Would it surprise you if we told you there is a massive demand for IT specialists in our market?
No? And what if we put it into numerical terms?
According to recent BASSCOM reports, by 2025, the IT sector will need more than 32,000 new IT talents!
"To support these demands, we need a long-term strategy where institutions and businesses work jointly to achieve the desired results," explained Bosch Digital
, one of our partners in the Telerik Academy network
. “The business already tackles these challenges by actively investing in training and development of their current employers. We are no exception,” our partners added.
For Bosch Digital, this means developing comprehensive internship and training programs, collaborating with universities and professional high schools, and partnering with Telerik Academy to source master junior talent. These strategic initiatives are crucial for the growth of Bosch Digital and the nurturing and empowering of the next generation of IT professionals.

Over two decades of history in Bulgaria
The beginning of Bosch Digital in Bulgaria dates back more than two decades ago! The company opened its office in Sofia in 1998 under the name ProSyst.
“Back then, we called ourselves “Inventors of IoT'' with a strong Java skill set and a lot of enthusiasm,” the Bosch Digital team recalled.
In 2015 the company became part of the Bosch Group, which gave the team an even bigger impetus to develop their capabilities further and contribute to large-scale projects. “For many years, we have been the go-to destination of the Group for IoT, now we broaden our focus even more by expanding our digital portfolio,” they added.
As a result, more than 280 technology experts are part of the team today, and what is fascinating - a pretty big group of people have been there since day one - more than 20 years ago!
As our partners from Bosch Digital explained to us, it's because of the company's unique culture, which combines the best of both worlds - "we are part of a big international company, but we also keep a family-friendly atmosphere at work. What drives us forward is a passion for tech and our common mission to create a better future for our world."
