interview Platform DevelopmentSugyeong Jeong

I'm in charge of
LINE Games' platform
and web service development.
Q. What's your team's role?
The platform team develops and operates all platform and web services provided by LINE Games. Not only do we provide the systems required in games, such as login and billing, we also work on web technologies, such as the company website, community sites, game event pages, live ops tools, and in-house systems.

Q. What is your role in the team?
I usually develop billing and related systems. The billing system controls the usage of in-game hard currency and transactions, so it's critical to monitor and develop the system carefully.

Q. What does a normal day at work look like?

Our work schedule is pretty flexible, so I come into the office around 11 AM. First, I check the metric data of games that are currently in service to make sure there aren't any issues. Then I check my email and JIRA tasks to organize my workload for the day. I usually start programming after lunch.
Love and passion.
Q. What are some skills and qualities required for the job?
I think you need "passion" to learn and "love" for the work you do. The number of platforms is increasing along with the required knowledge to adapt to them. We need to work on a variety of services; therefore, we need "passion" to learn and "love" for the work we do.

Q. What kind of personality is appropriate for the job?
You should like this work and not be afraid of working with people. The nature of the work requires tons of communication with other teams. If you are a people person with great communication skills, you'll be a good fit for the job.

Q. What do I need to prepare to apply for this role?
The platform team works with various developers. Due to the nature of the team's work, we work on common services that apply to all kinds of games. It is important for us to have passion and the tirelessness to work on repetitive tasks.

I want to create a game
everyone enjoys with LINE Games.
Q. Why choose LINE Games?
I chose LINE Games because I believed that I can grow with the company. When I first joined the company, NextFloor had just merged with LINE Games. I had to prepare for the sudden growth of the company and various services. That was the main reason I believed that I could continuously grow alongside the company.

Q. Any cool places at the LINE Games office? (Company café, Massage room, etc.)
I think the in-house café is the place to be. Recently, the café was renovated, so people can now enjoy Playstation, play darts, etc.

We are waiting for you.
Q. What type of colleagues would you like to work with?
I hope it's someone who can enjoy working with us. A passionate person who can enjoy gaming, working at the company, and growing together with us.

Q. Any advice for applicants?
I still have a lot to learn, but working with great colleagues is truly great. People who want to demonstrate their abilities and grow with the company should apply.
