What career opportunities does Sirma Solutions offer for young people?
What are the parameters of mentoring in the learning process?
The mentoring process is strictly individual and based on trust and mutual respect. As we recognize this we strive to guide and support everyone through the approach they need, encouraging honest and open communication.
In our practice, the mentor is the person who guides the employee even after completing the training. They are those who give advice on different approaches to work-related cases, share their experience, answer and explain side technological questions, etc.
In addition, each team has a team leader/project manager who is responsible for the trainee’s career development. They have an active role during every attestation, they continue monitoring the progress of the employee and they also contribute to the overall motivation and productivity of the team.
What are the main technologies used in the company?
What benefits does Sirma provide as additional benefits to its employees and what makes it an employer of choice?
The most important benefit for our employees is being part of our family. For 31 years at Sirma, we have been one big family that makes sure everyone feels good at work, integrated into the team, and fond of the company.
We realize how dynamic is the field we work in, so we give our employees a variety of opportunities for personal development. For example, the change of the project is a practice we always apply when someone needs a change. Also, our employees can always work from our offices around the country or simply from their homes, if they desire a change of working environment. Despite the ability to work from home our offices are always full. This is due to the great company culture that we have, which is enhanced by the daily initiatives of our Happiness Manager. She makes sure we are never bored with themed parties every week, delicious breakfasts and lunches, team-building initiatives, and socially responsible activities.
Of course, our employees are entitled to 25 days paid vacation, additional health and dental insurance, a “Multisport” card, and many more benefits.
