What does young India want? It’s a question that has been asked repeatedly in our youth-dominated country, and answered in several ways over time. But as more and more youngsters enter the job market every year, the more pertinent question here is: what does young India expect from their jobs?
This National Youth Day, we asked young BYJUites to break down the most exciting part of their jobs. Hear it from two proud BYJUites as they talk about their journey to BYJU’S and how they are excelling in their respective fields, every day.

Being his first job right out of college, Jyotishka Dasgupta slowly eased into his role as a Software Engineer. But once he found his footing, there was no turning back.
“I think people of my generation don’t like being restricted by rigid norms. To be able to work at a place that not only supports flexible work hours but also provides you freedom to explore all possibilities is the dream. For me, BYJU’S is just that,” says the 22-year-old.
Working to enhance the experience of parents and mentors using our learning products, Jyotishka says that the most exciting part about his role is the opportunity to experiment and innovate.
“If you have an idea, you’ll always be heard, and if it’s viable it will be implemented. I never felt that as the new and youngest member of the team, I wasn’t an integral part of it,” he says. “I believe that the support from my seniors and managers always motivates me to do better.”

Starting off as an illustrator in the Brand team, Malavika M eventually expanded her skill set to graphic design. “I only have my team and seniors to thank for this. They encouraged me to expand my skills and backed me up in taking on newer challenges. I couldn’t be happier and excited to work anywhere else” says the 25-year-old.
Drawing and sketching had always interested Malavika and choosing to be an illustrator was almost a no-brainer for her. “People around me always insisted that I join BYJU’S. I knew that my skills would be put to great use here and I would be able to enhance my skills further. And I’m glad that I was right!” says the Illustrations Executive.
“I ended up learning so much in such a short time. My portfolio has diversified and it’s all because of the scale and opportunity that everyone is exposed to here,” she adds.
Jyotishka agrees. “Whenever I’ve been stuck and reached out to someone, their response has been prompt. BYJU’S combines the fast pace of a start-up with the organisational structure of a seasoned multinational and that’s a great place to be right now,” he says.
