Make a life, not just a living.

WeWork is seeking a Director to join the Global Real Estate Advisory (REA) Team, based in Seoul within our fast-growing Enterprise and Medium/Large business segments.

The Global Enterprise team is on a mission to be the leading real estate partner for the world's largest and fastest­ growing companies. In response to unprecedented demand from major global corporations, our goal is to leverage WeWork's flexible space solutions, global business community, and innovative workplace technology to revolutionize how people work. Enterprise members to date include a majority of Fortune 500 companies and name-brand growth companies spanning a variety of industries. As of 2019, ‘Enterprise’ now accounts for over a third of the Company’s run-rate sales, a figure we expect to increase significantly in the coming years. Similarly, our Medium/Large business segment is also undergoing rapid growth with similar deal demands.

Within the Enterprise and Medium/Large business, the Real Estate Advisory Team sits at the intersection of Sales, Finance, and Real Estate and is tasked with identifying and scaling new business opportunities that will drive the strategic agenda of the global business. In tandem with our Global Account Executives, REA team members will be primarily focused on executing high impact real estate transactions across our largest and fastest-growing accounts.

Team members on REA will be responsible for the financial underwriting & analysis of transactions, business development, the production of compelling deal materials for key client stakeholders (CEOs, CFOs, Heads of Real Estate), and the creation and codification of new deal structures and products. They will ultimately drive the development and direction of the business' long-term vision and strategy and execute large-scale transactions.

Our team of 60 has built a multi-billion-dollar global business in under 2 years. In Asia, we’ve grown from zero to $250 million in 6 months. This level of growth will accelerate, and you will be at the center of it.


Creative. Entrepreneurial. Client-facing. Analytical. Results-oriented. Multidisciplinary. Big picture thinker. Natural leader. Can easily distill the complex into the simple. Real estate expert. Prefers to ask for forgiveness than seek permission. Questions orthodoxy.
