In our #InsideAT series we regularly present new new employees. Today it's Franzi Schropp's turn. She starts with us as HR Manager - in the interview she tells us how she came to AT, what her background is and how she likes to spend her and how she likes to spend her life outside of work.
Which position are you taking on at AT?
I start as HR Manager at AT
How did you hear about AT come to your attention?
A friend sent me the job posting and said AT and I would be a good match.
Why did you Why did you choose AT?
I find data science super exciting and AT works on very interesting and innovative projects. In addition, the corporate culture and the team suit me very well.
What are you are you looking forward to the most?
Here's to exciting tasks, lots of new things to learn and great colleagues!
What did you done before?
I was HR Manager at TrustYou (online reputation management software) with a focus on tech recruiting (data and product), but within 3.5 years I also took on many other HR tasks.
Where were you born and raised?
Born in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and grew up in Klais, nobody knows it, but it's between Mittenwald and Garmisch-Partenkirchen 😉
What do you do in your free time?
All things mountains, I like mountaineering and skiing/touring in winter. I recently did my first high altitude tour and there will definitely be more to come. Apart from that, I'm learning programming, I'm always on the lookout for good (craft) beer and I like to pretend I'm a trail runner (because that's cool now) but so far the altitude gains are still very slow.
What was your your dream job as a child?
I always wanted to be a writer, but the book I wrote when I was 12 surprisingly didn't become a bestseller (maybe because it only had 20 pages).
What is your favourite film?
I have a somewhat unhealthy obsession with horror films and am always happy to receive recommendations!
Which book did you read last?
The Silmarillion on holiday, for the second time.
What would would you get up in the middle of the night for?
