What They Do
Our mission is to inspire every person in the world to start selling and buying to make more possible for one another. At Carousell, we believe that technology is an enabler to solve meaningful problems at scale. We are crafting the most seamless user experience for people to sell what they don’t need and find what they need.
We’ve got a spacious 2-level open-concept office, with plenty of spaces and meeting rooms for our teams to have discussions, a large pantry where we like to have meals together, and recreational areas to relax, shoot some pool, sing some karaoke or play some videogames.
Carousell is based in Singapore, a sunny island-city in the middle of South-East Asia. If you’ve never lived in our city before, here are some things you can look forward to: The majority of housing in Singapore comes in the form of high-rise apartments. As an expat, you have options renting an HDB flat (government-owned, public housing) or a private condominium, which usually has more amenities like private gyms, tennis courts and swimming pools.
Being a small island with limited space, rent can get expensive as you get nearer to the city centre towards the South. But you can try looking out for good deals on the city fringes or further out in the suburbs in the North, East and Westerns parts of Singapore. You don’t have to worry too much about travel time, because… Singapore is a small country, and a huge plus about living here is our wonderful transport system. Both the road network and the public transport system form an extensive and convenient web throughout the island. You have a myriad of options getting around via public transport: whether it’s by bus, MRT (our subway), or taxi services. It’s fast (you can get from one end of the island to the other in an hour), efficient, and pretty cheap compared to many other cities in the region. Private cars, on the other hand, are a bit expensive in Singapore and you want to rethink your plans if you’re thinking of getting a car here. That said, with the public transport system being so convenient, you’ll be happy getting a bus, hailing a cab or booking a Grab or Uber car.
We have a pretty amazing healthcare system in Singapore, with plenty of hospitals and clinics scattered around the island to keep our residents healthy. In fact, Bloomberg rated our healthcare system as the second-most efficient in the world in 2016! Singapore is also one of the safest cities in the world, with one of the lowest crime rates you can find worldwide.
Living in Singapore means you’ve got easy access to lots of other countries in the region. There are plenty of flights to destinations like Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Laos and Indonesia are all less than 3 hours flight from Singapore. That means you won’t need to take any additional time off to go on weekend getaways to these exotic destinations! And let’s not forget, our Changi Airport has been rated the best in the world for 5 years in a row! Not a bad home base for all you frequent travelers.
