|Well sometimes we used to sleep!|
This opportunity was given to me about a year ago have never repented it even once. Working on couches creating and learning new things every day makes you feel amazing.
The journey starts about a year back when being highly irritated from my previous employer i decided to look out for new jobs being a crazy job applier (i like to call myself this) :P. Came this opportunity a company i never heard of. Anyway being a crazy one i clicked the apply button with my resume and recruiterbox an unlikely place for applying jobs a year ago i must say.
Got shortlisted for the first round where i had to fill a questionnaire 40-50 questions long okay i am not kidding here it felt like a gigantic task anyway i filled it in parts while having lunch and by dinner i was done :P
I got a call and had a skype interview and an on site interview rest is history. Well this is how Mxit happened to me. My boss was one of kind awesome boss which everyone would love to have. He regarded us as an integral part of the organisation. No Indian boss i think can be as cool as he is sharing his knowledge and giving you ample space to grow and at the same time motivating you to take challenging assignments.
Every week we went for movies, enjoyed together and worked even more harder, being in a new city away from family all this made it less complicated and much more fun then you could ever imagine. Life happened.
Mxit has given me something that i could have never had in a big corporate the chance to experiment, a chance to grow and open up even more.
Start ups are all about being your self, opening up various dimensions about your personality, you have to do everything on your own here don't expect to be spoon fed.
You learn more, you strive more here cause every day you are thrown a new challenge a new deadline a new assignment.
You get a first hand experience of what it is like building a company from ground up and seeing the numbers grow every day makes you proud of yourself and keeps you motivated.
