– For several years, Wrike has been developing very dynamically and although in my opinion we have the best research and development team, openness to other points of view is important – says Andrew Filev, founder and CEO of Wrike – We enjoy a high level of innovation and creativity of submitted projects. From the results of the competition so far, it is clear that in the context of the continuous expansion of our team, we were not mistaken in choosing the next location and pool of local talent. I am very happy that I will be able to meet the finalists in person and maybe I will suggest a few of them work in the Wrike Prague branch – adds Filev.
