DMM Eikaiwa is an online language-teaching platform that offers one-on-one lessons to students from around the world. We currently provide over 1 million lessons per month, making us one of the largest English schools on the internet. We produce our own teaching materials, run our own language-teaching platform, and provide the platform as a service to other educational institutions around the world.
As a company, our mission is to make online learning (and teaching) fun, easy and affordable. Although most of our students are from Japan, DMM Eikaiwa has students and teachers from nearly every country in the world. With over 10,000 private tutors, we’re one of the most effective and affordable ways to learn a new language.
We’re part of DMM.com, one of Japan’s biggest and most well-known digital companies. Our language service was launched in 2013 and has quickly become No.1 in the online English industry.
Managed by engineers
Our team is managed by engineers, who value avoiding meetings and any other unnecessary distractions. This includes making sure everyone has the best tools available, and also means making sure that people have the flexibility to work in the way that suits them best, so they can focus on building.
Small, international team
We are a small team (currently about twenty people), with members from all over the world. Communication within the team is primarily in English, although there are plenty of chances to speak Japanese as well! We believe in equality of opportunity, and value the diversity of our team in all its forms. There is always someone with a different perspective, which makes for an interesting place to work.
We all have a say in the products we make
The team includes dedicated customer support, manual testing, and sysops specialists, so engineers and designers can focus on their primary jobs. As a small team, we all have a say in the products we make, and love discussing how to improve them together—everyone can feel the impact they have personally had on our products. If you have heard the horror stories of working for big Japanese companies, don’t worry, they don’t apply to us. Instead, we offer a great work environment in the heart of Tokyo and the opportunity to build services that make a difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of language learners.
