IT Engineer in Active Connector

No/Low Japanese (Engineer)


We are looking for passionate and talented IT Engineer who would design and launch this new web service together and realize innovation in this traditionally “outdated” style recruitment system.

Currently, there are 10 employees (including part time workers) in the company, but there is no IT engineer. You would be the first one to join as the technology person in the current team. If you successfully launch the service, there is a possibility for you to lead the team (with the possibility to become promoted to CTO), work on various other IT development in the team also working on business development. We are looking for somebody who can really help our company move to the next level with much more scalable web system.
