About DMM Eikaiwa

We’re the team that built iKnow, and now we’re developing DMM Eikaiwa into a language learning platform, further expanding globally as Engoo.

We put heavy emphasis on developer productivity, building fast and reliable CI tools, providing devs with all the equipment they need, and plenty of time to focus deep on tasks.

Our main language is English, and we offer a casual work environment, free Japanese lessons, remote work, and no overtime.

Even if you’re not in Japan yet, we’re happy to help you relocate.

Our response to COVID-19

As an online language learning platform, we’ve seen huge user growth and even bigger utilization during this crisis.

We’re still hiring, and open to overseas candidates who are looking to relocate to Tokyo once travel is possible again. Until then, you’d work remotely.

For our existing employees, we started a full remote work program back in March (we’d previously allowed remote as an option). We’ve been talking to everyone regularly to gauge how they’re doing in this stressful time.

About the position

We’re looking for a senior developer with interest in the frontend to join our team!

Our project is a sophisticated single page application using Typescript, JavaScript, and React. We like to validate our data with schemas, fail early, and build general solutions (and open source them) to our problems. We work with adaptive learning algorithms, video and audio processing, WebRTC, and more.
