Job Description


The R&D team in Woven City Management is developing innovative products and services using technologies developed by Toyota Motor Corporation.

Our missions:

  1. Develop services and products for Woven City
  2. Expand capabilities through long-term R&D

Toyota Motor Corporation has been involved in a variety of technological development such as robotics and energy technologies, as well as automobile technologies. Toyota is already particularly strong in hardware and we will create additional value by developing new software on top of it.

As a first-party developer, we will not only develop innovative services essential to the city, but also a foundation upon which third-party partners can participate. Not only are we developing applications but also more core basic software and capabilities.

Our team consists of many mid-career members and members with international work experience. We strive to be open-minded as we cultivate a new culture. We work closely with Toyota Motor Corporation, Toyota Research Institute in North America, and Toyota Motor Europe to develop technologies and products. Our team consists of many members who are from foreign countries. We provide a global work environment.

We are seeking talented persons to join us to take on new challenges in creating new products and services.
