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 “creating value in a global marketplace where anyone can buy & sell,” 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.
