Charms and strengths of Okinawa
Our office is in Nago city in northern part of Okinawa.
People are calm and gentle and serious in terms of work.
As a work environment, it is an environment where you can relax and work.
In the metropolitan area, there is a strong sense of lack of IT talent, and we can not flexibly secure necessary resources. Moreover, because that also leads to high cost, we chose Okinawa as one of the candidates for Nearshore as a means of securing human resources.
During the review process, we decided to advance into Okinawa from the support of institutional support and the abundance of young people (high youth unemployment rate).
After approaching Okinawa
Both in a good way and a bad way, I assumed they were relaxed (or loose), but in terms of work, I did not have any serious and loose stuff more than I expected, and it was a perfect job.
However, in private, the loose impression on time is more than expected, the drinking party after work basically no one gathers on time, it is normal to get late for 30 to 1 hour. I think that this variation is amazing.
Business details and future development in Okinawa
Our company is made up of inexperienced people in IT work all the founding members. It’s been a little over a year since its foundation, but now it is mainly responsible for the testing / quality control tasks of software development managed by the parent company.
In order to compensate for inexperience, we are conducting development training in parallel, and in the future we would like to provide development / solutions by in-house dissemination.
In addition, since there is a subsidiary in Vietnam as a parent company and an affiliated company in the metropolitan area, we hope to create new solutions by taking advantage of their regionality and business characteristics.
