Part 1: Welcome to One2N

First of all, welcome to the team! We are glad to have you join us.
Since most of us are remote, we want you to ensure you do not feel alone in your initial days in the company. This part of the playbook is a good guide to understanding life at One2N.

0️⃣ Before you join

Before you join, you will receive an appointment letter from our People Operations team. As a first step, you need to submit a signed copy of the document for our records.
You will also receive communication regarding your first day, such as when you should log in/reach the office, whom to connect to, etc.
Additionally, the team will reach out for details such as
  • T-shirt size,
  • Current address for correspondence and
  • Any hardware requirements, e.g., Laptop, Type C adapter, etc.
You will receive the hardware and a welcome kit from us before your joining date. If you are in Pune, these will be handed over to you in person. If you are remote, we will ship these to you and share the shipment tracking id. You can let us know when you receive the items.
When we ship the laptop to you, please keep the box and original packaging as it is. Don’t throw away the packaging. You will need it if you have to ship the laptop back to us for repair or if you decide to leave the company.

1️⃣ On your first day

Your first day will likely start a bit late, around 11 am. Pradnya Joshi will be your point of contact for policies and people operations at One2N. She will walk you through primary onboarding formalities, such as creating your One2N email id and Slack accounts, document submissions, team introductions, etc. For the One2N email, set up 2-factor authentication when you log in.
For the Technical roadmap, Chinmay/Jaideep will be your main point of contact. We will rope in other team members from One2N as needed.
If you are remote, setting up a designated work space helps to demarcate the work area from other living areas at home.
For your 1st month, you will be assigned a buddy from the One2N team. The buddy is your go-to person to ensure you don’t feel isolated at One2N in the early days. Please feel free to ping or call the buddy anytime to find something out. In due time, we will invite you to be a buddy to a new person, and you can pay it forward. 😇
It does take time for any new joiner to understand the new culture and environment, especially when remote. To help you settle down, we take things slow in the first week. We encourage you to ask questions, talk to teammates, and simply reach out.
