Web/Application Engineer for Company Empowering Athletes and Coaches

JLPT 2 or above (Business)
Volunteer/Housing Resident


In the run up to the 2020 Olympics, Japanese companies and citizens alike have been hard at work in preparing for the world's biggest athletic event. In the same spirit of promoting sports, this company is dedicated to developing services to promote greater accessibility, participation, and performance in sports for athletes and coaches across the country and the world over.


Conventional means of participating in sports has traditionally existed through sports clubs, schools or university teams, and gyms. Under the status quo, this company recognized three barriers to entry to sports for both athletes and coaches. First, is the locality of athletes - depending on one's location, participation in sports can be restricted to one's proximity to sporting facilities, appropriate coaching, and other professional support. Secondly, the socioeconomic status of athletes across the country vary greatly and can, therefore, lead to different levels of participation. Similarly, for coaches and former athletes who want to contribute their expertise and knowledge to the next generation of athletes, having an understanding of business and or a platform or network and access to potential clients to help is virtually nonexistent. For this company, therefore, the problem is threefold - location; lack of financial resources and the absence of a platform to easily transfer knowledge and skills between athletes and coaches.


This company hopes to use modern technology to remove these barriers. Through their online applications; sports management and media services they are trying to maximize connectivity between coaches and athletes to increase participation, maximize performance and introduce new tools to reshape the way sports lessons are conducted.


Having been featured by ABC Asahi Broadcasting and other media channels across the country, this company is making waves in Japan and hopes to have their technology be the standard in the next ten years. With their service, the opportunity to improve your performance and practice can be done at the touch of a button, anytime, anywhere. If you're passionate about sports and believe in promoting greater accessibility, whether it's to train for the Olympics, or just to get healthy this company is for you!
