Breaking the Mold of Software Development

There are still so many things in the realm of software development that people take for granted or regard as unchangeable even if they are irrational or inefficient. We change these conventions with technology and AI, and make a world where people engaged in software development can work more enjoyably and creatively.




Values

Be Sincere

Keep a sincere attitude toward customers, teammates, everyone.

Take Initiative

Think for yourself and act independently.

Think Rationally

Resolve problems through the use of IT or standardization, rather than willpower.
