In our #InsideAT series we regularly present new employees. Today it's Alex Sinchenko's turn. He starts with us as a (Senior) Key Account Manager - in the interview he tells us what drove him to it, what his background is and how he likes to spend his life besides work.
What position will you take on at AT?
I will become a (Senior) Key Account Manager.
How did you become aware of AT?
Through a recommendation with key data on the culture, the job and the growth potential.
Why did you choose AT?
I wasn't actively looking for a job, but the range of tasks, the freedom to help shape things and the data science / AI environment made my ears prick up - these were the decisive points for the change.
What are you looking forward to the most?
Customer meetings, very competent colleagues and the opportunity to learn a lot.
What did you do before?
Business Development/Sales Development for a software company specialising in process automation.
Where were you born and raised?
Born in Kazakhstan, moved to Germany at the age of 6 and then grew up in Hof (Bavaria).
What do you do in your spare time?
That's when I'm terribly boring. Besides the usual suspects (travelling, friends, reading, watching films and series), I spend too much time gaming, listening to podcasts and debating.
What has been your favourite travel destination so far and where would you definitely like to go?
Belarus, I have a strange affinity for Eastern Europe. I really want to travel to Russia, if possible through the whole country.
What was your dream job as a child?
In Kazakhstan, a rubbish driver. Then I didn't know what I was doing for a long time. In fact, however, I am very satisfied with my career so far - even though my horizons have broadened.
What is your favourite film / series?
Spontaneously, it would be Se7en, but I have too many...
What was the last book you read?
The Posthumous Memoirs of Bras Cubas, Machado de Assis
What used to be your favourite subject at school?
History and religion.
What would you get up for in the middle of the night?
Talking to customers, of course! ?
