We Are Zeals
A communication tech company based out of Tokyo, Japan. We are a group of scrappy and hungry bunch from different walks of life, looking to make an actual impact on the way people and businesses communicate through our AI Chatbot technology. We obsess over bringing hospitality to everyone--be it our customers or you! You’re an individual with unique needs. As an employer we are ready to roll-up our sleeves and change the status quo if it means to make your experience better!
For the past 6 years, our AI-based chatbot has captured–and will continue to capture—the heart of many businesses here in Japan. As a result, we have recently secured a series E funding totaling $33.8M led by JIC Venture Growth Investments and Salesforce venture. According to BCG's recent research, The conversational commerce market is scaling rapidly in both the US and Asian markets and we want to be at the epicenter of this growing phenomenon.

Everyone matters here at Zeals--regardless of their background. Be it a young coding prodigy (Yes, our CTO just turned 23) to someone who hardly speaks Japanese. Everyone has a voice. We went from a small, humble apartment to a 300 people organization across multiple time zones (with no sign of stopping) in the span of 7 years--all that thanks to our members’ contributions. So, if you join us, get ready to raise up your voice and spend your time contributing to projects that matter!
Our last 2 years have been phenomenal and we are still growing (with so much untapped potential). While we can’t attract you with ping-pong tables or all-you-can-drink espresso bars. We can promise you full flexibility on your workstyle and co-workers that you can brag about to your friends, family or anyone you meet the next time you go out for a party!
