Investing in master junior talent

According to the latest BASSCOM annual study of the Bulgarian software industry, the number of employees in it has increased with 15% compared to last year. This makes for a staggering 3,563 new jobs in the hottest sector in the country. At the same time, just 12,9% of all students are pursuing STEАM degrees. Does this mean the gap between companies’ needs and professionals available on the market will keep widening even further? It doesn’t have to.

Making a leap from construction to the IT industry ​

Rusi Rusev graduated from Telerik Academy Alpha with JavaScript in May and shortly after that kickstarted his first IT career as Junior Front-End Developer at Gtmhub. His university education and professional experience, however, were in an entirely different field. Rusi has a master’s degree in “Structural Engineering” and worked in the construction industry for a while. When he felt the need for a change, he turned to Telerik Academy to successfully switch careers.

​Steven Tsvetkov, Technical Trainer at Telerik Academy, was included in the prestigious Forbes Bulgaria “30 Under 30” annual list for his substantial contribution to the Telerik Academy mission - to prepare the next generation of digital leaders.

Inspiring passion for learning.
Changing lives and businesses.

Telerik Academy is creating a society of life-long learners. It teaches a mindset that is not only of great help when solving complex problems, but also serves as a wonderful motivator to constantly be hunting for and adopting new skills and information.

The time and effort I put into Telerik Academy are among my best investments so far. There is no other tech-ed organization in Bulgaria like the Academy. These are not only my words. I know a lot of expats who came back to Bulgaria and people who quit their jobs or put their university studies on hold to be able to fully dedicate themselves to Telerik Academy.

Some of my best junior software engineers at Uber and Skyscanner come from Telerik Academy. It is always a pleasure to work with their alumni!

We partner with Telerik Academy because we know their graduates have gone through an extremely demanding program—with high training standards and practice—and have proven themselves to be true technology ninjas.

Telerik Academy changed my life. At the age of 20, I was already independent and working my dream job! Without the knowledge and experience I gained at Telerik Academy, I wouldn’t have had such a flying start.
