About LanCul

LanCul offers English conversation as a subscription service. Our customers can have conversations with our English facilitators and other members, either in person at one of our twenty branches, or online. We don’t teach English. Instead we provide a fun, friendly environment for people to communicate to cherish the relationships with other members, to help them open their minds to the possibilities of life and to share stories as we grow together. Since launching seven years ago, we’ve provided over three hundred thousand sessions.

Japanese language ability is not required for this position as all of our communication is in English. Our senior management team is made up of both Japanese and International professionals. Visa sponsorship is available for this position. We are currently only accepting applications from applicants already residing in Japan.

In principle, you can work 100% remotely, though you may be occasionally asked to participate in some face-to-face communication.

About the position

As an engineer on our team, you will be part of every stage of development from concept to deployment. If you’re passionate about the user experience, want to be part of a group that works on very early-stage products, have the opportunity to shape them, and enjoy crafting robust, scalable, and maintainable services, we may be the team for you!

You will be working within a small, but effective engineering team and with your strong attention to detail you will help us to find the best solutions to important problems, always keeping the user in mind.

As our team grows, we’ll look to promote from within, and hope you’ll be able to take on the role of Vice President of Engineering.
