The Company
This fast-growing start-up business creates a range of document management and user-interface software systems. Based in London, they work with household name clients around the globe.
This is an opportunity to interview and start remotely during lockdown with a successful software company, working closely with colleagues and clients who are based in Japan. You will be based in the UK, remotely initially and then in their London office when it reopens after lockdown.
The Role
As a Japanese speaking graduate technical project analyst at this fast-growing start-up company, you will have the opportunity to travel the world once lockdown restrictions ease, gaining exposure to high profile clients, predominantly in their Japanese market.
Once you have completed your training, you will report to your project lead and manage projects from start to finish. You will interact with clients on a daily basis and work closely with developers and testers internally, to ensure software is created according to your specifications and delivered to schedule.
