Robert Kalimullin
Project manager with deep insights

You speak eight languages, some fluently and some less fluently, which is exceptional even by kontextor’s standards. How did that come about?
I like learning new things and I travel a lot. That’s how I’ve been ever since I was a student, and nothing has changed. I have a philosophy degree and was a journalist for many years, which could be why I like to get to the bottom of things. I also love finding out how things are structured. A new language always opens up a new world.

The same thing applies to work, right?
Yes, I am definitely open to new challenges at work. Being part of a small team is ideal for this. If someone has ideas, they can try them out here. I started out as a copywriter at kontextor and now work mainly in project management. Apart from that, I oversee the development of our internal management tool, which is also kind of like a translation between programmers and users, as it were.

Do you have a favourite word? Now that you know eight languages, it must be hard for you to choose.
Öötöö – that’s Estonian for “night work”. I did a lot of that when I was a student, but since then I’ve settled into a regular schedule from 9 am to 6 pm.
