About us

WealthPark is a startup IT venture to provide asset management and management platform application.
Currently, we are taking on the challenge of “visualization” of non-liquid assets in the real estate industry, which is one of the alternative assets.

WealthPark closed JPY 540 million in Series A financing in May 2019, JPY 907 million in Series B in August 2020, and JPY 2.5 billion from JIC Venture Growth Investments, bringing the total amount raised to JPY 4.398 billion.

Mission

WealthPark’s mission is to build an alternative asset platform through innovation and entrepreneurship and ownership.

 

 

Context

Fujii, the VP of Front End, has been concurrently serving as the Leader of Front End until now.

However, with the expansion of the organization and departments, the amount of time that he can devote to the Front End has been relatively decreasing.

In addition, as we continue to talk about products and design systems, the front-end needs to develop more as a team. In this context, we are looking for someone who can lead the FrontEnd organization.

 

 

The Person We Are Looking For

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.
On the other hand, WealthPark expects its leaders to be involved in development as a member of the Cross-Functional Team, without being 100% dedicated to management.
For more information on the expectations of leaders, please refer to the Chapter Lead section of the following blog.

 

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.
