Started in August 2012, Carousell Group began in Singapore and now has a leading presence in eight markets under the brands Carousell, Mudah, Chot Tot and OneKyat, serving tens of millions of monthly active users. Carousell Group is backed by Telenor Group, Rakuten Ventures, Naver and Sequoia Capital. Our mission is to inspire every person in the world to start selling and buying to make more possible for one another.

Carousell’s product managers lead this exciting mission by redefining what online classifieds can be—smart, convenient and community-focused. We constantly look at data and talk to our users to understand what they’re doing, thinking and feeling along their user journey and empathise with their needs. This user-centric approach guides us in crafting the best user experiences.


Seller Experience

Our vision is for a world where selling and buying secondhand is a natural first choice for everyone. The Seller Experience team sits at the core of our vision, constantly thinking about how we might inspire more people to sell their under-utilised items, and how we might encourage existing sellers to sell more. As we are a 2-sided horizontal marketplace, the team often needs to be mindful of any implications on the buyer experience, which will in turn affect seller success. At the same time, the team balances between solving specific problems in focus categories and generalising solutions across categories to create a coherent product experience.
