What’s your story? Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do here at GoDaddy.

My name is Alexander Ivanov, and I’m 35 years old. I’m currently a member of GoDaddy’s Global Sustaining Engineering team, where I’ve been dedicated for the past five and a half years. My educational background includes a degree in Telecommunications from New Bulgarian University. During my tenure at GoDaddy, I’ve had the privilege of working on a multitude of challenging and engaging projects. This experience has allowed me to be deeply involved in a wide range of initiatives within the company.

What has driven your growth most through your career?

My career growth has been primarily fueled by my unwavering commitment to consistently overachieve and my willingness to put in countless hours of effort. I find immense satisfaction in tackling complex challenges and delivering results with a go-getter attitude. My passion for my work and the tangible impact it has on our customers provide me with an endless source of motivation. I am continuously inspired by the confidence my managers have in entrusting me with crucial tasks and projects. I pour my energy into each endeavor, always striving to achieve the highest level of success, whether it’s a project, a goal, or a simple task.

What has been one of your proudest moments at GoDaddy?

There have been numerous memorable moments during my time at GoDaddy. Some stand out as truly impactful, such as the time we had to respond to a critical vulnerability affecting our core mail service. We dedicated countless hours to patching the issue, resulting in a remarkable success. Another significant achievement I’m proud of is the automation of our monitoring system, a task once considered nearly impossible. This system has substantially improved the customer experience and is now an invaluable tool for our colleagues. Lastly, I take great pride in our team’s collective effort to create over 300+ articles for our knowledge base. These articles have proven invaluable for colleagues across various departments, fostering a sense of teamwork and collaboration that I hold in high regard.

What differentiates GoDaddy from any other company in Bulgaria?

One of the key differentiators is the remarkable knowledge-sharing culture that exists at GoDaddy. I have had the privilege of receiving guidance and mentorship from both my managers and colleagues, which has elevated the quality of my work to new heights. This culture of mentorship and collaboration is truly invaluable to me.

What’s your motto or personal mantra?

I have two guiding mottos:

  • “No dream is too BIG.”
  • “Make it simple, but significant.”

These mottos remind me to dream big, aim high, and find significance in simplicity, which drives me to excel in all aspects of my work.
