About Alex

What led you to a job at Zipline Interactive?
I moved with my family from Europe to the US. I tried my hand in several different domains, but was always looking for something interesting in IT. I found an ad for a developer position at Zipline Interactive and was invited to an interview, then hired.

Do you believe Al Gore invented the Internet?
No.

What is your favorite part of working in digital advertising?
Every day brings something new – different tasks, new technologies, new people, new projects…

Outside of digital advertising, what is your dream job?
Air Traffic Controller. I worked as an ATC for 5 years before moving to the US. This is really hard but incredibly interesting work. You can make a huge amount of plans during aircraft management but any second something unpredicted can happen; this makes every day unique and interesting.

What is your favorite thing about working at Zipline?
Every day you start your work having a plan of what to do first, second…  and then someone comes to you and says, "This is urgent."  You are trying to help other people and complete your tasks at the same time. This is really interesting and I never get bored.

What do you do when you’re not at work? 
I spend as much time with my wife and young daughter as I can. I also like to watch an interesting soccer game. Sometimes I play computer games.

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
I have done a lot of interesting things, but one that I didn’t expect from myself is that I had left my previous life with relatives, friends, and work to move to the US.

What is something most people don’t know about you?
I really like jokes and humor, especially dark humor.

What is your favorite TV show or movie?
For movies, all MARVEL films, Lord of the Rings, and Pirates of the Caribbean. For TV shows, I like Game of Thrones, Prison Break, The Blacklist, Breaking Bad, and 12 Monkeys.

Who is your idol?
I don’t have an idol, but I admire people who know what they want and are not afraid to follow their desires.
