Starting with Hacking
Tenko started his career on the internet with hacking servers and delving into the “black hat” side of the web. He realized that might not be the best area to make a career out of it and decided to go another route. He started working technical support early on for SiteGround.

Working on innovative technology, security, and managing infrastructure proved to have many speed bumps along the way.
