Hi, I’m Paul McMahon, curator of tokyodev. Through sharing my personal experience being a developer in Japan, I've built a large community of international developers living in Japan or looking to relocate here.
Even for technically brilliant developers, there's a shortage of opportunities that don't require Japanese abilities. This job board helps you hire them.
50% of companies who post a job on tokyodev hire someone because of it. Some companies have hired over ten developers through it.
We have spent so much time, money and effort on other recruitment platforms and agents, but nothing has really worked so far. We believe Tokyo Dev is the best source to reach out to a bunch of skillful and passionate developers. appArray just found a great engineer through this list within a couple of weeks which is considered as a very short recruitment period for small startup like us. If you would like to hire great talents, we highly recommend Tokyo Dev.
Tokyo Dev has been our best source for finding English speaking engineering talent in or wanting to work in Japan. As a small startup, other recruiting services and platforms have been either too expensive, too time consuming to administer, or simply do not deliver the necessary recruiting results. Tokyo Dev delivers on all three. It’s affordable, takes no time, and delivers recruiting results. Highly recommended for any Japanese startup looking for English engineering talent.
We have used Paul’s mailing list to successfully hire a great engineer who matched our company culture and technical requirements. I’m always impressed with how Paul helps us to create interesting and easy to understand job posting. His knowledge for “hiring foreign engineer as a startup” is amazing and I’m very keen to work with him over and over as we grow the engineering team.
Through Paul's email list, MerryBiz has found a great engineer. Someone who was not just very highly skilled but with the will to relocate to Tokyo. We are very thankful to Paul in providing this wonderful chance! We had originally got more than 20 candidates with a wide variety of backgrounds and nice diversity. It was very tough to figure who would be the best fit but we are quite happy with who we chose.
