Reshaping

Work Style

At Zehitomo, we use the word "pro" when referring to people with small to mid sized companies and freelancers who provide professional services to reflect their professional experiences and strengths.

Zehitomo is dedicated to perfecting a platform to attract customers for pros who want to expand their business.

One-to-one local service delivery for services such as home reform, personal training, photography, and online lessons is a huge 20 trillion yen market and we are actively making a major impact on it by challenging ourselves to forever change Japanese work style.

Teamwork

Open-minded communication. Respect each other. Move efficiently as a team to achieve something bigger than moving separately.

Problem Solving

Data-driven thinking. Challenge each other to 10x achievement by one action. Endeavor to understand the big picture of the problem in front of you. Don't be afraid to make decisions and based on data and critical thinking.

Our amazing team-members are waiting for you!

Zehitomo is a small, international team of excellent people. We are high-paced and inspired to do great work everyday. If you want to work at a high-paced start-up, challenge yourself, and innovate, we want to meet you.
