Salesforce Engineer for Global Market

We are seeking an experienced and motivated Salesforce engineer to join our Tokyo-based team, working on our Scan to Salesforce service.

Sansan is Japan’s leading business card-based contact management solution for corporations, and one of Japan’s leading SaaS products. Sansan first released Scan to Salesforce in 2017, in order to provide Sansan’s advanced proprietary business card scanning to Salesforce users, predominantly in the US. The service is completely free, and enables users to accurately scan up to 4 business cards at a time, and upload them to Salesforce, all in a matter of seconds. Scan to Salesforce has been well-received and well-reviewed, and is consistently among the top apps on AppExchange.

We are committed to enhancing and optimizing our product and user experience, and seek an internationally-minded engineer who can contribute their passion and knowledge to that endeavour. The role involves all aspects of the AppExchange app development, including proposal and development of new functions and features, feasibility studies, and discussions and decision-making with product owners and designers about UI, UX and specifications. Collaboration with both Japanese and international staff will be necessary, and so business-level English and Japanese are both required.

You’ll be working in our head office, which is in a great location in the trendy and upmarket Omotesando area of Tokyo.
