Day in the Life

I have never been an early riser. The flextime culture at CodeNation makes sure I stay this way. On a normal day, I waltz in by 11:30. I take a look at my tasks for the day and kickstart my day into motion with a strong cuppa.

I like building stuff and solving puzzles, and my work here is no different. I have the whole space to myself with the liberty to work out of anywhere I please.

After wrapping up a few tasks at hand, I join the others for a meal. We watch some TV, chat a little, discuss the books we are reading and place requests for the kind of food we want in the pantry. Lunch is on the house and is followed by a stroll outside.

We come back and have a meeting to discuss what has been accomplished and what needs to be done. When the tasks are assigned, I have the option of choosing between a deadline of my choice or the amount of work that I am comfortable with. I choose one, they get to choose the other.

The work is a mix of intensive research to come up with solutions for difficult problems and innovative tech development to translate the solutions to code. I ask questions everyday, only to come up with the answers on my own.

I spend a little time with my career adviser, who is never out of ideas to help me with my personal growth and development, work-related or otherwise.

Between intense coding sessions, I take time out to hone my Foosball skills. Maybe, have a coffee or two if I feel the need to get rejuvenated.

I dedicate an hour everyday to learning something new, be it reading code written by the top programmers in the world or understanding the algorithms that power a hot new app.

Some evenings we have tech sessions, where managers talk about their work related experiences, protocols on which they have worked for 10 -12 years and over which they have an impressive level of expertise. As we aren't the ones doing the talking, we get to binge on pizzas.

We come together for the All Minds Meeting where we all discuss the projects we work on and seek inputs from others to improvise on our ideas. All projects have room for improvement. Collective brainstorming always helps. We all grow.

The culture here is permissive, free and easy. That added to the amount of diversity there is when it comes to everyone's individual backgrounds, often makes me feel that college never ended for me. The only difference would be the fact that I am not constantly broke and get rewarded quite handsomely for my efforts.
