Development Engineer (Tech Lead) for Growing Automobile IT Company

Software engineer

About the company
This company was established in December 2015 and is an "active" venture that is entering a period of growth. The company has two main businesses, both of which are based on the mission of "making cars the best entertainment."

The first is the media business. The company operates a website with the theme of "media that makes cars and motorcycles more fun." It is not just curated media, but a medium characterized by the fact that it produces and publishes original articles by going to various sites on its own to "report".

The company also operates media related to automobiles and motorcycles, and focuses on creating articles by conducting interviews. In addition to that, it is a web-only media without any print media. This type of media is the only one of its kind in Japan. Although it is difficult to monetize the site due to its nature, it has been well received as a site where car, motorcycle, and racing enthusiasts gather, and the company will continue to provide raw and original information.

Another pillar of the company is its e-commerce business, which focuses on the operation and development of its own e-commerce site under the theme of "an e-commerce site where you can find your own way to enjoy your car."
The e-commerce site aggregates information from several custom parts manufacturers in Japan, allowing customers to find and purchase custom parts that fit their cars.

There are about 2,000 custom parts manufacturers in Japan, both large and small. The company is seeking the cooperation of each and every one of them to build an e-commerce site where all kinds of custom parts can be obtained, with the company taking care of the troublesome parts for them. Custom parts made in Japan are also very popular among overseas fans, so the company is working on expanding overseas.
Corporate Culture
The company has a very homey corporate culture that values internal communication.
