JobDescription
You will be involved in the tasks below:

(1) Development of the payment application
It is implemented by ReactNative and supports iOS and Android. In the future, in order to expand the function, they are looking for people who can understand high quality applications and suggest their own ideas through discussing with existing engineers, designers, back-end engineers, managers, and others.

(2) Development of management application for stores
It is preferred to develop a simple app for stores. Depending on the client, there can be various tasks being done. Therefore, complicated apps are not desired.
And for this reason, the company would like to create an application that can perform simple operations (transaction cancellation, sales confirmation, etc.) lightly and quickly.
Although there is already a concept for the app, there has not been any implementation yet. They're currently considering PWA to implement this due to the nature of the app.

(3) Development of SDK
They integrate the payment system with client applications and create a Software Development Kit (SDK) that makes it easy to add payment functions to the application.
They are looking for people who can assist in the development of an SDK that performs tasks such as implementing new functions and implementing QR cameras operations.

(4) Development of basic application using SDK
Some of our clients would like to create an app that cannot be easily done in terms of time and money. Therefore, they are looking for people who can use the open source SDK and implement a basic application with only basic functionality that can still perform the desired tasks.
