The Optimus Family: Interning in Noida

From the moment we stepped on to the plane, there was always a looming fear of “will I fit in?” It was extremely intimidating to embark on a journey that we were both unfamiliar with. We knew that we would stand out and feel somewhat alone. However, what we thought we knew couldn’t be further from actuality as soon as we stepped off the plane.

You will always finding smiling faces on the floor.

The Noida office emphasizes the importance of developing a strong family and friend culture. When you start your first day at Optimus, you are not just a number in the system; You are a part of the Optimus family. Every morning, a friend will come to your workstation and invite you for coffee or tea. At first, we thought this was a “Welcome to Noida” initiation. However, this is just a standard, friendly gesture that we see each day; three weeks later, the hospitality remains the same. Every day, they share breakfast, gather over lunch, and cultivate a work environment of high productivity and creativity.

It is difficult to contextualize the feeling of working at Optimus through word; to truly understand, you can synthesize by imagining having a fantastic day with a group of your closest friends. To add to the fun, everybody always shares new and exciting findings to help boost the community goal of continuous learning. This environment leads to a heightened vocation, where you want to engage with more colleagues, join in on the Fun Friday Activities, and get the most out of what the job has to offer. This company culture is the foundation for building meaningful careers.

To summarize, we may look different, we may sound different, and we may tolerate spices differently, but everybody from the office accepts us for who we are. So, do we fit in? In short, we don’t. However, in an organization that promotes individuality and self-leadership, fitting in is not a primary concern. Our main goal is to feel like we belong. Luckily for us, we have never felt more at home.
