Is the tech used in Japanese companies different from other countries? From my perspective it seems so. I’ve been a full stack programmering mostly using C# .NET with front-end Angular etc for about four years and there are a tons of companies in my country who match this stack.
At some point I would like to experience working in Japan but it seems most jobs require Java or Go. It’s mostly back-end or full stack I am interested in. Looking at jobs the stack is so different from what I am used to. It makes me a little bit disappointed because I really would like to enter a bigger international company in Japan one day.
For example LINE is recruiting people and there you need either Java, Erlang, Scala, C or C++ to even match one of the requirements for the Server-side Engineer role. Sure I know the basics in Java but I never actually used it at work, only during freetime.
Anyway I just wanted to see if anyone can relate? I guess best is to take a job that uses Go or in this case Java or something to get the job experience and then apply.
