Students from the newest educational place in Burgas – the first professional IT High School for Programming and Innovation, isited our headquarters and main software delivery center in Sofia. Our Delivery Manager Krasimir Kostadinov and Senior Software Engineer, Tushka Dermendzhieva, gave them a warm welcome, followed by talks on “How and why did I join ScaleFocus”.
Students did a short office tour and explored from where we craft premium software. After this, we all enjoyed the magnificent view from the 24th Floor and had the chance to talk and get to know the students better.
Krasimir Kostadinov, Dimo Kapnilov (Team Lead) and Stoyan Stoyanov (Senior Software Engineer) are sharing their knowledge and hands-on experience with the high school students by giving lectures on various topics. They already hosted several lectures in September. One of our missions is to educate society on the emerging technologies and expand their skills.
“We have weekly lectures on different IT topics with the high school students. ScaleFocus colleagues are open to share knowledge ,yet another goal when working with young talents is inspire them to love technology and the process of crafting software. We want to make sure they build self-learning attitude because the IT world changes by the second and life-long learning is the foundation of their professional development.”
Comments Metodi Amov, Burgas Site Lead
As you probably remember, ScaleFocus supported the IT High School in Burgas’ opening and is part of the the official school council together with 5 more companies from the IT sector and representatives from Burgas Free University, Burgas University and the Bulgarian Outsourcing Association (BOA).
We heavily invest in the future of bright talents and are always eager to support such initiatives. ScaleFocus has already done a traineeship program with Assen Zlatarov University.
After opening our third software delivery center of excellence in Burgas, we took the proactive approach and organized the first Beer JS in Burgas this summer. We also took part in the Beach Hackathon and were announced as winners there as well. Our team is constantly growing, if you are still thinking about finding a great place, with cool, open-minded people, take a look at the additional benefits we offer for people, who decide to relocate to our office in Varna or Burgas.
Let’s craft premium software from the seaside! Check-out our current opening for Burgas.
