Reading Time: 3 minutes

“Our task is not to grow a company, but to build an entire new category of buying”

In October 2016, Great Place To Work® invited nearbuy.com to participate in a survey that involved the entire workforce to submit responses. And Voila! We’ve been informed that we are 1 among India’s Great Mid Size Workplaces 2017 in India. Having achieved this milestone, we at nearbuy.com are proud to tell you the best cited reasons why we are an awesome workplace.

Respect, Ownership & Performance – nearbuy’s Success Mantra

With a foundation built on these 3 important values, we have a nearbuy’s Little Book of Big Things specially compiled for all NBees. This book defines who we are, what we do and why we do what we do; here is a snippet from the book

Ankur Warikoo: CEO & nearbuy’s Centerstone

Having been listed in 2013 and 2014 as Fortune Magazine’s Top 40 CEOs under 40, Ankur gives you life and career goals. Ankur makes his work seem like cakewalk, be it heading the Marketing & HR team or having lunch with an employee everyday. Mondays are reserved for 5-Bullet Mondays where he shares his life experiences over the week, a brief review about a book he’s reading, a TED talk that inspired him or even some fun activity he thinks we should take up. Through the week, he interacts with different teams and provides inputs for different projects. Never failing to crack us up with his wit, he’s always sharing voice notes or teaming up to prank a colleague – a master of all trades.

At nearbuy.com, we strongly believe a good manager is a good leader. Our leaders have a no-holds-barred approach when it comes to dealing with every NBee’s opinion. We love exchanging ideas and everyone from the CEO to your reporting manager sits alongside the rest.

We ensure that all new hires at nearbuy.com are able to gel quickly with the confident & quirky set of employees we have onboard.
