Position: Various Positions
Posted by:
Discover Deep Japan
Location: Yuzawa, Niigata or Asakura, Fukuoka, Japan
Contract: Full-Time

Thanks to JET alumnus, Matt Klampert (Tokyo, 2015-2020) for the following roles at his company:

Hi all, former Tokyo JET (2015-2020) here. You may have seen me lurking around these parts in search of jobs, but now I’m happy to offer some! The company I work for, Discover Deep Japan, is looking to fill a few positions.

Here’s some info I’m copying from an older listing:  “Discover Deep Japan is a social startup with a mission to build a more inclusive world. DDJ’s multicultural team revitalizes rural communities through destination development/marketing & product marketing in foreign languages, making communities and local culture (products) more accessible and inclusive for people with diverse backgrounds.”

Basically, it’s a different kind of company than the ones you typically see advertised here. As a startup, we tend to be much more flexible than your typical 9-5, and especially compared to your typical Japanese company, there is much more of an opportunity to really take an active role in your work. It’s a very progressive, transparent sort of place, but not the kind of job where you should expect to wait around until you are told what to do.
