My name is Ayumi and I’m from Nagoya. I have been working as a junior Ruby on Rails developer in New Zealand for 2 years and just came back to Japan 3 weeks ago. While in New Zealand, I worked for several startups and really enjoyed the positive and passionate atmosphere with a focus on doing social good. I am really keen to continue to work and contribute to startups in Japan. My partner will work in Takasaki (Gunma) from August, so ideally I am looking for a web development job as close as possible to home.
Does anyone know of any startups or tech companies around the Gunma area?
I know Tokyo has many startups so I thought there must be some in other regions too.
Commuting to Tokyo would be my backup option if there is nothing closer to home. Does anyone else commute from out of Tokyo and are able to tell me if they get tsuukin (commute allowance) from their startup work?
Any advice would be much appreciated! slightsmile emoticon
