As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marta Duic writes on the 16th of July, 2019, several days ago, a summer school started at a Croatian software company, Agency04, which is based in Zagreb, to which 582 candidates applied.

Via a selection process, 36 of them were chosen by this Croatian company and will be learning about developing a Java application using the Spring Boot Framework for the next five weeks, where they will eventually obtain a certificate, and can also apply for employment right there at Agency04.

As explained by this Croatian company which is running a summer school for the second year now, attendees will work on specific examples from Java and Spring Frameworks and see how business applications work in practice. They are divided into small teams of six people, and each team comes with two mentors.

“On the last day of the school, a hackathon is held, during which these teams compete, and at the end, the attendees receive certification and employment opportunities within our company. After we held last year’s summer school, four people gained employment with us, and we’ll continue on with this practice this year,” they state from the company.

Otherwise, this Croatian company is made up of software exprerts, and the company manages to generate more than sixty percent of its revenue on the United States and Western European markets, with special emphasis on earnings made in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, where they work for companies such as Strabag and ELCA, XebiaLabs and A1.

When it comes to new markets, this Croatian company is continuing to look close to home in Europe, with the British, Scandinavian, and Benelux countries being attractive to them. Their income, as they say, grew from an already very impressive 6.95 million kuna back in 2017, to 13.5 million kuna last year.

“We plan to employ a hundred employees in the next twelve months, so we have nine open positions for which we’re looking for staff, precisely because of the workforce, we choose projects that are technically excellent so that it’s a pleasure to participate in them.

Our clients are 75 percent overseas clients, and in turn are world leaders in their respective branches. We provide good conditions for work and life, and when you have an excellent team, then it’s easier to attract customers as well,” they say from Agency04.
