What is Japan Dev?

Japan Dev is a job board that showcases tech jobs in Japan — mostly for English-speaking software developers.

You'll find hand-curated tech jobs at global companies and Silicon Valley-style startups in Japan. Most positions accept applications from outside Japan, and very few require fluent Japanese skills.

Also, we only post vetted positions that offer a positive work environment for foreign software developers and tech professionals — in fact, we turn away 90% of companies that ask to post jobs on Japan Dev.

So if you want to work in tech in Japan but avoid the negative parts of Japan's work culture, this site is for you.

Want to learn more about working in Japan? Check out our blog for actionable insights on finding top-tier tech jobs based on our own experiences working in Japan.

We also maintain a list of top tech companies in Japan. We want to help you find the tech job in Japan that's right for you — and avoid the ones that aren't.

Our goal is to help you achieve success in Japan. We won't be satisfied until everyone who wants to work in tech here can find a job at a company that values them.
