About WOVN

WOVN.io is a website localization service. Our users want to provide their website in multiple languages. We strive to provide the simplest and most powerful solution to our users, without compromising on features. Quality and utility are of the utmost importance to us. This means providing a top-class experience for our users that is easy to use.

We are looking for people who are flexible and highly skilled, with an interest in languages and other cultures. 80% of our engineers are from abroad, and we are open to overseas candidates looking to relocate to Japan.

How we work

We have a Scrum team and have Sprint Review meetings every other week. We share each member’s performance with a kanban on Jira.

Our response to COVID-19

While we’ve needed to adjust our business’s strategy to make the best of the COVID-19 situation, overall we haven’t been negatively effected by it, and are continuing to hire engineers.

Since March, we’ve been working completely remotely, and as part of this stopped in-person interviews in favour of online ones.

We are still hiring candidates from overseas, and will support their visa application. Until COVID-19 is settled and the border restrictions are lifted, you can begin working remotely from abroad.

About the position

Members are expected to be full stack: mostly backend with Ruby on Rails but also some frontend with JavaScript and Vue.js. Understanding of areas like CAT tools, linguistics, NLP, data analysis, and information retrieval is also required.
