White Rabbit Japan is a fast-growing, pioneering eCommerce company. Our flagship products (White Rabbit Express and Blackship.com) serve a global market of customers in over 140 countries. We combine exceptional customer service and innovative technology to make buying from Japan as easy as possible.

Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, we are looking for smart, team-oriented people who can get things done. White Rabbit gives team members autonomy to make decisions and rethink business processes to keep things running smoothly, rather than merely operating like machines.

As a small, fast-growing company, you'll be part of a team where your contributions have a real impact. We believe in giving talented people the resources they need to do their very best every day. We work together to achieve tough but rewarding goals. At the same time, we're a fun-loving team, and the work environment is casual and friendly.
