Genius Sports, the global leader in the capture, distribution and commercialisation of live sports data, has expanded its presence in Bulgaria with a new 400-capacity office in Sofia.

The new office will act as the nerve centre for Genius Sports’ data collection and monitoring operations, building cutting-edge software that underpins its strategy of representing official data rights and monetising them on behalf of sports.

The major expansion of its Sofia operations demonstrates an increased commitment to the Bulgarian market with dozens of exciting new DevOps and Cloud Engineer vacancies currently available for .NET, PHP and JavaScript developers.

Located just off Tsarigradsko Shose, next to The Mall shopping centre, the office provides a collaborative and creative space across two floors, complete with mini golf, games rooms, indoor basketball, a terrace complete with hammocks, library and TV rooms, while staff can travel around the office by micro scooter.

Stephen Gardner, Chief Services and Delivery Officer at Genius Sports Group, said: “Genius Sports first invested into Bulgaria four years ago and we haven’t looked back. The talent we’ve been able to attract has been hugely impressive, building one of our largest global locations and continually enhancing business-critical services that are used by the largest brands in sports and betting.”
