Creating world-class services, organizations, and mechanisms
Designing the product means designing the entire Mercari experience. The scale and global influence of the work we do here is only because it’s Mercari, the operator of Japan’s leading marketplace app. We think of our work as not just designing a product, but the way people live and the way society works. This kind of high-impact work will give you the opportunity to further improve your skills as a designer. You’ll also be directly privy to the impact of your efforts as you read and listen to direct accounts of users’ reactions.
Taking ownership, making decisions, and taking action in an evolving organization
We believe that Mercari is still growing, and for that reason we hold on to our startup mindset when it comes to speed and autonomy. Each designer has ownership of their domain and
is responsible of their own decision-making. Mercari is a company that believes in the power of design and strives to create the optimal environment for designers to realize their potential, through involving them in the product planning phase, for example. We focus on designing good user experience above anything, and keep improving our working environment by building a design system for improved productivity and accumulating/sharing design knowledge among the teams, among other initiatives.
Diversity & Inclusion
Working to achieve our mission in a strong team leveraging each individual’s skills and diversity
Mercari members come from a wide variety of backgrounds. This is because we believe that companies must foster an environment where designers can bring multiple perspectives to the table, to address its true nature of the issue when designing the user experience. We design new value not only by collaborating with professionals from a wide variety of fields including business strategy, data analysis, marketing, and project management, but by utilizing the diverse perspectives inherent to a global organization whose crew hails around the world. Our organization embraces and leverages diversity, and by joining us, you will also broaden your skills and scope as a designer.
