The company has opened its doors wide to hire 200 Graduate Freshers in various teams.
The new office of aglasem.com is in Gurgaon Sector 30, on NH 8. “We were operating in Delhi for some years, when on the suggestion of a close friend, we decided to open a corporate office in Gurgaon. It was one of our best decisions!”, AglaSem co-founder Anand says. He adds, “The corporate culture in this place is very conducive to building a team, which we are focused on right now. Metro connectivity, safety for employees, were our top priorities when we zeroed in on this location last year when we started operations in Gurgaon.”
Today the company works primarily from Gurgaon and it recently moved to a larger office to accommodate the growing team and make room for more team members which the HR department is aggressively trying to bring on board.
As soon as one steps into the office, the energy in the air is noticeable. Most of the team members are quite young. However, senior members and leaders are spread across and can be seen mentoring one on one.
While there is a palpable buzz of activities at the workstations, meeting rooms, conference, some members can be seen chilling in the cafeteria or sparring over ideas in the brainstorming room. The YouTube room also has an ongoing shooting.

All the rounds help the company understand the candidate better and vice versa. Arunima who leads the content team at AglaSem throws some light on what she looks for in her team members. “I always ask them these questions; Do you write for yourself? Do you read? Why do you want to be a writer in the education sector? It is very important that the person has a flair for writing.”
