Our Tokyo engineering team is looking for a frontend engineer to help us continue to grow from Japan’s biggest online English school to a multinational learning platform.

We work as a relatively small team developing and maintaining DMM Eikaiwa and Engoo. We deploy daily and are looking for someone to join as an engineer focused on the frontend. Our team is managed by engineers, who value avoiding meetings and any other unnecessary distractions. This includes making sure everyone has the best tools available, and also means making sure that people have the flexibility to work in the way that suits them best, so they can focus on building.

We are building a powerful single-page application in TypeScript using React. We have great test coverage and use the best tools we can, aiming to build long-term solutions to problems and adopt techniques that will allow us to keep growing. Our developers spend their time coding and looking at pull requests, not in meetings and doing other tasks like testing or design or ops.

We're looking for people who have an understanding and passion for programming and computer science, not someone with experience in a particular language. That said, here are some of the things we work with. Any you might have experience with is a nice bonus!

  • WebRTC
  • React
  • TypeScript
  • NLP
  • Ruby
  • node
  • LLMs



  • Flex time
  • Remote work
  • Japanese lessons
  • Standard Japanese public holidays and Japanese paid leave, plus 10 additional days paid leave yearly
  • Pension, workers’, and health insurance contributions
  • Equipment—computers, displays, peripherals, and more
  • Visa application and fees
  • 150,000 JPY payment for moving from overseas
  • Two months of accommodation
  • Payment for guarantor fee for first apartment
  • Japanese interpretation assistance
  • Free company counseling

DMM Eikaiwa is Japan’s largest online English School. Their small team develops and maintains an online language learning platform.
