About the position

WealthPark is looking for a Front-end engineer who can accelerate architecture replacement with high ownership. WelthPark has 3 major expectations about this position.

  1. Person who can drive front-end development/front-end organization.

    We are looking for someone who can drive WealthPark’s front-end development, either as a senior front-end engineer or as a leader of a front-end organization. We are also looking for someone who can lead a team and manage members and offshore organizations in an expanding organization.

  2. Person who is motivated to collaborate with business/PdM/Designer

    WealthPark is a startup and communication is very important to us. While redesigning the architecture is a very important mission, we are looking for someone who can drive the discussions with the Business/PdM/Designer and drive the project forward. We are looking for people who are motivated to consider better UI/UX through communication with them and to implement them.

  3. Continuously learn new technologies and find ways to solve issues and requirements

    On the other hand, WealthPark also focuses on pursuing front-end technologies to achieve better architecture, UI/UX, maintainable code base, and good performance.

    In the front-end team, we have frequent design and technology discussions to review the overall design, and we are examining various technologies. For example, recently we have been working on Next.js and GraphQL. WealthPark is looking for people who can continue to actively catch up with new technologies.
