Our company is Japan ’s leading business card-based contact management solution for corporations with over 7000 corporate customers, while has over 2.5 million individual users.

With Our company's global expansion underway, in order to further improve the efficiency and quality of integration of non-Japanese people and companies, we seek a non-Japanese engineer to join the Nayose Group. The role will involve UI and Web API development, as well as data handling and transactions, in close collaboration with DSOC's R & D Team and Our company's Global Product Group.
We are driven by innovation, and are looking for a passionate and intelligent engineer who will demostrate initiative and ambition, devise new solutions and help drive the project ever forwards. We combine data, technology and operational acumen to generate unrivalled value and quality. We aim to be the best not only in Japan, but the world.

【appeal point】
Production input and great self-discretion
Since the research and development department aims to implement it in its own service, the developed technology can be put into the form of a product and the subsequent operational improvement can be performed. Since it is close to our own service, it is possible to get feedback as data immediately after implementation. You can improve it at your own discretion. In addition, we have extensive support from technology development to implementation, such as requesting input operators to create learning data and receiving advice from R & D architects. So far, more than 70% of R & D projects have been incorporated into products.

DSOC's research target is a database of unique encounters
Encounter data accurately converted into data by our unique business card data conversion system. There is no other database that specializes in information on people-to-people connections in the Japanese business scene. Under a secure system, we can use data from this unknown area to conduct research and development with an awareness of contributing to the users of our services and, by extension, society. As a research department that supports all businesses across the board, you can work with a wide range of discretion and make the most of your individual strengths.

Environment with researchers from diverse backgrounds and specialized fields
Various researchers are enrolled in natural language processing, image processing, data analysis, sociological analysis, etc. In addition, there are also researchers who hold the title of Grandmaster, which has only about 100 people in the world, in "Kaggle", and there is an environment where you can work hard with the world's top data scientists.

[Background of recruitment]
To increase personnel due to business expansion
Company Info We provide a business card management service for corporations and individuals that turns business cards into "valuable assets" by aggregating all the business cards in the company.
Since it has a 82% share in Japan, it is almost monopolized.
As an overseas strength, it is almost the same in terms of service (in the sense that you can work on and manage applications by shooting and reading business cards with a smartphone camera), but it is called accuracy of reading business card information. It has an overwhelming strength in terms of points. Other services may not be able to be read in several places, but in the case of the company's service, basically all the information described can be read accurately.
In 2019, we listed our shares on the Tokyo Stock Exchange Mothers.
