With 33 tutoring centers established as of July 2023, we are a Full Stack Startup, delivering educational experience that blends physical spaces and technology seamlessly through tailor-made content and inventive applications.

Our commitment to exceptional service sets us apart. We meticulously design operations to ensure a consistently excellent educational journey. We revolutionize education with cost-effective solutions and uncompromising quality, reaching students across Japan.

 

About the Role

Joining Conocer means becoming part of a tight-knit team of 57 talented individuals. Our lean development team consists of one product manager and three developers (including one overseas). We primarily work remotely, fostering collaborative, English-centric environments. While other teams predominantly communicate in Japanese for business reasons, we place strong emphasis on cross-functional collaboration with teams such as marketing, business development, and content.

As part of our team, you'll tackle diverse challenges and contribute to the creation of innovative products within project timelines that typically span a few months. Given the nature of our business, our product roadmap aligns with the school calendar of Japan. We value open discussions, clear priorities, and individual autonomy, empowering you to make a meaningful impact.
