from | 10 August 2021 | #InsideAT

In our #InsideAT series we regularly present new employees. Today it's Daniel Kaulbach's turn. He is starting with us as a Data Scientist - in this interview he tells us what drove him to join, what his background is and how he likes to spend his life outside of work.

What position will you take on at AT?

I start as a Data Scientist in the team at Ludwig Brummer.

How did you become aware of AT?

I first became aware of AT two years ago. As a graduate, the trainee positions caught my eye back then. That's why AT was the first company on my radar as a strong data company when I started looking for a new job this year.

Why did you choose AT?

The clear focus on data science and AI and the great experience in the field make AT very interesting for me.

What are you looking forward to the most?

I look forward to meeting my colleagues and exchanging ideas with them.

What did you do before?

In my last job, I was the only data scientist in a smaller start-up. Accordingly, I had a very broadly defined area of responsibility there, from strategy to training the models to implementation.

Where were you born and raised?

I was born and grew up in Gießen, a city that is not always visually beautiful, but as a student city is very young.

What do you do in your spare time?

I have been playing basketball for 19 years now.

What has been your favourite travel destination so far and where would you definitely like to go?

My most beautiful trip so far was to the Azores. The landscape and the clear night sky were magnificent. Someday I would like to go to the southern hemisphere to see the starry sky with my own eyes.

What was your dream job as a child?

I liked maths from a very early age and wanted to become a maths teacher.

What is your favourite film / series?

The best series by far is "Fargo". My favourite film is "Reservoir Dogs".

How would you describe yourself in one sentence?

I am helpful, responsible and keep calm even in turbulent situations.

What are your three most important work utensils?

My computer, a pen and a lot of paper to visualise my ideas directly.

What was the last book you read?

"Ministry of Dreams" by Hengameh Yaghoobifarah.

What could you definitely not do without in your travel suitcase?

To the novel I'm reading at the moment.

What used to be your favourite subject at school?

Although I was best at maths, I enjoyed politics the most at school.

What would you get up for in the middle of the night?

To watch important NBA playoffs games live.

What do you always carry in your pocket?

I always have chewing gum handy in my pocket.
