Let's talk - At alugha, Daniel gives advice and is always right!
Daniel Kilian - Legal & HR
Briefly introduce yourself: Who are you and what are you doing?
My name is Daniel, and as a freelancer at alugha I’m responsible for HR and all legal affairs. I’m the “killjoy” [quote Bernd ;-) ] and take care of, for example, that the guys & gals here don’t simply fly their drone into the city center without getting proper insurance and a permit in advance. ;-)
Which three keywords describe you best ?
Balanced, sarcastic, TV series junkie.
What is your favourite thing to do in your free time?
I like being outside in the nature and I like to eat well, so I combined those two and got a hunting license years ago. Since then, I have spent a lot of time hunting, building deer stands, and doing everything that has to be done in the hunting district, and in the evening, I look forward to a delicious dish of wild game. For me, this is the ideal balance to the office job - no mobile phone, no screen, no mails - instead, ax & chainsaw and then peace and fresh air :-) And when it creeps up to me and I need a change, I go into a metal bar to clear my mind.
What guided you to alugha?
I met Bernd at a joint project a few years ago, and after alugha had made some progress, my phone rang one day, and he asked if I wanted to join in. I found the topic of multilingual videos super exciting and whoosh, I was on board.
What are your tasks and what is your impression of the work here?
Didn’t I say that already? ;-)
What do you like best about the work here?
The variety, you never know which tasks will come up.
Where do you see yourself and the company in the future?
alugha will dramatically change the online video market for producers and viewers by becoming the standard for producing and offering multilingual videos. For me, it is incredibly exciting to see one of the biggest barriers in today's globalized world beginning to crumble.
What is your own big dream?
A small ranch in the middle of the Canadian wilderness.
