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.
Today, we are happy to welcome Paysafe, TBI Bank, SyncHR, Documaster and Rewe Digital among our partners and continue our great work with Fourth, Dais Software, Bright Consulting and TransportSoft for a second consecutive year and Tick42 who are with us for a third year in a row.
The companies within our partner network recognize the need for fresh new tech talent and are ready to act on it. By joining forces with Telerik Academy, they have access to our highly curated pool of candidates, get to know them in person and are able to position their employer brand in front of the next digital builders of Bulgaria.
Companies eager to take the maximum of our partner program, provide a hands-on task that serves as a final project for the Telerik Academy Alpha students, along with guidance and mentorship throughout the last educational module. We asked them why they’ve chosen to partner with Telerik Academy and here is what they shared:
Svetoslav Torbov, Head of Development, Paysafe: “At Paysafe, we support initiatives that add value to our local communities and Telerik Academy is a great example of this. The 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. And we help them further develop. As an employer, Paysafe offers these students the opportunity to join a positive, fun and motivational working environment. We encourage creativity and initiative and our team sees our work implemented in practice on a global level. Paysafe is a great place to start and develop an IT career."
Stoyan Damov, Co-Founder Tick42: “I believe finding and grooming young talent is the only sustainable, future-proof recruitment channel for our company’s growth, and I salute Telerik Academy for being both the pioneer and the champion in that.
After 10 years of scrutinizing and perfecting its craft it’s no wonder Telerik Academy is the leader in technical education. And I think I know their secret sauce – discover great people and uncover their many talents. 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, including in helping them spice up their sauce.”
Nikolay Spasov, CОO of TBI Bank: “TBI Bank’s goal is to strengthen its position as a digital bank, while Telerik Academy is a hub for bright IT talent and this makes us natural allies. We recruit and develop the next generation of bold fintech inventors and Telerik Academy provides the much needed link between high-quality education and prospective career. Frankly, it’s a perfect match and we’re very much looking forward to working alongside the Academy in various areas.”
Georgi Hristov, Head of Software Development at Fourth: “We didn’t have any doubts whether to partner with Telerik Academy again this year – it has proved to build great talents from scratch. At the same time, we can provide great opportunity and career start at Fourth for every high-quality graduate from the Telerik Academy.”
