About Us

Wristcheck is a holistic and pioneering watch platform that is built on transparency and trust. Our goal is to create a safe space where anyone can buy, consign, or simply learn about watches.

  • Coordinate and communicate seamlessly with multiple stakeholders (Product Managers, Designers, Front End Developers) to understand how to interface backend development with the rest of our ecosystem
  • Formulate a roadmap for delivering stable, well tested features on time
  • Identify areas for improvement, find and discuss solutions and provide recommendations
  • Independently evaluate new technologies and prepare them for use

  • Aspire to grow as a person, as a teammate, and as an engineer, and help others grow
