Why did you apply for the job?
I joined the company as one of the founding members. We established the company as a continuation of our research in Saitama university.
What is rewarding about the job?
The work atmosphere is rewarding. It allows us to create our own plan to achieve the vision of the company rather than only focusing on assigned tasks. We also have relative freedom over our research.
What is the work atmosphere like?
It doesn’t feel like work, in a good way [laughs].
We are strict about certain things, but we mostly have fun working.
What are your future goals?
My goal is to raise the success rate of screening close to 100%.
I also do my best to train my juniors.

What do you have to say to applicants?

 Because we have relative freedom over our research, we need to think for ourselves and formulate a plan.
I think it’s a great company for those who can enjoy that sort of environment.

I think everyone here is understanding of
assisting childcare, including the president.

Why did you apply for the job?
I didn’t know about evolutionary molecular engineering before joing the company, so I felt I could take on new challenges here. It also seemed like a company where I could apply my field of expertise to the fullest to expand its business, so I joined the company.
Oh, and being close to my home is also one of the reasons [laughs].
What is rewarding about the job?
I am also given a degree of freedom when managing projects.
What is the work atmosphere like?
I can casually seek advice regardless of departments and positions and find it easy to voice my opinions at meetings.
Also, I can focus on my work because everyone is quiet and focuses on their work.
What are your future goals?
I want to succeed in the project I am working on as a leader.
I also want to be able to use my time more efficiently because my kids are a handful [laughs].
