Tokyo, Japan · Products · EN/JP


At Mercari, our mission is to create value in a global marketplace where anyone can buy & sell, and we pride ourselves in taking on a challenge. We are looking for new members to join us in achieving this goal under our values - Go Bold, All for One, and Be a Pro.

The Mercari marketplace app has been downloaded by millions of users around the world, and each individual user utilizes the service in their own particular way. We still have a ways to go, however, in our attempt to achieve our mission of “Creating value in a global marketplace where anyone can buy & sell,” and so we are constantly looking for new ways to challenge ourselves and grow as a company.

At Mercari, we are focused not just on improving our service for our users, but also on expanding our perspective and adopting new ways of thinking. In this context, our product managers must not only possess knowledge of engineering, but also an eye for trends/user needs and the ability to turn those opportunities into concrete business plans.



世の中では多くのモノ・サービスが生産・販売されていますが、誰かには価値があるのに捨ててしまうなど地球資源の無駄になっていることが多いと私たちは考えています。 「捨てる」をなくすために、個人間で簡単かつ安全にモノを売買できるフリマアプリ「メルカリ」を日本とアメリカで展開しています。
