Members of our team work together to help attain each other’s dreams: This is to say, people’s individual aspirations often inform the company goals and make up the backbone of new projects. Everyone is free to pitch their ideas directly to the CEO and, eventually, lead their own project. If you have strong drives and passions, we as a company, will give you the tools and resources you need to bring these dreams into fruition.

Our day-to-day work culture emphasises freedom, flexibility, and personal responsibility. You are expected to work in a goal-oriented, result-driven manner without being micromanaged. Our work environment offers many opportunities to challenge yourself, try out new things, and acquire new skills, including company-paid courses and seminars.

Our team members come from all over the world. A casual browse through the “Guild” section of this website will show you that we have staff from Spain, Australia, India, Russia, Egypt, Bulgaria, and of course, Japan. In addition, we also welcome several interns from both Japanese and overseas universities every year, making for a truly international workplace.
