My name is Filip. I live in a beautiful historical city of Belgrade, Serbia in the heart of south-east Europe (fans of basketball, tennis or Nikola Tesla may be familiar with our country).
I started writing on Hacker Noon recently and I have a really interesting back story to share.
I started learning how to code when I was 12 I enrolled in Information Technology High School and really soon I came out as one of the best developers. Soon we started doing many different apps at a young age, and when I reached the age of 16 (legal age to start working in Serbia) I “left” school (I switched to a program which requires no attendance) to work full time as a software developer.
That escalated quickly because I was more than ready for the industry but I found that I’m more a visionary than an engineer. So I started learning everything needed in fields of the tech business, digital economics, marketing etc.
Fast forward 2 years, I’m now finally an adult, and I have expanded my professional career far more than I expected. I work in the field of Digital Transformation and Innovations.
- I’m a member of TeleGroup Innovation. A 4-man team within TeleGroup system that is consulting Serbian companies how to prevail in the digital economy, delivering innovative business models as a result of our work (like Banks, Insurance companies, Food producers, Retailers…).
- I work with a Serbian startup PetMe as a Head of Technology and Business Development. I oversee everything related to the development of business and platform.
- I’m in process of the founding of an Innovation consulting and R&D company called InGrowth supporting new innovation management methodology I’m working on.
- On Hacker Noon I write about Digital Transformation and Innovation topics.
And yes I have just 18 years. I’m always open to chat, to work, to partner up or hang up with people for all around the world. If you want to discuss any topic or to connect with Serbian tech community (of which I’m an active member) I’m here.
We can talk here, on chat or you can reach on firstname.lastname@example.org
Nice day to all.
