Lidl to open IT CoE in Bulgaria
German discount supermarket chain Lidl said it is opening an IT center of excellence in Bulgaria.
Opening of the Sofia-based Lidl Digital IT center of excellence was announced back in April, and now hiring and office space is well under-way. It will focus on developing platforms, systems and solutions for online trading, which will be used in all countries where Lidl operates, the company said in a statement. The IT center of excellence will create 120 jobs.
Lidl was considering several other European countries, but chose to set up the center in Bulgaria due to the highly qualified IT specialists and the dynamically developing IT sector in the country. The supermarket chain has similar centers in Germany, Spain and Romania.
