Tell us more about you!
My name is Ivan Georgiev, and I work as a developer at Silentbet.com.
I live in the city of Varna situated at the Bulgarian seashore. It is a truly magical place where the sea waves caress the golden sands scattered on our beautiful beaches :D. I’m 31 and love my job.
What do you do?
I am mainly involved in web design and web architecture. My first steps into the world of IT were taken back in 2005 when I was still a high school pupil. At that time, I took part in numerous projects and due to popular trends was even charged with the responsibility of designing the school’s website. All this sparked my interest in all things computer related.
In addition to this, I have been involved in projects to do with outdoor advertising, graphic design, web design, 3D modeling, 3D animation, programming of accounting systems and many more.
How did you end up working in the sphere of online gambling?
I first got to know more about the iGaming industry when I had to design a casino web site. That happened almost ten years ago, and I dare say that since then the whole industry has undergone significant development. Besides, today’s people are much more informed and more intelligent. No matter how knowledgeable you may be or how stable your mentality is, gambling often becomes one of the biggest enemies of man.
That’s how the idea for the improvement of Silentbet.com was born. When I started working on this project, the site was, to say the least, impractical user-experience wise. Slowly but steadily we added valuable and helpful content and revamped it so that it can provide our readers with useful tips and reviews.
Why Silentbet? Is there a special meaning to the name?
I’m not quite sure. Perhaps Nasko liked the sound of it. The owl is our spirit animal, the lucky charm of the site. In my opinion, it is a very fitting talisman as the owl symbolizes wisdom which is an essential quality for anyone who wants to gamble.
Silentbet was revamped and now sports an entirely different design. What prompted you to choose it?
During the creative process, I had to pull out all the stops with the help of my teammates as each, and every one of them contributed to the end result you see now. We focused our efforts on user-friendliness and stylish, high-end choices for the overall look of Silentbet. The reviews on our site provide information on the best offers and bonuses available at some of the top bookmakers and casinos on the market. Catering to an international audience of readers, we continuously keep track of current promotions and update our content.
What do you do in your free time?
My hobby is to paint. I’m quite talented which comes in handy when I design the pages of our site. Besides being an artist, I am keen on music and have recorded lots of tracks unprofessionally. Being a DJ for a while, I could live the dream. At the weekend, I love spending time with my wife walking our dog on the beach or the mountain. What are men compared to rocks and mountains! Of course, no matter how fun it is to travel the feeling of freedom and the thrill of the unknown wears off soon, so I have no problem working on our projects as it recharges me.
What are your plans for the future?
My only wish is that the entire team and their loved ones enjoy good health. May we be blessed with prosperity! I hope we continue to be full of zeal and eager to succeed in all that we do : ) Let me not forget to show my appreciation to the leader of our team, Nasko, If it weren’t for him none of our accomplishments would have been possible. Kudos to Nasko!
Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions!
No problem. It was a pleasure. : )
