Although the domestic manufacturing industry is estimated to be worth 180 trillion yen, many manufacturers and their suppliers are unable to fully demonstrate their development potential and technological capabilities because they are hindered by quotations and administrative tasks, as well as a lack of sales force and information.


CADDi’s mission is to remove those restrictions in various aspects of the industry and unleash each company’s potential to the fullest.


We introduce technology to drive digital transformation in the industry so that all manufactures - from small factories and established leading manufactures to new start-ups - can thrive and add new value to the world. Will you bring your skill to create such a future with us?




Unleash the potential of manufacturing with infrastructure building and operation


Applications for operational reforms are useless without the appropriate infrastructure to run them. Only with a predictable, controllable, and elastic infrastructure can we maximize the value of those applications. The infrastructure that can adequately serve for ever diversifying applications, as well as the frameworks and operations to bring it to life, are vital for CADDi.


As our client base, the scope of our service, and the scale of transactions are rapidly expanding, the products we develop for the manufacturing industry are in constant need of change. Delivering systems that are flexible, secure and controlled to meet our customers’ needs, while fully exploiting the potential of public cloud services, is the foundation to support our rapidly expanding business.


The platform engineering team's mission is to foster innovation, and increase the agility of the engineering organization. From building the foundational infrastructure to developing middleware, you will be part of a fast-paced technical team that is focused on empowering other technical teams to deliver ever increasing value to customers and users.
