Corporate Engineering at Mercari
At Mercari, we take challenges every day in order to fulfill our mission to “Circulate all forms of value to unleash the potential in all people.” The Corporate Engineering Team focuses on our colleagues working at Mercari, who deliver the service to our users, and provides them with the ultimate employee experience. Through engineering, we contribute to improving our customer experience by creating an environment where all Mercari members can perform to their fullest.
Creating world-class services, organizations, and mechanisms
The Mercari marketplace app has grown into a service used by more than 20.00 million people each month, but our goal is to “Circulate all forms of value to unleash the potential in all people.” At Mercari, we believe that in order for our service to evolve beyond Japan and be used worldwide, we need to not just choose the best technology and system environments, but to create and provide them from scratch.
Taking ownership, making decisions, and taking action in an evolving organization
Mercari’s Corporate Engineering Team needs to adapt to change, and allow everyone to take ownership in order to make decisions autonomously. Everyone is able to put their ideas into practice and test them, so that we can deliver the best experience to both our users and the people working with us. This is what we call “micro-decisions”. We believe that trying things many times increases our chances of success and, in turn, promotes the growth of our teams and their members.
Diversity & Inclusion
Working to achieve our mission in a strong team leveraging each individual’s skills and diversity
Mercari aims to “Circulate all forms of value to unleash the potential in all people”, and we place a strong emphasis on diversity in our organization and team members. It’s not an easy task for members of different backgrounds, including languages, cultures, and values, to come together as one, but we believe that treating these differences as strengths helps us create a strong engineering organization ready to compete on a global scale.
Mercari has people with diverse experiences and backgrounds working together to achieve our mission.
