Engineering at Wealth Stack

Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team operates on two week cycles. Each cycle begins with a meeting to discuss time estimates for features organized as tickets in Jira and ends with a demo meeting where the work that was done is reviewed by the team. Engineers typically work with a UI/UX designer, as well as any other interested parties to spec a feature then work on the feature individually. We use pull requests on GitHub to conduct code reviews.

Technical Challenges

We are building a machine learning system that will pull in everyone's trading history and over time make recommendations as to how each investor can invest better.

Projects you might work on
  • The Wealth Stack platform features 100+ proprietary videos. Making those videos sharable from within the app on social media networks would be a top priority project

  • The Wealth Stack app features the trading of stocks and ETFs. Integrating into a financial news API and setting up alerts for users so they get alerts on their phone when news breaks for stocks they care about

  • The ability of users to allow other users to follow or automatically copy their investment trades
