Carmen Shing


Carmen is somewhat of an international woman of mystery. Born in Vancouver, raised in Hong Kong, studied in Vancouver, worked in Hong Kong and now has settled in Vancouver.

Graduating with a Commerce degree from UBC, Carmen was originally an auditor but decided to trade crunching numbers for creating code when she realized she wanted something more exciting and challenging in her day-to-day job. She took the web development bootcamp at Lighthouse Lab to aid in her career change and now here she is, a Developer at Goat.

When Carmen is not working, most of the time she is thinking about food. Her favourite meal would be having omakase with a nice bottle of sake. Her motto is good food, good drinks, good company, equals a good time :)

Naturally gifted with languages, Carmen can speak English, Cantonese, Mandarin, Shanghainese, some Japanese, and some Korean. She is also a beginner in Jiu Jitsu.

She has a beautiful cat named August who is almost as clingy as most dogs.
