Event description
What are the cool tech guys everyone wants to hire really looking for?

About this Event

What “office environment” are IT engineers and developers looking for when choosing an employer? Are the cool guys who everyone wants to hire really so interested in the lounge area of the office or there’s something more they are looking for?

“Talent Talks” is a series of events Trending Topics starts to demystify the myths around what top talents in the tech sector are actually after. Is a senior react developer going to join and stay in your company because there is PlayStation and free beer? Is that what is advertised to them? Are these the CEO needs to build a great company? There’s definitely a bit of a misunderstanding here.

And then again, the local market is flooded with junior talent with unrealistic expectations and job hoppers who’ve just entered the market and switched three companies in a year to get seniority (on CV) and 300 BGN more. Is that the right mindset to grow talent in a small economy where companies need to act coordinated and really develop the best possible talent? The short answer is NO.

And so, we invite mid-level and senior developers to talk about what they really want and expect, what drives them when starting in a new company. Beyond the perks, beyond “but in the Valley, they would offer me sleeping capsules, free food, and massages”.

Who is this event suitable for:

  • Tech talents who want to be better versions of themselves or are just sick of bullshit.
  • Recruiters who want to be more effective.
  • Everyone who’s been annoyed by the way the tech sector works with talents.

Panelists:

  • Vassil Popovski, Vice President of Product Development at Leanplum
  • Rossen Genchev, Founder and CEO at Bioseek
  • Boyan Bonev, CTO at Gaida.ai

Agenda:

  • 18:30 open doors
  • 19:00 panel discussion
  • 20:30 networking & drinks
  • 21:30 no one wants to go
