Join us at our Global Backend Engineers Meetup on May 16th to hear directly from Mercari’s backend engineers about their daily work, exciting new projects, and Mercari’s global initiatives.
For this drink meetup we will be welcoming software engineer Tony Huang to share his experience of joining Mercari directly from Taiwan and his work in the UX team. We have also invited Sota Sugiura to discuss the company’s engineering technology and life as a backend engineer at Mercari. There will also be a Q&A session as well as plenty of free time to hear more from our talented engineers.
So whether you are looking for an opportunity to exchange knowledge with other backend engineers of Tokyo or simply interested in knowing more about Mercari, this meetup is the place to be. We look forward to seeing you there!
