Nika Horvat

Project Manager Team Lead

My story

After finishing culturology and economics studies, I needed only 10 days to find an Erasmus internship position, rent an apartment and buy a plane ticket to London, where I planned to stay for four months. However, after the internship was over, I stayed for another three years, promoting and distributing contemporary African art. I then returned home, obtained a Master’s Degree in Marketing Communication and Public relations, and ended up in my first advertising agency. I then switched sides for a few years, joining an in-house marketing team, only to now return to managing projects in my favourite field – the IT industry.

They asked me …

A highly underestimated skill?

“Easy to work with”. Communicating respectfully, showing understanding and being ready to help and work in a team. I think this should be emphasized in every CV.

Why Optiweb?

Because of an amazing energy and the vision of its management. And because of the many successful projects as well as because of respectful communication and transparency. And because of the challenge.

What are you grateful for?

For my wonderful social circle, the people that make me laugh, cry and everything in between. Along with health, relationships deserve the most of our energy and time. They are paramount for success – in business as well as in private life.

Waking up at 5 AM, having a great coffee and then ascending at least 2000 metres above sea level. In the winter.
