Vereign Team Talk with Gospodin Bodurov

Vereign stands for confidentiality, integrity and actuality. Its mission is to enable you to own your digital identity, a platform where you could choose whom to trust, what they could access and retract it at any time. It is designed to add a layer of authenticity and security to your day-to-day communication: Authentic Communication through Blockchain Federated Networks.

In order to achieve this mission we have a diverse, hardworking and experienced team working behind the scenes. Meet the team behind Vereign with our Team Talks!

Can you share a little of your professional background?
I am a self-taught programmer and I started programming at the age of 14. After that I entered programming contests for multiple years and won top places in some of them. I was a coach of the national team in competitive programming. At the age of 19, I was a lecturer at the best Computer Science University in Bulgaria – Sofia University. I was also part of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and gave a number of tasks to the most elite division in high school and university contests. At the same time, I was part of seven start-ups, Vereign is my eighth. My previous experience covers industries like airline ticketing solutions, airline fuel efficiency data warehouse, binary stock options trading platforms, Android Office Suite, artificial intelligence, GPS tracking and map solutions and last but not the least cyber security products. For the last four years I have worked as a remote IT consultant.

Can you describe your role at Vereign?
I am the Head of Development. My responsibilities are to look after the overall product technical design, review all the merge requests coming from software engineers, create technical designs, architectures and innovations, take care of the overall technical team hiring strategy, second stage of technical interviews, write documentation and technical specifications and communication with technical partners like IBM, Collabora etc. In short, most of the technical and hiring strategy decisions are coming from me.

Why do you love working for Vereign?
My entire work experience is product based. In the Vereign case I believe that we have the right product and the right team to accomplish our goals. We have a seasoned business and sales team and also a very experienced and talented technical team. And last but not least, I really like difficult challenges. Implementing the most secure identity legal system in the world is such a challenge, so count me in!

How would others describe you?
I do not know, maybe a genius? I hear that a lot…, I do not believe that. Another one is paranoid, and well in that I truly believe. But I would prefer to be described as a good father and husband. Hopefully that will happen

What is next on your bucket list?
Delivering the product, taking care of my soon to be born child, which reminds me… I do not have much more time left until the end of the year!
