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.

Going back to the startup roots

"I see Telerik Academy as an inseparable part of the ecosystem. If I go back to Telerik, our company couldn’t have expanded so dynamically and achieved such results, if we didn’t have the opportunity to grow in a predictable and planned way, with talent that entered the organization right when we wanted it. There is no other existing organization on the market that can give such a controlled inflow of talent," Telerik Academy Co-founder Boyko Iaramov.
