Employees are the backbone of IT companies and their most important asset. Finding the right people to join is crucial to the organizations’ success but may be a daunting task, especially when you have a relatively small talent pool available and an ever-expanding demand for software engineers.

Internet of Things (IoT) has become an increasingly popular topic both in the tech world and beyond. Companies like our partners from Bosch Software Innovations (Bosch SI) are tapping into its enormous potential. To tell you more about their Bulgarian office and the talent they’re looking for, we sat and talked with Jordan Simeonov, Head of Backend Products at Bosch SI Sofia and Chief Product Owner of the Bosch IoT Manager.
At Telerik Academy we are connecting leading tech companies with Master Junior talent to power businesses and help learners attain the most in-demand skills, realize their full potential and start a successful career in the industry. We’ve built a strong partner network that constantly evolves and develops.
Our partners from Leanplum more than doubled their Bulgarian team last year and plan on keeping the growth for 2019. To learn more about the company, its goals and culture, we sat and talked with Vassil Yordanov, Senior Product Designer at Leanplum.
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.
Telerik Academy reports 35% more applicants for their programs per year. The organization says that 93% of the students who completed their Alpha programs for IT career start were able to realize themselves in the IT sector within 6 months.
Motivated by the opportunity for better work-life balance, higher salaries, and attractive company culture, people of all ages and backgrounds are making a 180-degree career change to IT. Usually starting from scratch. Although such a career transformation seems risky, the following stories of 3 software engineers prove otherwise. All three of them are graduates of Telerik Academy Alpha.
Alexandra Mechkova, our CEO shares that the courses should not be seen as a substitute but rather as a supplement to university education: "While at university one can go deep into theory, we add practice, work in a real environment, direct connection with employers, development of key personal and communication skills. We are often the transition from formal education to business."
Iskra Lumbeva, developer at OfficeRnD and one of our Alpha graduates: I decided to apply to Telerik Academy Alpha to find out if programming is my career path. I met incredible people there and realized that this is the environment where I want to spend my time, surrounded by intelligent people who want to develop themselves and learn new things every day.
