Yaraku is a small start-up located in Shibuya, Tokyo. Our focus is primarily on our web-based Translation Management System application.
Work deeply without interruptions
As developers, we love getting in a flow state, where we become so fully absorbed in programming that almost magically time stands still as code pours out of our fingers. The enemy of this state is interruptions, and so we've built a culture that avoids them. For instance, rather than having someone come over to your desk to ask a question, they'll send you a message through Slack (and you're free to turn on do not disturb mode so you don't get annoying notifications). If you're the kind of developer who likes to pop in your headphones and code in silence for hours on end, this is the place for you.
Freedom and responsibility
You'll get to choose the tasks you work on, and be responsible for all stages of development: from design to implementation to testing to deployment. We take a hands off approach to management, and so no one is going to tell you exactly how to do something. Rather, you'll have the freedom to choose yourself what approach to take, and even which technologies to use.
Craft quality code
We know that taking the time to create clean, quality code pays dividends in the future. Management understands this, and so rather than being pushed to quickly hack something together, you'll have the time needed to create beautiful code.
Your gateway to Japan
Our team is made up of international developers from around the world, and English is our common language around the office. If you're looking to move to Japan, we welcome you to apply - no Japanese is required and you don't need to be living in Japan yet.
