What we're about

This is a group for global developers around the world, 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.
