Job Description

About the position
As a Backend Engineer, you'll join our team in crafting our efficient, stateless, and elegant gRPC/JSON web APIs, and build and maintain the infrastructure to host them together with our customers.

You'll take advantage of many of the latest trends in technology. /Examples of technologies we've recently used include data stream processing at scale with Kafka, container orchestration with Kubernetes on GCP, graph based databases such as Dgraph, Mosquitto for IoT integrations and using Solidity for building Ethereum Smart contracts.

We also hope that you're passionate about choosing the right tool for the problem no matter if it's Golang, Python, Node.js or perhaps something else - just like us.

About Dreamly
Dreamly is a startup aiming to re-humanize IT from small town Japan with an international mindset and also providing cutting edge software development skills to new product development initiatives all over Japan & Scandinavia.

We're providing consultancy services exclusively for new product development but are also building & evaluating PoC's to find a market fit for inhouse development.

We've been doing this successfully for three years and are now in the middle of establishing an office in the middle of Tokyo, extending our head office in Kagawa - enabling our members to work in either location at their discretion depending on their experience level.

Being different is our strength
Founded by a Swede in Kagawa, we're not your typical IT startup. Our small team has members from Sweden, America and Japan, and as we grow it, diversity is something we strive to increase, as having a wide variety of perspectives makes us stronger. All our members have an international background from all over the world, but we keep our business language to Japanese.

This variety in perspectives is what enabled us to see the possible solutions to the process optimization issues we were seeing in the Japanese society and our backgrounds helped us approach the issues with a wider range of not only tools but also a wider range of options of how to solve the issues.

Providing our skills as Startup-as-a-Service
It's important for us to share our know-how with other startups in Japan who are trying to make something truly unique, providing concrete sustainable value to their end-users. We've been working with disruptive startups in various stages and industries all over Japan since the start, doing everything from smartphone app development to IoT. From 2022 we're also providing services in areas such as AI & Machine Learning and Blockchain & cryptocurrencies. 

Due to the way we work with our customers we've rebranded our business from being a "simple" outsourcing company to a tech partner, or rather executing the role of an external CTO on behalf of our clients.

We do this by providing a dedicated remote agile team which is working closely together with our customers with the aim of not only creating product value but also enabling our customers to implement sustainable development practices in order to support their own future inhouse development team. 

A part of this is reflected in our way to choose who we work together with - companies who are open to our suggestions and ideas is a key aspect of this. We look thoroughly at their culture, vision and strategies but also do a sanity check on their business model - sometimes we also provide necessary advice if we believe the customer has overlooked vital aspects.

We are going to support Tomorrows' Engineers

The IT industry in Japan is infamous for overtime, harsh work conditions and low salaries. The consequences are evident upon society due to lagging digital transformation but also in the scarcity of Tech startups. Sweden, the homeland of our CEO, stands in stark contrast and we believe it doesn't need to be like this. Lack of higher level education, job market information and access to global job opportunities are but a few of the factors playing into why software engineers are not given the appreciation for the value they provide, and also why they themselves push for it.

We're on the path of bringing back passion in life to the Engineers and creating a new eco-system aiming for sustainability in software innovation, enabling Japan to not lose, but gain, the invaluable manpower to transform Japan into tomorrow.

This we will do by bringing renowned Swedish innovation and the sense of Japanese craftsmanship together while working tightly together with our users but also by working with Scandinavian customers, exposing a wider & more diversified range of problems and solutions to our engineers.

Company Description

パッションに時間を費やせる社会へ。

「パッション」=「本当に自分がやりたいこと」に大切な時間を使える社会を目指しています。
今の日本は仕事への時間的な比重が大きすぎます。
一方、北欧諸国ではテクノロジーによる効率化により「時間と心の余裕がある生活」を実現しています。
パションに時間を費やせるようになると、仕事の質も向上します。
複雑で非効率なものをシンプルにしましょう。働き方を変えましょう。

技術力、働き方、人材育成のイノベーション。
香川を日本のモデルへ。

ITの世界基準と比べて東京は5年、地方都市は10年の差があると感じます。そしてITエンジニアの労働環境については、さらに大きな差があります。私はそこに、最大の問題があると考えています。

「時間と心の余裕」が持てる働き方ができれば仕事への意欲が高まり、「仕事の品質」が向上します。よい成果を出してお客様から高い評価を得られると、さらに余裕のある生き方につながる…という好循環が生まれるのです。

香川に世界先端のノウハウを落とし込み、ITエンジニアの働く環境を変えていく。さらに人材育成にも力を入れてマンパワー不足を補う。このイノベーションを加速すれば、必ず香川は日本のモデル都市になれます。日々仕事に追われるのではなく、パッションに時間を費やせる豊かな社会を、香川から実現します。
