We’ve built up a strong business through focusing on B2B partnerships, and are now looking to bring our platform to the non-English digital learning market. Our development team is already international, having American, British, Mongolian, Taiwanese, and Japanese members. Our team communicates internally in English, so no Japanese ability is required.
Our response to COVID-19
All employees are allowed to work remotely. We accept overseas candidates, provided you’d be available to work remotely during normal Japanese business hours. Once the border restrictions are eased, you’d relocate to Japan.
