At Spotted Recruit we have assisted over 100 US and European tech companies to build their startup teams in Japan. Entering the Japan market is not easy and global companies need local talent 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 recruiters 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 recruiters 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 recruiters 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 recruitment should be done and who wanted to create something specifically for tech startups.
If you are searching for a new position, the position that you wont be introduced by other recruitment agents, this is the place to contact and register. After checking and discussing my experience and requests,Spotted Recruit has introduced me a position exactly matching my wish. They work closely with their client companies to provide extra information.
Spotted really helped me to find an opportunity that matched with my profile, in a short period of time and direct to the point, they provide me the best in all steps of my selection process. I'm very thankful to meet Spotted
Through Spotted, I've got an offer that made me decide to leave a huge and global tehnology company in favor of a small, but global, startup. I'm really glad to have taken that decision. The opportunities and satisfaction I have now are very much higher.
I think Spotted Recruit is a very nice recruitment firm. Their strength is in their ability in describing jobs to candidates and following up with both the candidate and client side extensively.
I decided to work for the company because Spotted Recruit has been very supportive for me. I think the company is perfect for me and it is all because of my agent's hard work. He gave me not only the basic information such as salary and what the company does but also the atmosphere and what kind of project they were going to work on and the schedule. He is a very good agent and you can trust him.
