System Development Business Division Manager
MORABU’S ATTRACTIONDealing with a wide range of companies, we are resilient to economic instability.
I am currently engaged in commissioned development projects at our Kobe office. Our division receives a commission from a company or organization and builds a system to meet their needs.
When we receive a request for a quotation, our work begins with discussions with the client and examining whether we can fulfill the client's requirements in-house.
We need to discuss with our clients on a regular basis throughout the entire process from budgeting, process management, documentation, implementation, and testing, so it is not easy, but it is worthwhile and gives us a sense of accomplishment.
I have more opportunities to communicate with clients, and I have come to value interpersonal relationships in my daily life as much as I do at work. I also feel that I have acquired an awareness of "being proactive rather than passive" in my approach to my work.
Teamwork is the key to commissioned development projects.
Even if each individual is highly capable, if the team is not working smoothly, the work will often become unbalanced.
I believe that it is my responsibility to make the team function efficiently, so I am pleased when everyone is aware of their responsibilities, finds their work rewarding, and brings out the best in the teamwork.
System development requires not only knowledge of programming languages, but also an accurate understanding of the client's needs. It is essential to be attentive in communication. If we proceed with development based on incorrect information, we will have to rework it later, so I always approach our meetings with the utmost care.
I also talk a lot with the younger staff members at the office. As I like new things myself, I usually try to follow the news on world trends and fashions.
When I was searching for a new job to advance my career, the Great East Japan Earthquake occurred and Japan was severely damaged, but I found our company still offering jobs as usual in such circumstances and became interested in it. MORABU has been working with major companies for many years in the contracting and temporary staffing business. Although it is a small-to-medium-sized company, I thought that in a sense MORABU is also resistant to economic instability since it receives work from a wide range of companies. The deciding factor for me to join MORABUB was that I was attracted by the fact that the company is not affected much by changes in economic conditions.
I believe that work provides us with a lot of insights. When designing a system, I am always considering what I can do to make users feel comfortable using the system, and what kind of system will satisfy the client. By doing so, we get into the habit of thinking about the feelings of others on a daily basis, and as a result, our relationships with others become better.
My current goal is to improve the technical skills of my team and create a strong organization that can respond immediately to the client’s needs.
I would like to do my best to make our work trustworthy to our client.
Message to those who are interested in joining MORABU.
You may not yet know if the IT industry is right for you, but I hope you visit us with the intention of "getting something out of it" at our company. The important thing is motivation, and the skills will come later.
