A Progressive Culture

“I really enjoyed the culture of intellectual curiosity at Carousell. Asking hard questions and suggesting alternatives is something that’s welcomed here, even across teams and across all levels of seniority. Plus, you’ll never hear “Because that’s the way we do it” as an answer to “why?” at Carousell.”

Ari Bezman, Senior Product Manager

Ownership of Projects

“As a newbie, I wasn’t used to the autonomy you get here but I found this trust empowering as it gave me a strong sense of ownership over my work. The responsibility and accountability greatly contributed to my growth and I don’t know if I would’ve developed so quickly anywhere else.”

Rachelle Yee, Growth Marketing Executive

Career Growth

“When I started as an engineer here, I helped to build the product by coding it. Now as a senior manager, I get to help build the team by imparting knowledge to the new engineers and helping to develop their talent. When I look back, it definitely feels like I’ve gotten a lot of opportunities to grow.”

Victor Neo, Senior Engineering Manager

Work-life harmony

“They say that when the going gets tough, the tough gets going! Things in a startup like Carousell can get pretty hectic, but work-life harmony is definitely achievable when your work involves mid-day ping pong showdowns and evening basketball matches before getting back to the grind.”

Serena Darcel, Legal Counsel

Diverse Community

“I love the fact that Carousell is so international! We have something like 20 countries represented in the office right now. My boss is Lithuanian, I’ve got colleagues on the product team from places like Taiwan, France, USA, Singapore and my closest friend – AKA ‘my brother from another mother’ – is Indian. It feels great being part of a global village!”

Alla Berdnikova, Product Manager

Flexible work arrangements

“The flexible timing at Carousell enables me to come in early and leave early as I have to pick up my son from school. The team is very understanding and co-operative, and they respect my timings and role as a mother outside of the office. In fact, I was overwhelmed when I received flowers on Mother’s Day – it means so much to me and makes me feel really special here.”

Ruchika Rawat, Senior Quality Assurance Engineer

Comfortable Environment

“They say office life means strict dress codes and all, but here my body loves my daily t-shirt and shorts outfit! When you’re drained from coding, it’s great to be able to relax at the pool table (especially when you’re undefeated like me). The open office also means I can flow over to my favourite couch in the engineering library area and brush up my tasks in comfort.”

Denis Sakhapov, Software Engineer

Flat hierarchy

“I remember as an intern, I was too scared to share opinions around my bosses. However, I quickly learned that these same people welcomed all kinds of ideas and alternative viewpoints, and everyone is treated as an equal – even the co-founders! This gave me the confidence to voice out during brainstorm sessions and approach anyone with my ideas at anytime.”

Isma Nabila, Digital Marketing Executive

Making a difference

“I love that Carousell has helped so many people in the community become sellers and buyers – it’s like whenever my friends want to declutter, they usually go straight to Carousell even if they don’t know I work here. It’s such a great feeling that you’re involved in a service that helps so many people!”

Sense of impact

“You can get a sense of the growing number of people using our app from the numbers at our weekly team meetings. But you can really see for yourself, with your own eyes, just how much we’ve impacted the community when you keep seeing the people around you on the train and on the street browsing our app!”
