#InsideAT - Our new HR Manager Eugenia Riger

von | 11 January 2022 | #InsideAT

In our #InsideAT series we regularly present new employees. Today it's Eugenia Riger's turn. She starts with us in the position of HR Manager. In the interview, she tells us what drove her to do it, what her background is and how she likes to spend her life outside of work.

What position will you take on at [at]?

I started in the position of HR Manager. My focus is on recruiting new colleagues.

How did you find out about [at]?

A dear friend of mine told me about the vacancy in HR and since I had already heard so many good things, I just had to take my chance and apply.

Why did you choose [at]?

I find the area around the topic of AI super interesting and ubiquitous. I am convinced that this is the future and that I have found a modern and future-proof employer in Alexander Thamm GmbH. In addition, I had already learned a lot about the company through my acquaintances and knew beforehand that it would simply fit ?

What are you looking forward to the most?

What I look forward to most are the successes in the team, being challenged and encouraged, and warm summer evenings on the roof terrace.

What did you do before?

Before that, I worked as a recruiter for the world's largest recruitment company.

Where were you born and raised?

As a Russian-German, I was born in Russia, but I came to Germany as a baby and grew up here.

What do you do in your spare time?

In my free time, I love to be in the mountains. Whether it's hiking, climbing, mountain biking or motorcycling - as long as the Alps are nearby, I'm happy.

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

In late summer 2021 we packed our car and set off for a fortnight without a destination. Among other things, we drove through Slovenia and spent some beautiful days there. The nature there is very impressive.

What was your dream job as a child?

As I like animals very much, I always wanted to become a vet when I was a child.

What is your favourite film / series?

Phew, there are too many. I recently watched Arcane on Netflix, I think it's a great series.

How would you describe yourself in one sentence?

A nature enthusiast with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and adventure.

What are your three most important work utensils?

My laptop, smartphone and some snacks ?

What was the last book you read?

"Short Answers to Big Questions" by Stephen Hawking.

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

Comfortable shoes are very important to me when travelling.

What used to be your favourite subject at school?

Biology and sport interested me a lot back then.

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

For a query of the midnight formula (watch out, this one comes flat...).

What do you always carry in your pocket?

The house keys, lip balm and the FFP2 mask.
