About the company
The fourth industrial revolution has brought about an incredible integration in the way we interact with and adapt to innovative technology. While many questions continue to arise around the impact of technology in our lives, there is no doubt that it will become an increasingly integrated part of the world. Nine years ago, a bioinformatics engineer at the University of Tokyo, decided to leave his academic pursuits in order to further his entrepreneurial interests. Having already participated as a founding member of another university-based drug discovery venture company while studying, he recognised this gap and decided to build his own company to create ‘warm’ technology that humanised the interaction and consequent relationship we have with emerging technologies.

Since its establishment in 2007, the company has steadily grown and has made strides towards establishing itself as Japan’s leading voice recognition company. With a strong belief in the transfer of skills frame academia into business, the company is eager to expand its business and capture opportunities to create business applications from research in voice recognition technology by harnessing its full potential in R&D. With its landmark voice recognition product steadily rising in demand, the company is eager to build its team and is eager to hire candidates with an international academic background who can take initiative to share ideas on how to expand and/or enhance its existing services.

They have a strong interest in people with an academic background and are eager to hire people who are seeking to transfer their skills and knowledge into the private sector.
