Symphony Solutions at Codefest and BEST Job Fair

In the previous two weeks we had a chance to participate and present Symphony Solutions at two amazing events – Codefest in Ohrid, Macedonia, and BEST Job Fair in Lviv, Ukraine.

CodeFest is an international tech festival which is held every year in April and gathers in one place global tech and innovation leaders, companies and individuals who are into tech. The Festival consists of three tracks:
• Codeference – an international tech start-ups conference with guest speakers from all over the world, targeting audience both from the start-up and the investment world;
• Codefest Marathon – an event where teams of tech students from Macedonia and the region have the chance to work on their own tech ideas from scratch. The goal is to develop a demo or a prototype of their idea within 32 continuous hours;
• CFX – Business Expo – during all three days of Codefest companies that are interested can set up their own booth to showcase their work and connect with young tech enthusiasts.

CodeFest is a very popular event. This year, CodeFest took place in Ohrid, Macedonia, from 20 to 22 April. From 2013 to 2017 the festival had over 700 participants; 52 companies as sponsors and partners, 165 produced projects, and over 20 different nationalities visiting and participating in different events.

The three-day festival was filled with many new encounters with friendly people, exchange of knowledge and experiences, and lots of laughs. We had a great time being there, and are very happy we had a chance to meet so many wonderful people who were eager to share their stories with us and openly expressed interest in joining Symphony Solutions.

Similarly, at BEST Job Fair in Lviv, out stand at Lviv Polytechnic got a lot of attention. Young tech-enthusiast and professionals could get to know some of our recruiters and developers, discuss what it’s like to be Symphonians, enjoy the VR presentation, and got a lot of freebies.

BEST Job Fair is an event, organized by BEST (Board of European Students of Technology), that helps to connect young tech and IT talents with the leading companies in the industry. During the two days, tech students and young professionals had a chance to get to know and connect with some of the best companies in the industry, learn about their work and projects, and find suitable internships and job opportunities.
Each year, the event grows in popularity. So far, over 3,500 students have attended Career fair, and over 30 companies have participated while offering internships and jobs at the same time.

Everyone that stopped by our stand at both events – CodeFest and BEST Job Fair – could get a glimpse inside our company culture, feel the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The recruiters were there to explain life inside Symphony, application and interview processes, perks and benefits we offer, and answer any other company-related questions. Additionally, the developers were there to explain their work on projects, programming languages they use on each project and why, and share their professional experience and learning and growth possibilities inside the company.

Our participation in both tech events was very fun and exciting. We truly enjoyed meeting each and every one that came by to say hello, talk about Symphony, and the job opportunities we offer.

We are looking forward to being there next year and meeting even more wonderful tech and IT people.
