Intern Alumni

Mujin culture is the most open working culture I’ve ever seen in Asia. I feel like I’m in Silicon Valley, everyone speaks English, everyone has a startup mentality. For me it’s like a bubble inside Tokyo. People here are very passionate about what they are doing and they love it.

I think it’s cool how Mujin is still in a growth phase, and in fact 20 people joined after I came onboard, and it was nice to see how rapidly the company is expanding. It’s great to be part of a company on the rise.
