The Shopee HQ in Singapore is collocated with its parent company, Garena, at Galaxis in Fusionopolis.

The online social marketplace reached US$1.8b in annualised GMV (Gross Merchandise Volume) in November 2016.

That’s huge for a young startup that’s less than 2 year’s old.

For gamers & online shoppers – ever wondered what it’s like behind the scenes of gaming company Garena & its subsidiary Shopee? Here’s a part of the company‚Äôs office in Singapore which houses the combined staff of 500-odd employees working in an open office concept.

Anyway, the office looks as new and inviting as it looked when I first visited half a year ago when the company first moved in.

A revisit to the bunk beds for employees and the massage room beside this (not in this photo) where a full-time masseuse is on standby every day to give staff a rub down.

Shopee was soft-launched in seven countries in June, 2015 and officially launched in Singapore in November, 2015.
