Overview

At Money Forward, we develop and provide the B2B SaaS "Money Forward Cloud" series. At the core of this series is "Money Forward Cloud Invoice," which has supported the efficiency of various billing tasks, including invoice creation, since its release in 2014, contributing to the improvement of business productivity. 

However, many small and medium-sized enterprises still face challenges such as inefficient paper-based accounting tasks and opaque management information, leading to low productivity as a social issue. We are committed to evolving "Money Forward Cloud Invoice" daily in collaboration with partners such as accounting firms and tax offices that face the management of small and medium-sized enterprises and sole proprietors, as well as the government that is pushing the digitalization trend. By increasing the number of users, we aim to improve the operational productivity of domestic companies and, consequently, the competitiveness of the entire domestic business.

With the introduction of the invoice system and the spread of digital invoices, Japan's billing operations will undergo significant changes. In this context, we are enhancing our system to rapidly improve the product value through the development of new features and enhancement of existing ones, as well as to achieve more stable operation for users to use our services with confidence. We are currently seeking a Lead Engineer to join our team.

 

Organizational characteristics

Organizational Features The Cloud Invoice is one of over 30 service lineups in the Money Forward Cloud series and is a core service of Money Forward, released in 2014, following accounting and tax filing services. While it is a well-utilized service, we are also taking on new challenges, one of which is development at our overseas base in Vietnam since 2020. Therefore, the common language of the team is English, and all documents are also in English. We are looking forward to applications from those who want to lead a development team in English and work with overseas members to create products.
