Launched in May 2013, Jumpido is the brainchild of Kiril Rusev, Nikola Kosev and Dilyan Rusev - founders of Nimero, a successful company in the educational sector.
Their dream - to deliver exceptional educational experiences to students across the world. After just two weeks in business, they received investment from LAUNCHub, a seed and acceleration fund located in Sofia, Bulgaria. This allowed the Jumpido dream to become a reality.
Kiril graduated with a master's degree in Management from the University of Leicester, United Kingdom. He has a strong technical background with over five years' experience in commercial software development. Kiril has also been working as the CEO of Nimero for the last 4 years, and is an active entrepreneur.
Nikola graduated with a master's degree in Computer Science from Sofia University, Bulgaria. He has ten years' working experience as a software engineer and a passion for all things digital. As Jumpido's CTO, Nikola is in charge of creating fun and engaging user experiences.
Dilyan graduated with a master's degree in Software Engineering from the University of St. Andrews, United Kingdom. Dilyan has developed great technical expertise working for Nimero and Telerik. As lead developer at Jumpido, it's Dilyan’s job to bring exciting ideas to life!
At Jumpido, we deliver exceptional educational experiences to children across the world. With the help of cutting-edge technology like Kinect, it's our mission to challenge the status quo in education. But to do that, we need the brightest and most innovative minds on board.
That's why we’re constantly searching for exceptional talent. Do you have what it takes to help change education?

“We recently started to work with Jumpido and I am happy to share that it has established itself as one of the preferred and most effective ways of classroom learning. We noticed significant improvement in the engagement and math skills of children. In my opinion, Jumpido is a great asset to every primary school. I strongly recommend it to anyone who is looking for ways to improve the results and the overall experience of students.”

“Regular physical activity is important for children because it helps to prevent obesity and improves energy levels. The motions that Jumpido requires have been carefully selected in order to be safe for pupils. Playing Jumpido helps children to have an active lifestyle and enjoy mathematics.”
“Jumpido represents what educational technologies should bring to the classroom - increased engagement of students, real value in terms of content and a product which is suitable for all students.”
Advisor to the Minister of Education and Science, Republic of Bulgaria
