Challenge
We're shaking up Japan's e-commerce industry, eliminating barriers and pain points, and filling a crucial missing piece between Japanese sellers and buyers around the world.

 

Global e-commerce is a big project; our operations are complex, and we have to deal with many challenges and constraints. But overcoming these challenges means we'll have built something of lasting value.

Impact
Working on a lean, self-motivated team means autonomy, broad experience across projects, and seeing your contributions directly shape the product and impact users.

 

Lots of companies are competing with us (and copying us), so we try to think hard about how to build features and deliver a service that users love.
