Background

As our business expands, the number of engineers is also rapidly increasing. With the rapid increase in the number of people, the engineering team has become an organization. Such was last year.
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.
