Mercari is actively looking to hire new graduates and interns.


Mercari does not establish any limits on its members, regardless of factors like age, gender, and nationality. This applies to new graduates and interns as well. Go Bold, All for One and Be a Pro: These are our company values, and we believe that any member who embodies them is a valuable member to us. Our aim is to have everyone work towards the challenging mission of “Circulate all forms of value to unleash the potential in all people,” taking bold steps and not being afraid of failure.

New Graduate Recruitment

One characteristic of Mercari’s new graduate recruitment is that we hire individuals who can immediately put their skills to the test, just like mid-career hires. We provide mentors to temporarily support new members when they join, ensuring that they quickly move their way up to the front lines. New graduates are treated the same as any other member. Our aim is to have an organization where all are treated equally as professionals, and have opportunities to learn and grow.


Mercari is actively looking for interns both domestically and abroad. Based on the candidates and their assigned teams, interns are hired for a set period of time (usually about 1 to 3 months) and given the opportunity to work on developing and improving features in our app. We hope that while working in the same environment as full-time members, interns will not only learn new skills and immerse themselves in the company culture, but also think about what they want to do and whether they can accomplish their goals.



Mercari has people with diverse experiences and backgrounds working together to achieve our mission.

Application screening
  • Your resume is the first impression Mercari will have of you. Make sure it’s easy to read, and try to write it so that anyone reading it can get a clear picture of your career history.
  • Your resume does not need to be in the standard Japanese resume format. We want to know about your experience and what you’re good at, so feel free to choose whatever format you think shows that off best.
  • Please submit your resume in either English or Japanese. Note that some positions may require a specific language. In that case, we may specify which language to use when applying.
  • We want to know as much as we can about you and your work going into the interview, so please show us your past output, whether it’s a blog, GitHub, or other work. If you’ve participated in any internships, tell us about it, including what the internship was, your role, and any quantitative results. Also, please include your expected graduation year.
