We are very proud of the quality work delivered by the team. It was a turbulent journey sometimes, however, the outstanding accomplishments and super positive feedback from clients excite us to look forward to 2022.
Read on for DevriX 2021 in review.
DevriX at Work
This year DevriX earned well-deserved recognition as one of Clutch’s top B2B firms in Bulgaria for 2021. We were ranked in 12th position in the B2B sector!
And that’s not all. Here are some more accomplishments from the past year that we are really glad to share:
- Cloudways » 15+ Web Design and Development WordPress Agencies to Look At in 2021
- Prweb.com » The Top WordPress Developers In January, According To Designrush (Prweb.Com)
- Softwareworld » World’s Top 50+ Web Design & Development Companies In 2021
- Expertise.com » Top 31 Developers in New York, NY
For the fans of numbers, here are several DX stats from 2021:
- High-profile WordPress retainer clients list grew with 7 new partners
- Successfully completed one-off projects: 7
- 5000+ Asana tasks
- 280+ hours of client meetings, without even trying to count the internal ones
- 25 epic CSS battles during the year
- Published a total of 211 articles on DevriX’s blog
To sum up – hard work pays off. Since WordPress retainer plans are the most successful model for building a sustainable digital business in 2021, 95% of our business is Retainer-based. In 2021, thanks to the WordPress retainers, team DevriX delivered impressive results across different projects for enterprise companies, publishers, large multisite platforms, eCommerce and non-profit businesses, and more.
Dedicated to long-term results, the retainer model provides access to a diverse team of niche experts on a monthly basis. Our tech team works side by side with expert DevOps, UX, AdOps, Marketing, Creative and Project Management talents to scale businesses ”the agile way”.
Contributing to WordPress and the Community
Giving back to the WordPress community has always been one of DevriX’s core values.
As a company tradition, we organize internal contributor days where the concept of WordPress contribution is introduced to our junior team members.
DevriX also shares knowledge in support forums and provides free access to themes and plugins to help the WordPress society.
The company has been one of the Admin sponsors of WCEU 2021 which brought together WordPress experts from different industries with beginner users interested in everything WordPress-related.

The main motivation for our participation in WordCamps over the years has always been to meet new talents and contribute to the WordPress community growth.
At WCEU 2021 DevriX’s CTO Stanko Metodiev took part in the sponsor interviews and shared best practices for staying up to date on everything new in the WordPress world.
On the other hand, Mario’s talk ‘’Client Management: Transition From a Vendor to a Consultant‘’ covered some of the most important things to consider when it comes to client management, as well as his thoughts on WordPress Consulting opportunities.
Supporting the next generation of developers and WordPress experts is a valuable part of our company mission.
For another year we were honored to share our participation in a one of its kind hackathon in Bulgaria, HackTUES. An event that supports aspiring and talented techs in their quest to challenge themselves in creating a better future. This year marked the seventh edition of the event and was named HackTUES Go Green (GG) with the goal to Develop for the Environment.
DevriX’s participation in Career Show 2021 and Career show Marketing, Sales, and Customer Support edition was yet another great company initiative for 2021, where we got to share knowledge and expertise with young and ambitious talents who see their future in the WordPress industry.
Other than that, DevriX’s CEO Mario Peshev took part in both American Digital Week and European Digital Week as one of the biggest online events dedicated to digital transformation, modern technology, and innovations.

Moreover, this year Mario was accepted into Forbes Technology Council, an invitation-only community for world-class technology executives. The Forbes Technology Council brings together proven leaders from every industry and creates a curated network that helps every member grow professionally, so we can expect Mario to make an even greater impact on the business world and IT industry.
Super stoked to be featured in @Forbes Bulgaria (print & digital) this month with @wpdevrix being on the frontline.
