NHN Competency Training

Competency training is provided through various programs to help trainees when performing work by acquiring the competencies and skills required for each level and position.
It is composed of courses customized for each level, team leaders or for those who have been promoted.
The course aims not only to improve one’s competency and work skills but also to form networks through various networking activities during training.

Technical Training
  • Technical Course for Rookies

    NHN runs a 9-week base camp course for the Rookies to understand the company's development process, experience sound development culture, in order to adapt well to work.
    The Rookies grow exponentially in a short period of time by having to experience the cycle of one service throughout planning/design/development/QA process and improving it through refactoring step by step.

  • Developer Growth Program

    We conduct a technical training course to improve the technical competency of the technical teams and hold seminars with external instructors to share technologies in various fields and the latest trends. We are operating ‘Talk Day’ program for sharing technology application experiences and troubleshooting process in various tasks.


    Under the banner of 'Small Steps Big Difference', NHN has been holding an annual conference since 2018 to share key technologies and experiences of each business division. It is designed to promote communication with external developers through technology.
    Unlike other technology conferences aimed to promote the company's business and technological achievements, it focuses on sharing the know-how of solving problems that developers actually face in the field.

Welfare NHN applies a flexible working system for all employees, and every Wednesday is a ‘work-from-home’ day tailored to each employee’s situation so that he/she could focus more efficiently on work.
NHN strives to ensure non-discriminatory hiring by making it impossible to identify the gender at the time of recruitment from the job application form until the coding test.
The bi-annual evaluation is a multi-faceted evaluation collecting the opinions of various anonymous colleagues for an unbiased assessment. Since 2014, we have held a family invitation event called “We Family!” every May. The event in 2020 has been participated by 1,300 families. The employment retention rate after maternity leave in 2019 and 2020 stands at 100% as we encourage our employees to actively use maternity and parental leave.
