Tatyana Lesidrenska: the paragliding technical project manager
Tatyana Lesidrenska is a Technical Project Manager at Strypes and an organised free spirit with a diverse background. Before Strypes, Tatyana studied to become a teacher, worked in an advertising company, in IT, and on TV. Most of her work experience is in the IT industry and focuses on planning and delivering projects.
DevOps and how to ensure better communication
The role of DevOps is to bridge the gap between the development and the operations teams. In the past, the structure of software development companies was split into these two departments, and that created some issues in the long run. When the development team wanted to deliver features, they wanted to deliver as many and as fast as possible. The operations team, however, resisted changes that might break something that was already working. There was this constant conflict and this is where DevOps came in as a solution to ensure better collaboration by using a unified approach to software delivery.
Ivan Uzunov on growing in his role at Strypes
Ivan Uzunov is the Outsource Manager for Strypes/ICT, who is directly responsible for the relationship with our partner, ASML. He joined Strypes back in 2011 when one of our colleagues called to tell him that we’re hiring developers. He got the job and in time after proving his skills, he became a Scrum Master of multiple migration projects. Ivan worked in three different groups within Strypes. Naturally, the next step for him was to become a Project Lead.
2019 was the year to focus on engaging the hearts and minds of talent
Another great year goes by and we are grateful to have you as a client, and most of all, a partner. This year, we invested a lot of effort in turning Strypes into an even more amazing workplace where talent thrives. We hired 110 new developers and we are growing fast, but at the same time we recognise the importance of nurturing the relationship with all our current employees.
We welcome Up2 to our family of companies

Nasko Filchev on what makes a good COO
Nasko Filchev is Strypes’ COO and is one of the first people to join the company after Koen van Wijk founded it in 2008. Nasko graduated and worked in Germany, but he wanted to go back to his home country, Bulgaria. He then discovered a job ad posted by a small company that was just starting out. There was a huge potential for growth and Nasko knew that by seeing the business model. He saw the potential in Koen as a founder, who had the knowledge and expertise to expand the company and build a strong link between its Bulgarian and Dutch branches.
