'Ding Without Borders' is a series where our team share their experiences of life abroad, and how they stay connected with loved ones back home.

This time, we chat with Jahid. He did not move abroad for work but he is at our office in Bangladesh and he has a lot to tell about his experience at working from home for Ding, very far away from headquarters!

Meet Jahid 👋 Our Junior Accounts Analyst in Dhaka! 

Jahid started to work in Ding 2 years ago in the Dhaka office, and now he is working 2 days a week in the office and 3 days from home!

Where were you born and where did you grow up?

I was born and grew up in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh.

Could you tell us a little bit about your country?

Bangladesh is amazing! It is located in Southern Asia in the Bay of Bengal. Bangladesh has flat plains, and most of the country is situated on deltas of large rivers flowing from the Himalayas. Different cultures and religions live together in harmony. We celebrate six seasons in Bangladesh!

Is moving to another country for work on your bucket list of things you would like to do at any time soon?

Definitely! Working in a different country and culture is on my bucket list. If I get the opportunity after the pandemic, I would love to visit Dublin to meet my Irish colleagues. I hope I can do it very soon!

You go to the office a couple of days per week and stay at home the rest of the week. How are you finding it so far?

During the lockdown, we worked from home for more than one and a half years. It was our new normal and I got used to it. But after a long time, I was so excited to return to the office 😊 It makes me feel closer to my colleagues, who are also my friends. In the Ding Dhaka office, we are all like a big family, and meeting them after so long was comforting and joyful.

What is your experience working with Ding? 

I am happy to say that I am blessed to be part of Ding. Ding is like a second home to me. Working in Ding feels like I am supported to achieve my maximum potential and my manager, lead or even colleagues help me to grow.

Some of the members of your team are in the Dublin office. Did you find any challenges when working away from them?

My team is currently working from Dublin & Dubai offices. We all live in different parts of the world, but we always feel connected. We do video conferences and chat every day. We work as a team and we all support each other.

What do you love the most about working at Ding?

I love Ding culture and my colleagues. We are all different and come from many countries but we all fell connected under one big umbrella. Ding joins everyone in one platform, today I can collaborate on a project with people from one part of the world, and the next day it can be a person from the completely another side of the globe!
