This is a group for global developers in Tokyo, to hangout, share knowledge and make connections.
Our events are free (unless stated otherwise) and open to all levels, languages and backgrounds. Our main communication is in English, but most of us also speak Japanese (and other languages!).
Mercari Inc. is a Japanese tech company creating a global marketplace where anyone can buy & sell.
We believe the world needs a place where people can exchange their loved goods. That’s why we built Mercari—to connect people who want to buy and sell things of emotional value through their mobile phones. Mercari has grown to become a leading community-powered marketplace that brings together millions of people every day.
Welcome to Mercari Engineer's Meetup! This is an event to gather engineers in the Tokyo area to share technical knowledge and network over drinks & food. This is not a study session, no need to bring your laptop (unless you really want to). Each session we'll have a different theme.
📌 Theme: Mobile Engineering
Mercari has been downloaded about 75 million times in Japan and has about 10.75 million monthly users on mobile. Mercari’s mobile team is currently working on a major re-architecture of the Android/iOS apps in order to create a structure where they can conduct further large-scale development while maintaining speed and security. The team is also working on various other projects, such as developing new features and improving the UX.
Join the meetup to learn different aspects of mobile engineering as well as network with like-minded people!
