At Spotted Recruit we have assisted over 100 US and European tech companies to build their startups in Japan. Entering the Japan market is not easy and global companies need local knowledge in order to make their Japan operations a success. Most of our clients who are new to the region look for experienced sales professionals with key contacts in their target industries as well as customer facing engineers. Working for this type of company usually involves reporting overseas whilst facing Japanese customers, so business level communication skills in both English and Japanese are often a must.
Traditionally a country where entrepreneurship is seldom seen, Japan has recently experienced a massive increase in the number of well funded innovative tech startups popping up.
Spotted Recruit works with almost 200 Japanese tech startups who are looking for Engineering, Creative, Sales, Marketing and Executive talent. Most of our startups look for people passionate about technology who relish the challenge of wearing multiple hats and are excited to build something innovative.
Working for a Japanese startup will provide you with unique experience that can’t be found anywhere else -- you’ll be part of a fast-paced, energetic team and be given responsibility that you wouldn't normally get to have in a big corporation.
At Spotted Recruit, we are genuinely passionate about tech startups. Our team isn’t concerned by how many people are in your company, or how well designed your office is… our consultants get excited by startups looking to disrupt industries and create something special.
We capture the passion and energy that you have for your own startup and approach appropriate candidates with the same level of excitement.
Our consultants are specialised by profession and we can provide you with specialist points of contact focused on Backend, Frontend and Full Stack Engineers, as well as Pre/Post-Sales Engineers.
Japan is a unique market that requires local knowledge in order to identify the right candidate. In a business culture where deals are often based on the strength of a relationship, making sure you have the best people in place to represent your company is critical.
Whether you are a Global or Japanese startup, our team of experienced bilingual consultants are able to understand both the expectations of a tech startup as well as the right candidate criteria that will help them achieve their business goals.
Our non-engineer recruiting team has dedicated points of contact that support hiring for Sales, Marketing, Back Office and CxO level positions and understand the type of profile that will succeed in a startup.
Spotted Recruit started out as a small team who possessed a different concept on how consulting should be done and who wanted to create something specifically for tech startups.
