We’re always looking for freelance Ruby on Rails or React/React Native developers to help us with our client projects. If you’d like to be added to our list of go-to developers to call on, please get in touch with some examples of the work you have done and your day rate in yen.

For Ruby on Rails developers, we expect you to be experienced with unit testing, API creation, Postgres, common gems such as devise, carrierwave, kaminari, webpacker etc. You should have some experience of working with Heroku or other PaaS. Knowledge of GraphQL is a nice plus.

For React developers, we expect you have experience with Redux and/or Relay (or Apollo) as well as other React ecosystem libraries.

For React Native developers, we expect to see projects that do not use Expo (either have ejected or more ideally were built from the start without Expo), use react-native-navigation, and Redux and/or Relay (or Apollo).

So please get in touch (and be sure to tell us your day rate!) if you’d like to talk about the possibility of working together!

While we always like to receive email applications, we love to meet in person with anyone who's interested in joining us! So why not join one of our Tokyo Dev Round Table or Canvas Round Table events to make a connection and get to know us before applying?

Also, please understand that we receive a huge number of emails every day. Therefore, as a policy, we are unable to reply to any emails regarding jobs or internships that are not advertised below. We thank you for your understanding.
