Front-End Developer for Seoul office

Are you passionate about building intuitive and beautiful user interfaces? Do you want to develop digital tools that help users design flood resilient cities and infrastructure? Do you want to help change the way high-resolution terrain data is used in city planning and flood management?

Then join our international and highly qualified team and help us further develop the front-end of the SCALGO Live platform.


SCALGO was founded to change the way we plan our cities and protect our nature by bringing advanced terrain data-processing to the market and harness the power of large-scale digital elevation data. SCALGO’s main product – SCALGO Live – is a web-based platform used by engineers, landscape architects, urban planners and biologists who work to create better and more sustainable environments with space for water.

In SCALGO Live, users can quickly explore how surface water and terrain interacts, and experiment with ways to adapt cities to climate change, restore nature, develop blue-green urban environments, and create robust stormwater management around infrastructure.

Since launching SCALGO Live in Denmark in 2016, we have expanded into 8 new countries, and we now have more than 25.000 users spanning all the Nordic countries, the UK, Germany, Poland, and France. This year, we are continuing our growth journey by launching SCALGO Live in several new countries.

The technical team consists of world leading experts in designing and implementing algorithms for analysing trillions of data elements. The multi-lingual market team consists of highly skilled engineers, planners, and marketers with deep insights into surface water planning.
