest Dream Team. From standing on a 3-meter ladder to fix the shells on the decoration to getting sunburned dragging a boat across the beach – you guys were so helpful and ready to do whatever we ask in preparation for the teambuilding this year! Massive Respect! And I miss talking to all of you on the walkie-talkies!
For the “zen” attitude every day – from the moment we step into the office, to the moment we leave – they are always there to greet and smile at you, no matter what. Ladies, you’re the best.
For being awesome! Super thorough, very patient and there when you need him (even after hours!) 🙂
Thank you for being so helpful and understanding and always finding a way to make me smile even when I want to burn things and kill people! I am truly thankful and so happy to have you as a Teamleader! You rock! :success:
For being so, so helpful and doing double the work every night shift we had together just to help a lost soul in need. You’re awesome! Truly appreciate it!
For being the best manager ever.
The colleague which is always there when you need him and the one that can always find a way on how to fix any problem related to our services.
The SiteGround beach fest was epic. And the idea for the two bars per music preferences was super cool. It showed that personal touch that even the greatest headliner cannot beat!
Behind the scenes, Maya is one of the people who silently contributes to making the SiteGround parties happen. Maya worked from airports, had endless calls with Events team during an important conference and stayed late in the evening to get the Christmas party contracts and negotiations right, on time and in best interest for us. Thank you, Maya!
I love it when Dani and I work on a design task and she starts explaining me how something is done in Photoshop. She showed me bunch of tips and tricks and shared so many insights about elements, colours, proportions, interactions. This has helped me in getting her perspective better and understanding the unknown world of design and UX.
Zhivko was the very first person I started working with after joining SiteGround. As a newbie it felt great to collaborate with someone who never said that something cannot be done. Right from the beginning of the email project, we both faced areas, tools and technologies for the first time. And Zhivko took the challenge to learn a number of new things, the biggest one of which is programming in Go. It is inspiring to work with someone who learns new things so quickly. It is even more inspiring to see Zhivko’s dedication in becoming a Go developer, his motivation in improving his skills and knowledge and his focus on delivering well written code.
The cPanel master! Always ready to help with revealing some шано trick that would resolve odd issues!
Being the best team leader a person can ask for
Dedication of the whole team to bring awesome support and new knowledge to the customer attention. The new colleagues who learn so fast and starts to help us, almost from the beginning of their experience in SG. New automated solutions in help of all of SG team, mainly the automated verification procedure, thanks to all of you. The past year we succeed to expand in measures that even we couldn’t imagine. I believe that we will keep up the great job.
Analysis Report (Annual Summary):
Simply the Best !!!
Ogy not only brings a sharp technical skills on the project QA but also has exceptional soft skills which is very rare in good engineers.
Greetings from the whole JS Team!
No words could explain the dedication this person has to his everyday work. Never complains and always eager to help you with everything he can. Truly a remarkable person, a rare one that should be an example for everybody.
For assembling such a great team and being always there for us.
For making Bulgaria feel like home! I came here knowing literally one person, and now I have a team of great people who are ready for anything – starting form just having a casual coffee to hanging out the whole night. Thanks to you, ninjas, I know so many wonderful human beings and I even call some of them friends. If that’s not a win I don’t know what is 😉
I am proud to work for a Bulgarian company which is successfully competing worldwide with the big bad guys.
I want to say a big THANKS to our management who runs the company in such a successful way and keep us and our families in Bulgaria.
THANK YOU SITEGROUND! WE ARE THE BEST AND I AM GRATEFUL FOR BEING A PART OF ALL THIS SUCCESS.
Lily, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
You take that blob that are my thoughts and writing and make it into elegant posts and talks.
I never particularly liked doing presentations or writing blog posts, because I always felt I struggled with “making a point”, now thanks to you I know I’ll be able to do that and make a difference for the people listening and reading.
Thank you 🙂
I mean, where do I even start?
In the past two and a half months I traveled to seven different events and I still have two to go before the end of the year. Each one of them was simply perfect.
From the assistance with the bookings, to the comprehensive briefings, to the in-person fun (Tsveta 🥓🍳🍹❤️), to the brainstorming sessions for future events. You all helped so much, I would never have made that without you!
For making the whole hiring process a very pleasant experience. And for the perfect timing: I haven’t told you that when we met in Sofia, but your job offer email reached me on an afternoon when I was particularly down, for personal reasons. So thank you 🙂
For saying that I have an impressive resume, when some of my peers in Italy made me feel like I was a jack of all trades, master of none.
Thank you for the opportunity 🙂
He is one the best supervisors I have had in more than twenty years of work. Patient, funny, knowledgeable, encouraging. And firm when he needs to (yes, I am resting after WCUS don’t worry). Can’t wait to do more WordPress good together in 2018
The introduction of Invision prototypes in the design process is pure bless!
For his daily show full of music, jokes and WP insights.
Thank you to everyone who welcomed so warmly my little Vladi and Maya into the SiteGround extended family and supported us with everything possible.
They made it happen! Thank you.
For all of us working on the holidays, spending time away from our family and love ones in order to keep the company always at it’s best! This is for the unknown heroes that are left in the shadows, you know who you are !
Pesho tries really hard to be considered as shallow, but actually, he is a guy, who you can always count on because he is “the most senior person in the building” 🙂
For being an awesome band and actually solving the technical issues, instead of causing them.
Thank you for helping us every single time we have questions, no matter how silly they are! Your guidance and knowledge really helped us improve in many aspects. Keep being awesome! 🙂
She is the epiphany of an coordinator. The events, lunches, breakfasts, decorations, thoughtful warm “small things” that are just there organized by her on a daily basis make the office a wonderful place. It’s pleasure to come to your second home ready for work. Big thanks to Iva.
I want to thank him for taking the time to help me with client inquiries via social media channels regarding technical topics. He is always very thorough and explains things in an understandable way that makes it easy to communicate back to clients.
Cheers to all colleagues (you know who you are) for organising a mini teambuilding with the company sponsored vacation. 20 people, almost all departments (Tech lvl 1 and 2, Admin, Pre-sales, CSR and phone) from all 3 Bulgarian offices).
7 days of pure epicness.
This was the best teambuilding ever!
Massive respect for the tremendous work on managing our transactions in several legislative zones. Plus overtaking the complex job of restructuring the company and moving all customers and affiliates to the appropriate new entities.
It is an honour for me to have a chance and work closely with my team and help them improve their skills, gain knowledge and provide support from another dimension. I am happy to see high level of trust and friendship.
For always walking the extra mile no matter what happens!
I am really glad to have such amazing people in my life. Girls, thank you for your patience, your smiles and everything that you are doing for every new person in SG. Thank you for being always there for us.
He smashes through the backend tasks and bugs like he smashes through his movie scenes. e.g. https://goo.gl/wGgjoH
We started using invision together, and with all of those beautiful prototypes, you have shown me that you care. You created a style guide for our new tools and that has made the boundaries of our relationship clear. You really stepped it up this year. <3
The binbaşı of the Sales Dept., a keen supporter of his favourite football team, a family guy and a friend 🙂
I think all my colleagues from SZ office are really good people with amazing smiles. Thanks to all the awesome colleagues here. For the fact that they always, help me. THANK YOU guys you are rock!
My win goes to you all guys that “hosted” me here in Sofia, have been friendly, helpful, supported me in every step during these 3 months. I felt like home.
The SG working culture surprised me, we are actually a group of friends before being colleagues.
I extent my win also to all those people who are not here in Sofia but worked with me everyday to make the Italian services better every day!
I already know that 2018 will be great!
The most cheerful and positive person here. Thank you for everything!
I’m grateful for the talent and skills of our designers making unique and awesome visuals to share on our social media channels. They always bring creativity and art touch to the tasks, and even on a short notice come up with amazing things. Thank you!
I want to say 10x to everyone in the house – it was a long and exhausting year for me personally and everyone around me helped a bit to make it through
I would like to say a big thank you to SiteGround and all technical leaders and mentors for the trainings we had this year. I think that is a BIG WIN because they helped a lot with handling day to day stuff, after the trainings I can handle tickets more easily and close them faster than before as I have more knowledge especially about our own built-in house tools.
MY people, my soulmates, my inspiration..
It was awsome !!!
For her courage to become a super mom and provide a family for two adorable little creatures.
I thank all my colleagues of the IT channel for making me experience what being in a team at work means!
Big Ups to all of you guys!
She is the only person in the room who does not swear, keeps calm throughout the day regardless of the level of stress. In addition, a keen mountain climber.
She would do anything for her friends and I’d do anything for her. A truly remarkable friend.
I’ve been working for 11 years with Dima and it was unknown to me what she exactly did in SiteGround – until I saw her presentation ‘Looking for Unicorns’. Deeply impressed with her speech. Should be given more time onstage!
It was epic, best one yet, kudos to all involved in making it happen
A huge win for Geri, and Simona for being always super helpful with Affiliate issues, and being absolute MACO wizards.
You can thank everyone else all you want, but let’s face it, without these two teams there is no SiteGround. Their devotement and professionalism help us keep servers in amazing shape, with minimum to no downtime and up to code with the latest features in the industry. Who has brought us Let’s Encrypt support? Who has brought us Avatar? Who keeps servers updated and secure? We all know the answer so here is a pint of the best beer in the world for these folks 🙂
For it’s relentless measuring activities and for keeping the whole team up to date up to date!
When I read the announcement that we will have Team Leads in our team – I was really, really excited!
Having regular feedback is of very high importance for every single team member and helps us become more precise and awesome in our day-to-day work.
My dream in SiteGround began in July/2015 and there are several people, that inspired me and continue to do it:
– Lubomir Karadjov – for leading the awesome introduction training.
– Leonid Gorunov – for the valuable feedback and pro tips.
– Martin Velikov – again for the feedback, tips and being inspiring leader.
I remember that when I was signing up for the University of Plovdiv I got extremely excited when I saw the option to study Spanish. I fell in love with it, I liked the way it sounds, the way people talk, I liked everything related to it. I’m sure that every single one of us has that dream on top of the list that he wants to achieve. Well, studying Spanish was that dream for me 😀 Turned out to be really difficult to study in University and at the same time work so I couldn’t manage to learn it the way I wanted to. But then we opened the office in Madrid. I was given the chance to come here, to meet the colleagues who later on became my family, I was able to practice my language and to experience this whole amazingness here. Later on we started offering services in Spanish and I was able to improve it further more. Then I requested to move here and one day.. I did it.
I’m extremely grateful for the fact that SiteGround gave me a chance to make my dream come true. Many people don’t get it and it is far from easy changing everything, it turned out to be not so ideal as I first imagined but it was worth it. Because the people here made it that awesome. Thanks to SiteGround I turned my colleagues into family and I was able to achieve what I wanted. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without SiteGround.
Last but not least, thanks to all the awesome colleagues here. For the fact that they always support me, help me, believe in me and are with me in the good and the bad times.
P.S Sorry for the long essay 😀
My win goes to our outstanding and helpful admins. From the regular questions in slack to the global issues – they are always here to save the day! Thank you ALL <3
From a couple of people initially to nearly 20 people right now, you guys formed the best and most friendly team I’ve ever been part of. I’m proud of you & thank you for inspiring me everyday to come to work and put my soul into it.
I think we should appreciate the enormous effort that our office managers make to run everything in our offices smoothly – from Monday breakfast to fruits, company lunches, massages and everything.
Thanks ladies, you rock! 🙂
This win goes beyond Rali’s professionalism & work ethics (which are exceptional!). I am super grateful to her for just being there for me every day. Some days, the struggle is indeed REAL, but she helps me keep my cool & keep my smile on. No matter the company, it just goes to show that only the people matter! THANK YOU, Darling – you are my personal winner <3
Thank you for picking me up each single morning and not killing me for making you wait 🙂 Thank you for the айрян you keep buying me and for eating breakfast with me as well. Last but not least – thank you for dropping me each night at the pub with the girl with big cici!!! Appreciate it big time!
Our designers are our Face – no matter if we speak about website, promo pages, emails, employer branding or gifts branding or events materials.And Dima is the key for content and ideas in this “area” – she just have a great style! Keep walking 😉 guys!
This year would have been way more challenging (work-wise) if it wasn’t for these guys! Every single day I bug them (yes, I continue to do so) for help with wording, translating & all that jazz so that we can create the perfect SiteGround message in Italy! So yes, a big THANK YOU guys, and can’t wait to see you in 10 days :*
I think the second edition of SG team building fest format was even more rocking than the first one in every aspect – food, activities, (the weather 😀 ), Technical issues, Pecata and the a**-kicking Dubioza Kolektiv performance. <3 to everyone involved and making this possible. 🙂
Because interviews for the QA team with Lubo T. follow three simple approaches: 1. Qualitative 2. Quantitative 3. Always fun 😉 Thank you Lubo! <3
One of the most pleasant people in the office (and they are many). Always smiling and ready to help. I’m really glad to be here!
THANK YOU BAT MILKO!
Thank you for your patience and everything you do for us 🙂
Our fantastic help givers 🙂 Thank you for being always there for me and Maya 🙂
For being the SiteGround face in all prominent WordPress related groups in Facebook. And especially for the gif with the fireman with the dogs. It was a great example how honesty and humour can turn the perception of the people and instead of multiple complaints from the ongoing serious technical issues we received a wave of positive comments.
Here’s to all the fellow remote colleagues who always make each shift feel fun and collaborative, even without being in the same office.
Keep being awesome!
The company itself deserves a big win for being so awesome to its customers and its employees!
Thank you all for making SiteGround the best company to work for! <3
He is always a big help when needed
Milko Nozhchev, a.k.a Bat Milko or The Legend is the best colleague you can ever work with. Besides doing his job perfectly, he will always help, in case you face any difficulties.. or just because he is cool 😀 🙂
Keep up the good work bro and never stop being such a good and funny person!
It is a great pleasure to work in the best office in Plovdiv!
This is for the Spanish Customer Service Team and everyone in the Madrid Office. Thank you for accepting the newcomers since the beginning and being such awesome colleagues. All of you truly make the experience special and worthwhile. Keep on rockin’ 😀
She is absolutely amazing in terms of technical and RFC knowledge, tasks management, planning, testing, tracking and bug reporting. It’s a complete privilege working with her. She helped me to place in order my personal tasks and keep them scheduled promptly.
I love completing complicated projects when having her by my side!
For always saying “yes, everything is possible” to our crazy ideas for the new chat polling and chat enhancements (that changed X amount of times during the year).
Comrade Velev – we did break the chat several times, but you were able to bring it back to life :).
A win for the most patient team: Bobby, Slavi, Dani, Merry, Sophie and Maria. The things you create every day are not only beautiful but smart as well. Thanks for bearing with us!
To Miro for always being there to guide me and step by step structure what I do until it becomes what I should do in a manner that is entirely me and yet more exposed to my strenghts. To Stan for building me up when I fall and always cleaning up my messes while being cool about it in both threatening(lol) and yet caring way. For answering his slack messages when in a bar , while shopping or sleeping. I guess what I want to say is, thank you for being beyond what the word
‘teamleader’ means. You guys do make a difference.
This dream team made the new fraud system come true. It was released with close to zero defects and we didn’t even have to revert once. The list with requirements was huge and every single one was magically met. As smooth as a tennis game!
Let’s hear it for MACO, guys! The best interface that handles critical moments perfectly and calculates almost anything for us 😉
Dori is awesoome! Always wearing her positive smile, she can light up your darkest days just by telling you a rhyme or two 🙂 And remember, there’s no place for fear as long as Dorch is here!
For being the best car DJ and not minding the singing from people who can’t sing (me)
Best team (phone, no offense) I’ve worked with! Girls, keep on being awesome 🙂
Mitaka rocks, everyone knows that, but I want to personally thank him for being as understanding as he is. If you have a sudden change of plans a need a schedule change – he understands. He doesn’t just make the change, but makes it in a best possible way for you. If you have a personal problem – he understands. He’s always just and there’s only fair criticism, if there is such.
And no, I’m not saying this ’cause yearly feedback is coming. I mean it, thank you!
Because she always rocks! She is one billing ninja, like the all billing department 🙂
For being the best bunch anyone can ever wish to work with. A special one goes out to Mila and Ivo for being the very best like no one ever was!!!
Simply amazing! I learned a lot from him since day 1 one in the company and even though he was working here way longer then me, never show off or disregard a question I had, even the silly ones. Beside that when our car broke on the high way going to the Plovdiv’s office, he was the only one offering us a ride. He made me feel happy, thankful, inspired and proud to be part of SiteGround this year and every other year before that!
For being such awesome band! <3
For always being there and fix ASAP the technical issues 🙂
Dani is always attending for us to be well fed (usually from Happy) and will never refuse helping when needed. Thank you Dani for always being available to help us.
And I mean all – Chat Operators, Supervisors, Managers! Thank you for your hard work all day, every day. Special thanks for all of the people that taught me what I know now, the list is long so whoever taught me even the smallest thing – thank you! You all win the title “best colleagues”.
I am considering myself for a positive person and I would like to let everyone know that one smile a day keeps the negative away!
Thank you all for the smiles! THANK YOU!
Thank you guys for being such an amazing team to work with. Even if we work remotely and rarely see each other, we managed to create a very tight-knit group..We help and support each other day by day, we actually laugh a lot, joking and kidding, as REAL friends. Each one of you is just amazing, thank you <3
For being Velev! For being a marathon runner, regular Plovdiv visitor and because he is making Sudjuci (and I want him to share some).
Assigning us Team Leaders was one big step to better performance, ticket handling and support a whole. All Team Leaders are great, but I want to give out a special thanks to Dimitar Dimov who is a great friend, colleague and mentor.
Because she is always smiling and says “It’s Okaaaaaay” 🙂
For always going over the limit to create amazing atmosphere for us at the company events 🙂
Cuz he’s my adopted child! At such a young age people tend to be immature and kind of all over the place ! This is a person who is more mature than anyone that age I have known to be! A person who’s shoulder you can cry on and a person who will share your wins with you while truly being happy for you! Not to mention the positive energy that he surrounds you with! Ana amazing colleague and friend ! A person you can count on !
Bat Niko not only drives Legend but is a legend himself!! This is one of the most knowledgeable people and you can always count on him. Especially how to lose with dignity when you play table tennis 🙂
No idea who suggested it or how it started but I’m thankful for it 🙂
This is my mentor! The person who taught me a lot of what I know today! The person who patiently stood by me for three full days and explained to me how to make it rain! 🙂 I would not be able to do what I do so successfully if he wasn’t part of my learning process so early on. Thank you!
For the regular beer supply!
Cos I love working and hanging out with you guys :))
The greatest win for SiteGround for cultivating the habit of being Happy Together!
This is the funniest person EVER! He can make you cry and die in laughter! He will always be special because he brought me here to this awesome place!
Being part of this team has taught me so much for the past two years! This is my family away from home. We spend so much time together it would be impossible not to feel as if we are all one small family. Of course we don’t choose our families so same goes here but we respect each other, share our thoughts with one another, our positive and negative experiences and count on each other for everything! It goes from daily tasks to feeling for the person who’s child is sick or even to the late arrival of the hat that was ordered LOL- we feel each other’s pain, happiness, sadness and we do our best to be there for one another! If I had to choose to go through this journey with one team- start to finish, it would be pre-sales still! Every member of that team has influenced me one way or another whether they know it or not. They are friends I share personal things with as well as work related matters and I know they have my back just as I have theirs! Pre-sales all day every day! It’s the team everyone wants to be a part of and that’s because we are a tight nit bunch! Pre-sales for the win! Make it rain !!!!
It’s not fair to pick up only one! you know how many awesome people work here, right? There is Angel N, who sings Tez cherveni domati in Turkish/German, so I will start with him!
She’s so positive always in a fun mood and willing to help. She made me smile many times this year not only because she treats others with chocolate and optimistic post-it notes. Moods can be contagious!
Being part of a team means to be an understanding human being. Being there for one another and reaching out to help even when help isn’t asked for – just from seeing someone today and knowing who they are and if they are out of the usual mood. In order to be a valuable part of the team it’s of great value to be a good person. To make people feel good, to make people feel just as valued, just as import and just as big a deal as you yourself feel. Rumen is a person who people want to associate with, who people want to learn from and who you would want on your team. Knowing he has your back makes you a winner already! I believe that a winner is someone who has an understand that he is just one of many but an important part of the team !
What started as a small idea to bond the affiliates team expanded quickly and now encompasses the whole marketing team. Every month we pay a visit to a different restaurant that serves national cuisine. It’s a great way to taste multicultural dishes and hang out together.
A win for their dedication, inspiration and totally awesome result every year.
Because every morning she greets me with a smile and makes my day better 🙂 Also the girls on reception do much more than most people notice 🙂
For making me feel truly magical by giving me a unicorn as a gift after having seen a presentation that I recently gave at an HR forum. He said “You were looking for unicorns, so I got you one”. Joro, that makes two of you. Thank you <3
I would have been lost and sunk in the sea of TLDs if it wasn’t for Didi’s help. Every time I’ve had a question, she’s been there to help me and investigate with me until we’ve cleared everything.
For the idea to extend our weekly internal marketing “win” initiative to the rest of the SiteGround team! I wished I could give wins to people from other departments on several occasions and now I can do that!
My most recent example of feeling proud to be part of SiteGround team was Dima’s presentation about the company investing in the happiness of its people at the HR Forum last month. “Looking for Unicorns” motto is absolutely ingenious.
First, thanks for having them in the office. Second, Maya and Stefi, thank you, for the outstanding organization this year.
More of a vacation with friends than a team building, the Marketing Team Lemnos trip was an opportunity to bond and get to know the people we work with every day in a completely new way.
A ‘kid in the oven’ I’ll never forget! <3
More of a legend than a project, the Cancellation rework took a few months for Ivan who not only fulfilled the requirements we had, but volunteered to suggest improvements where needed and always chose the right way instead of the easy one.
No refunds!!! 🙂
Niki has been calm and never complained during the Black Friday sales when additional requirements were added at a later stage, there were bugs that needed fixing after hours on a Friday evening when he was supposed to be with his family.
There’s really more than one case that brings this win for Lubo. Lubo is always there when you have a dumb question to ask and is the one person who can always help no matter the situation.
For introducing the “win” idea to the Monday marketing meetings and inspiring the current site with it.
Bobi did this awesome site in no time and had the patience to change the header, fonts, colors and everything else like 1000 times without even raising his voice!
