Our main office is located at the Impact HUB Tokyo, an international co-working space which hosts several digital companies, as well as the coding bootcamp Le Wagon. The closest station is Meguro Station, and many buses serve the area as well. Around the office, you can find a wide variety of cafes and restaurants, as well as supermarkets and drugstores. And, last but not least, we are only a few steps far from one of the best spots in Tokyo to see the cherry blossoms in spring: the Meguro River.
If you prefer to work remotely, though, we are very flexible in considering such option as well.
In both cases, employees are provided with the tools necessary to do their job well. If you need a particular tool, we'll get it for you.
