He joined TEN initially at junior position of Creative Digital Designer but very quickly developed his skills and knowledge that made him highly valuable to our company. While working with TEN, Nikola was responsible for design, creation and development of interactive ad campaigns. Nikola brought to us his technical knowledge and ability, which he used to extend the internal ad platform with his custom developed solutions.
