Sansan develops advanced technology to turn its users’ business cards into powerful, shareable, and actionable data.

With more than 2.8 million registered users, it is the leading professional social network in Japan.

Our response to COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 situation, each employee can choose either to work from home or go to the office. Currently, it is possible for engineers to work completely remotely. After the situation subsides, we may require employees to regularly come to the office.

While we’ve supported relocation in the past, due to the COVID-19 situation we currently require you to already be a resident of Japan.
