Go forward! Job opportunities

We need a staff urgently who does jobs other than software development.

The users are the main actors on Requestland. Staff is creating an environment where users can steadily promote DIDY (Direct Income Distribution Yourself) to resolve the economic disparity problem. We will also support the users group.

As we are a startup, all development and non-development works are done by the two developers currently. As development has proceeded and we have started beta testing for wide range of users, we accept new participants for the activity.

It is a very important activity that many people are awaiting realization. Also it is a rare chance to join a (hopefully) rapidly growing, world scale, and Japan based social startup at the early stage.

We are waiting for your participation.

About our culture and Tsukuba

We work in an academic and crazy atmosphere. The focus is on creating value that solves the social issue. That is different from other companies.

We are a big family, and help each other both in work and life. When we get tired from work, we drive to an onsen (hot spring). In summer, I go mountain climbing in the Northern Japan Alps and play body-board in the Pacific ocean.

Tsukuba is a special city that has many research institutes and universities dedicating technology and science. Thanks to its culture and attractive shopping environment with lots of parks, Ranked at 8th place in Japan in terms of "livability ranking". In addition, the population is increasing as it has the high level of public schools and the well-developed educational environment.

Our Tsukuba University office is a room in a student apartment next to a student dormitory, next to a park. We have lunch in the university, it costs about 400 to 500 yen per meal, and we enjoy walking.

Working here itself is wonderful.
