We accept, manage and settle money between countries, currencies and various local payment methods. Many companies, from small merchants up to global corporate giants, expect KOMOJU to work reliably, quickly, safely and without effort on a large scale. We handle many, many millions of transactions each year. Japan and Korea are our main theatres of operations now and we plan to expand into Europe later this year, followed by South East Asia and South America shortly.

At KOMOJU, we consider every major component of our product to be a product of its own. The product manager leads, owns and manages this product as if it’s a business on its own. KOMOJU products are constantly evolving, improving and expanding, so an agile and open mindset is key.



We’re looking for someone who has:

  • Ideally 5+ years product management experience in fast growing teams
  • Prior experience in payments, fintech, crypto, e-commerce, etc.
  • Proven ability to take a product from the earliest conception to successful market adoption
  • Strong design and user sensibilities - ability to view product from a user’s vantage point and is motivated by the chance to improve the lives of customers
  • Experience working on technical B2B and B2C products
  • Technical aptitude. Comfortable with the internal workings of online services and opinionated about APIs
  • Ability to inspire engineering teams to elevate their product ambitions and has collaborated closely on architecture and product decisions alike
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills with a talent for precise articulations of customer problems


You may be a fit if:

  • You’re a creative product thinker who loves collaborating across the company with engineering, risk operations, analytics, marketing, design and sale
  • You are eager to roll up your sleeves and build out a new product idea with a fast-moving motivated team
  • You have experience managing technical software products and navigating difficult technical tradeoffs
  • You do whatever it takes to make your product and team successful whether that means writing a QA plan or hunting down the root cause of a user’s frustration
  • You can turn incomplete, conflicting, or ambiguous inputs into solid action plans
  • Beyond just shipping new products, you obsess about continuous product improvement and can optimize for shipping a portfolio of small, medium and large releases
  • You have experience building or working on technical platforms that enable concurrent development of features by teams located around the world.



  • Competitive salary, based on experience and capabilities
  • Financial support for working remote (lump-sum payment)
  • Additional one week of summer vacation in addition to your regular ones
  • Paid birthday holiday included
  • Free language lessons available (Japanese)

KOMOJU (by Degica) is the leading cross-border payment gateway for Japan.

We power payments for companies like video game distribution platform Steam and the popular mobile app TikTok.

Today we help thousands of merchants by providing them with the payment infrastructure they need, through developer-friendly API’s to integrations on popular platforms like Shopify and Wix; we help our merchants grow in all markets they are expanding.

When it comes to engineering, we believe in having a flat, inclusive culture and constantly improving by continuing to evaluate ourselves. We also prize individuality and believe that each member brings their own unique value to the team.

Our development processes are always updating as the company grows, and we have an engineering culture that largely organizes itself and each engineer has a lot of ownership in their own projects. This culture allows engineers to showcase their strengths while continuing to grow.

KOMOJU's policies during COVID-19 are as follows:

  • During COVID-19 all of their members are working from home 100% of the time (previously they allowed up to one day a week).
  • Their current plan is to continue their full remote policy even after COVID-19 is no longer a concern.
  • They’re able to accept applications from overseas, but you may need to work abroad until it’s possible to move to Japan.
