  14. HireRoo’s Values 19 Fail Fast The faster we fail, the

    faster we can get closer to a solution! Failing fast does not mean that we do not try to succeed—quite the opposite. It means that we do not let the fear of failure keep us from trying our best. Aim High Each and every employee at HireRoo takes pride in the work they do. We love what we make and the creative process in general. HireRoo employees always strive for excellence. Pull Together It is not as individuals but as a team that we can achieve our greatest potential. At HireRoo, we play, work, win, fail, and succeed together. The ability to trust and be trusted by your team members is paramount. Take Initiative Based on a foundation of trust and transparency, HireRoo employees are expected to take action quickly and when necessary.
  15. HireRoo’s values in action Fail Fast • We have many

    mechanisms in place for quickly reflecting on past actions taken. Aim High • Even when HireRoo had no more than 10 members in total, everyone pulled together to aim high and achieve the lofty goal of an advent calendar. Pull Together 20 At our monthly “In-Person All-Hands,” we recognize members who have demonstrated or embodied our values with the Fail Fast Award and the Aim High Award. This is a screenshot of the moment we decided to do the advent calendar. This is an example of a meeting where we reflected on the development process.
  16. Work styles • Work hours: Flex (core time is 12:00–17:00)

    • Holidays: Two days off per week, national holidays, year-end and New Year holidays, congratulation and condolence leave • Paid leave: New hires get 10 days of paid leave on the day they join • Social and labor insurance • Work location: Work From Anywhere!

  18. Message from the CEO I like to say that while

    good products sell, great products that provide value will always sell, and at the core of these products are the engineers who make them. Together with my colleagues, I founded HireRoo with the dream of creating a world in which the skills of engineers are fairly evaluated and Japan is once again at the top of global manufacturing. I truly believe that great products will always sell. But creating a great product in the first place takes more than just people who make things—we also need people who sell things, people who know how to optimize value, people who are good at networking, and many, many more! This business is where I choose to dedicate my life and to accomplish HireRoo’s mission we need you! So come take on the challenge—join HireRoo and let’s aim high together!
