Vanja is a detail orientated person who you know will keep your project on task and on budget. He always guarantees any work his team does for you. I would recommend them to anyone.Jay Beaupre | Account Executive @ Ciplex
Vanja was the sole development manager in supporting my project management team directly. Not only was he a high grade development manager, but he was completely pleasant to work with. His work ethic is unquestionable, and his ability to prioritize and maximize productivity is well above average. I look forward to continue working with Vanja for his technical expertise and communication skills on a daily basis.Jayce Tan | PMP @ Ciplex
Vanja possesses excellent negotiation and managerial skills. It is great to work with him, as he is a practical, confident, reliable and easy to work with team member, focused on both process and final result.Jelena Mickic | Publishing professional
have been working with Vanja in Implementek, for more than a year. During that time I was a Web developer while Vanja was a project manager, and later operations manager. After joining Implementek where I was already working, in short time Vanja gained the respect and confidence of the team.
What I admire the most in Vanja is his patience and correctness in working as a manager, both towards the employees and clients. For me, this has great influence on enjoyable working atmosphere in the team and my high performance and motivation. At the same time, while ensuring equality within the team, Vanja kept the authority needed to manage and direct the team.
I believe that this kind of management and communication, along with Vanja’s ability to solve arising problems efficiently resulted in many successfully finished projects, satisfied clients and happy employeesNevena Stojanovic | Interface developer @ Valtech Sweden
During my time at Implementek, Vanja was my superior. I can safely say that he is one of those rare people who can actually inspire you to work harder and bring the quality of your work to bigger heights. He is well-organized, punctual and straightforward, whilst always ready to make a joke and bring the positive work atmosphere to the desired level. These qualities translate in his ability to motivate a team to care about its project, be more professional and invested in the project’s success. The things I admire about him the most and reason I look up to him are the abilities to keep the calm attitude in hardest of times and solve the conflict by being as open and direct as possible.Slavisa Perisic | Web Developer @ YouQueen.com
