About the position

As our business expands, we already have a software engineering organization with around 30 engineers. In this context, there are still areas where we are immature as an organization and where we have not yet caught up with the construction of systems. As more and more products and projects are developed, there are cases where optimal engineering management is not possible. WealthPark is looking for an Engineering Manager who can take on the challenge of creating a place where engineers can be more active.


  • Development Management
    • Management of engineering development resource allocation, development status/progress, and visualization for these things
      • Management of resources here is not about the micromanagement of the engineers here, but about whether the resources of the entire engineering organization are properly allocated.
    • Act as a contact point for the engineering side and handle the necessary communication with PDM and the business side. As a responsibility of EM, solve or support any issue that the engineering organization has to execute
    • Expect to be responsible for project management, if necessary.
  • Technical Management

  • People Management
    • Solving organizational issues
    • Goal Setting & Evaluation & Feedback system design
      • WealthPark’s maturity as an engineering organization is still in its infancy, and we need to create and improve mechanisms for goal setting, evaluation, and feedback. You will not only be responsible for goal setting and evaluation but will also be committed to building the system
    • 1-on-1 MTG with members
      • For example, we expect to understand the issues of the entire engineering organization through 1-on-1 and prepare a better environment for engineers.
  • Hiring
    • Recruit great engineers in collaboration with our HR team
    • Communicate the appeal of the company to candidates through casual interviews.
    • Interviews
  • Technical Product Management
    • Define detailed development requirements for projects that are technically complicated and hard for PDMs to define all the requirements
    • Communicate the requirements and specs to both the engineering side and the business/product side
    • Negotiate and communicate the requirements and development schedule/status with stakeholders such as a third-party vendor, a customer’s IT department, etc

  • 6+ years of development experience (organizational management period can be included.)
  • Experience with managing a multicultural team
  • Experience with hiring engineers (application screening, interviewing, etc.)
