Veselin Raichev has worked as a software engineer for Google, where he has been engaged in Google Maps and Google Translate.
Google employees can use 20% of their time to work on projects that are important to them, that may become important for the company, but are not the main thing they are hired for. For me such project was Google Translate, which I collected data for, trained systems from Bulgarian to English and vice versa, adjusted them and added a module that conjugated words. Google Translate had one of the best teams that I’ve ever worked with. I spent 20% of one year for that, which is not a lot of time, and therefore I have not contributed as much as the people who were creating the whole system.
