Systems and Security Specialist at Carousell
Singapore
Carousell is driven by our mission to inspire billions to start selling successfully and consuming more consciously. Our engineering team designs, develops, and delivers the mobile and web applications and applications services which power the Carousell selling and buying experience. Ensuring that experience stays simple is challenging and Carousell engineering, along with Carousell Product, takes this challenge up on a daily basis.

The Systems and Security Specialist position is an entry-level Software Engineering position at Carousell. You are given ownership of Carousell’s IT administration, systems automation as well as information security. You are driven to automate all manual configuration tasks by applying configuration management methodology to maintain our IT infrastructure with equal or more rigour than Software Engineering - you think about automation as “Organisation as Code”. Alongside automation, you will take the lead on ensuring that both human and automated processes adhere to modern information security standards to keep our data secure and safe. You are able to apply best practices for automation and are pragmatic in choosing the right tool and technologies to solve the problem at hand.

As a Systems and Security Specialist, you want systems and processes to be transparent and inspectable and you have a passion for continual improvement and are comfortable with retrospectives and root cause analysis as demonstrated by your continual asking of “Why?” (well, at least 5 times). Joining Carousell as a Systems and Security Specialist also means that you will be the first to lead our automation and information security initiatives, and eventually grow into a role where you will oversee our efforts in Information Security (Infosec).
