Some of the most innovative companies in Bulgaria partner with Telerik Academy to ensure they have access to top Master Junior talent. Telerik Academy’s graduates are well-prepared from the very beginning to start contributing to the success of their business and to quickly move on to the next professional level.
We sat down with Marin Dimitrov, Engineering Manager at Uber, to talk about the office in Bulgaria, plans for the team here and the role Telerik Academy plays.
Telerik Academy was presented with the prestigious IT Project of the Year in Education accolade at the annual ICT Media awards. The Academy was recognized for the integration of the largest Cisco Meraki network in Bulgaria. Today our students have access to a wireless network of the highest class, comparable only to big enterprise networks.
Martin Manchev has a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Master's Degree in Financial Management. For 5 years he gained experience and climbed the career ladder, but at some point he realized this was not his calling. He decided to pursue a career in the IT sector, which provides a more dynamic work environment and more opportunities for professional development.
Programming was just a hobby for Vasil Dininski. He studied “International Economic Relations” at the University of National and World Economy. Driven by his love for information technology, Vasil applied and was accepted to Telerik Academy. As soon as he graduated from the Academy, he started working as a junior software developer at Telerik, and since the beginning of 2017, he is now part of Amazon’s team.
The record breaking 14 medals that Bulgaria won at the last International Informatics Competition in Shumen were just one aspect of the good news for Telerik co—founder Boyko Iaramov. He contributed significantly to the ranking of 4th and 5th graders at the leading 8 positions: they all are trainees of the Telerik Kids Academy.
Three years after Telerik co-founders Svetozar Georgiev and Vassil Terziev graced the cover of Forbes Magazine Bulgaria for the first time, Vassil Terziev is back on the cover of the prestigious business monthly.
There is more behind the avalanche-kind of success than just a good business model and a few smart ideas. You feel this the moment you enter the company's headquarters in Sofia's "Mladost" suburb. "In spite of being in the lime light, for us everyone working for the organization is a hero,” says Terziev.
In Bulgaria, where demand for qualified IT specialists is now outstripping the available supply, Telerik promotes itself as the only company in the country that offers free training courses. In 2009, it set up an academy for software engineers. So far 510 have enrolled — though not all stay the course — and the annual intake is rising. This year about 1,000 started the program, of whom Telerik plans to hire about 150.
The ability to think beyond the three options and see a fourth is the source of all competitive advantage. For example, software companies all share the same global strategic headache: recruiting capable programmers. Most employers looking to hire capable programmers consider three obvious options: pay more, outsource to third-party developers, or slow down development. Telerik considered these options but instead decided to go for a fourth option–they created Telerik Academy.
