Mercari Drink Meetup #61（Global Developers Vol.2)
Come and join us for a drink!
主催 : 株式会社メルカリ
Mercari’s next Drink Meetup is all about Global Developers, and features a special Japanese dance show, “TakaraBune”, right here at our Mercari office! We look forward to meeting you all.
Following the success of our previous meetup which featured a live calligraphy show, our second global meetup will feature a traditional Japanese dance show by Japan's one and only Awa Odori Entertainment Group. The group went on their first world tour in 2014 and have since grown to perform around 250 shows a year. They have participated in the “Japan Expo in Paris”, one of the world’s biggest Japan festivals, for 4 years running, and have performed in 18 cities around the world in just 4 years, including a solo performance in NY. In 2017, they are performing in 13 cities across 8 countries. Recently, the group has been working in various other fields, such as forming a special unit with DAISHI DANCE who is a leading DJ in Japan.
As for Mercari, we are continuing to grow fast with over 75 million downloads worldwide. With a rapidly expanding user base in the US, a new office in the UK, and a growing subsidiary, Souzoh, Inc., in Japan, the Mercari family is getting bigger every day!

For this Drink Meetup, we will be providing you with some insight into our global projects. The Meetup will be held in English, so no Japanese skills are required :) We look forward to meeting all kinds of developers, especially those with experience working internationally. Anyone with a strong desire to work abroad is welcome too!
We’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback from our previous meetups. People love the fact that they can hear directly from our team, and learn much more about the company than from simply reading our website. Above all, it’s a fun time−so don’t hesitate to apply!
Mercari was launched in 2013 and has since become the largest mobile marketplace in Japan. We’ve been holding Drink Meetup events since April 2015, and this one will be our 61st.
Many team members who are involved with global projects will be present at this event. It will be a great opportunity to hear directly from the people involved with Mercari’s international expansion.
We hope that you’ll be able learn more about us through this Meetup event. We’ll be waiting for you with beers in hand! (Don’t worry, there will be non-alcoholic drinks too!)
