Welcome to
Paiyak Development

We’re a growing web development studio with a focus on custom WordPress solutions. Our goal is to create ongoing relationships with highly satisfied clients while providing an excellent working environment for enthusiastic professionals.

Paiyak means, “spider,” in Bulgarian, and we aim to emulate the beauty and logical design of nature’s best web designers in our work. Our office is in Gabrovo, Bulgaria, but our excellent level of English and international background allows us to freely communicate with clients across the globe.

What Our Clients Say About Us

One of the things we pride ourselves in is client satisfaction - it is one of the top reasons our clients come back to us time and time again.

Below are what some of our clients think about us. You can also find more reviews on Nikola's CodeMentor.io profile.

I’ve worked with Nikola on and off for a little over a year now. Nikola’s knowledge with not only WordPress, but in anything code related is astounding. Anytime I had a project/assignment that was out of my wheelhouse, Nikola was able to make it happen. From helping develop a custom web application for a large local company, to connected an e-commerce website to Sage100 (not easily done from WordPress), Nikola always delivered. It’s also refreshing that if he’s unsure about how to do something right away, he always would let me know, and then very soon after would send back a solution that worked. Incredible. Without any hesitation whatsoever, I definitely recommend him, his team, and his services to anyone interested in hiring Paiyak Development.

Nikola is really an amazing, top-notch developer. He is an expert in building high-quality full-scale web sites and applications, while meticulously executing each tiny detail of the client requests. He’s somehow always able to go beyond the client’s expectations with his impressive work. It was a great pleasure to work with Nikola, and I highly recommend the Paiyak Development services.

Nikola really knows his stuff. He is a great WordPress developer. On codementor.io, he helped me figure out badly written legacy custom WordPress code pretty quickly. Also, he created a development/staging server for me so I could test new code without breaking the live server. For a newbie WordPress developer like myself, this was a huge help.

I manage several clients and their websites, mainly in the non-profit sector, and when I found Nikola my life got a lot easier!
Nikola has been my WordPress developer on several projects and I wouldn’t work with anyone else!
Nikola is one of the “good guys” in the development world. He is very personable, patient and easy to work with. He knows his stuff and suggests options when he sees the need for it. He is a great resource for information and happy to educate and inform along the way. And he gets the project done on time! His support and interest in non-profits is an added plus.
I have not met a more professional and capable developer in my years of website management and development. Cheers Nikola!

Nikola is an expert in WordPress and a great teacher. He taught me everything I know about WordPress from scratch, including a number of WordPress best practices such as creating customized WordPress theme, widget and plugin. He is always honest, patient and helpful. I feel very lucky to have found a WordPress expert like Nikola.

During the start of a new WordPress website in 2013 for our company we had some problems with compatibility of WordPress plugins. At that time I met Nikola who helped me out and solved all the problems quickly. When he founded Paiyak Development it was without any doubt to ask him to develop a new website for us. With his professional team, endless support and effort to make it perfect they succeeded for 100%. We are more than happy with their professional attitude, no nonsense service, fantastic communication and critical eye. For us they are priceless! Also in the future we will keep doing business with Paiyak Development for sure! We will absolutely highly recommend Paiyak Development.
