Online Open Office at SmartNews: Growth Backend Team

12:00 - 13:00 (JST)

Welcome to the SmartNews Online Open Office series! Our goal is to provide you a deeper understanding about the various teams and people at SmartNews.

This time, we’ll be visiting with the Growth Backend Team. We’ll cover things like the technical challenges they face in their work, their experiences as engineers, and much more! We will also have a Q&A session where you can ask the things you really want to know.
