  23. Message from CEO I feel that there are more and

    more people who think that PayPay has the potential to impact society in a positive way. We want to continue to be a leader that creates ripples across society and remain a business that can live up to this expectation. Since the very beginning, a highly diverse group of people with different nationalities and backgrounds have gathered at PayPay, and we have always made the sure that we channel the diversity through changing ourselves and pursuing active dialogue to develop a better service. Having said that, PayPay’s current culture, which is to ”address change at overwhelming speed," is not yet in its complete form. PayPay will continue to keep one stride ahead of the times and adapt at overwhelming speed. PayPay is looking for "true professionals” who can adapt to the everchanging cashless industry and become No.1 by "delivering results at an overwhelmingly fast pace” in response to the individual missions taken on. We aren’t looking for people who become slaves to the company. We seek talent who will continue to increase their market value as professionals in their respective fields, becoming experts who are valued not just by PayPay but outside as well. That is the sort of company I want to build together with everyone. I believe that we can become even stronger both as a company and as a service by amassing those who want to become No.1 and enjoy all the changes along the way.
