In 2010 Nikki left her role in IMAGE Publications to peruse a new career at Facebook. Initially starting in a sales position it wasn’t long before she fell into her gaming role, working with top gaming companies globally. With no previous gaming experience prior to this role, Nikki instantly fell in love with the gaming world working as the European Gaming Team Client Partner.
After four and a half years with Facebook Nikki felt she had built up her entrepreneurial skills and was ready to venture out on her own. Establishing Warducks in 2014 Nikki and her team now design and build games and they currently have over 50,000 active monthly users with one game logged into over 1.2 million times per month. Based in Dublin, Nikki’s plans to develop and expand her business in the future across multiple platforms. Nikki is a wonderful role model to young Irish women building their career or thinking about taking the plunge and setting up their own company.
We are delighted to have Nikki on our judging panel for the second year.
