Carmen Chung software engineer Sydney Australia

My Story

I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Laws (with Honors) from the University of New South Wales, before working internationally as a corporate lawyer for seven years.

In 2017, I discovered my passion for coding after being awarded the Women in Tech Scholarship to study at Coder Academy in Sydney, Australia. I completed my studies with a Distinction average result before working as a full stack Software Engineer for three years at Valiant Finance and CompliSpace.

I am currently the Director of Product at Fl0. My mission is to work collaboratively with others to solve real-world problems with fresh, creative tech solutions that follow industry best practices.

Engagements & Awards

In 2020, I was selected as a Finalist in the Rising Technologist category of the Technology Playmaker Awards.

I am a big believer in sharing knowledge about engineering, product and design. I regularly write published blog posts, and have spoken at a number of large-scale tech conferences, including Web Directions Summit (Sydney 2022), ReactAU (Sydney, 2020), RubyConf (Melbourne, 2020), APIDays (Melbourne, 2019), and DDDSydney (Sydney, 2019).

In my spare time, you can find me creating digital illustrations, reading fantasy novels, volunteering to build websites for charities through Vollie, teaching stretch classes, and fostering rescue dogs.

I also write a newsletter on the latest tech products and trends that you can check out here.
