Telerik Academy is a great starting point for anyone who wants to jumpstart a career in the IT industry. It provided me with the underlying knowledge and practical experience needed to join the sector.

Alexander Popov
Site Engineering Lead

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

Kalin Kostov
Software Developer
(Class of 2017)

There is no other tech-ed organization in Bulgaria like Telerik 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 the Academy.

Ivan Rusev
Head of Software Development

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.

Kiril Peyanski
Software Engineer
(Class of 2017)

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.

Stoyan Damov

After 10+ years of scrutinizing and perfecting its craft it’s no wonder Telerik Academy is the leader in technical education. We are honored to have 15 alumni at Tick42 who are continuously getting unsolicited praise from our clients, and we’ll most definitely continue partnering closely with Telerik Academy.

Rusi Rusev
Front-End Developer
(Class of 2018)

From day one at Telerik Academy Alpha I knew I’ve had made the right choice. The trainers are 100% dedicated to providing students with the best possible education and preparing them to meet and exceed the expectations of their future employers.

Svetoslav Torbov
Head of Development

Telerik Academy has become a valuable partner for us thanks to its years of experience in training IT talent in Bulgaria. Through our collaboration we connect with students who have in-depth knowledge, high potential, and motivation for building a career in the IT industry.
