  • Experienced and knowledgeable about interaction design, methods and tools (Sketch, Adobe, Marvel, etc.)
  • Detail-oriented and obsessive about visual design
  • A team player who’s empathetic with people from different cultures and backgrounds
  • A problem solver, with ideas that challenge the ordinary, together with the drive –¬ and the guts – to bring them to life
  • Someone with a ‘here to help’ attitude, who absolutely, fundamentally believes that we’re better together
  • Fluent in English – Japanese is a bonus!


Would you like to join…?

  • Monday breakfast with lots of fresh veggies and fruits, and occasional special treats, also Friday lunch prepared by a professional chef
