Back-End Engineer Supporting Air BnB Platform *No Japanese Required

No/Low Japanese (Engineer)
Volunteer/Housing Resident


Company Description:
Now, the number of the tourists to Japan has been increasing very fast. As you read in the newspaper, there is a shortage of the hotels that can accommodate all foreign tourists in Japan. Air BnB is becoming one of the most popular staying options in Japan along with conventional hotel places. However, as you know, that Air BnB is a rather new system for Japanese people and for those who are not very familiar with the use of technology etc... even if they have good place to rent out as the place to stay, they tend to feel reluctant to become a host in Air BnB. This company, established in March 2014, saw this as a great business chance. The company supports foreign tourists to stay at the houses, lodges and hotels instead of the real-estate companies and owners.

Global aspects:
The number of the employees is around 30. The company believes in diversity and they are very open to people from diverse cultural background. Half of the employees are foreign nationals and they are from the US, Canada, Malaysia, China, Taiwan, and Korea. Since the service is for mainly foreign tourists, they believe that they value ideas and suggestions from foreign employees.
