How long have you been at Citrix?
It has been 3.5 months since I joined Citrix.
What has been your favorite part about Citrix?
I feel very excited to be at Citrix. Given the ongoing pandemic, safety and security are of paramount importance for everyone. The fact that I am working for a company that provides remote working solutions and helps people do their jobs efficiently while being safe and secure brings me immense pride. The remote working solutions of Citrix are changing the landscape of seamless smart working across the globe with their efficacy, utility and value addition. I feel extremely rewarded being a part of this transformative process which Citrix is bringing about.
What is your current position and a brief overview of what you do?Presently I am working as a Software Engineer Intern in the Citrix Content and Collaboration (ShareFile) team at Bengaluru, India. As an Intern, I have been assigned the task of a critical security vulnerability that currently exists. This task involves quite a lot of brainstorming and interaction with my team members. It’s still in progress as of now. But the fact that in spite of being an intern, I am not being treated any different from the permanent employee makes me very happy. This is a place where my voice is heard and I get to contribute significantly. As we're all working from home at the moment, I haven't met my team mates in person. In spite of that, they make me feel welcome and treat me as an inherent team member. Not to mention the positive acknowledgement and feedback I receive from my teammates they encourage me to strive higher. I feel very privileged to be a part of the Citrix family.
What you enjoy doing outside of work to help personalize your story for the upcoming Citrites? Outside of work, I enjoy playing keyboard and painting. I also read books on a regular basis. And I absolutely love travelling as well! Exploring new places and gaining new experiences and insights is the perfect catalyst for happiness for me.
If you could vacation for free in any city or country for 10 days, where would you go? This is quite a tough question! I think I would go with New York City. This might sound quite odd, but to me, New York City is like the center of the whole world. It’s a perfect culmination of culture, music, fashion, commerce, art, infrastructure, technology, education you name it. The constant feeling of hustle fascinates me a lot. It’s one of the most happening places on earth and the fact that I could live here, for free, for 10 days is like a dream come true for me. Also, I’ve heard that the food over here is quite exquisite and for a foodie like me, this is quite irresistible as well! Visiting New York seems like stepping into a whole new world and the prospect of waking up in a “city that never sleeps” for 10 full days is something that I would love to experience at least once.
