About Sansan Engineering Division

In 2021, we decided to make a big change to the organizational structure. We've abolished the structure of having divisions separated by each product, like Sansan Division and Eight Division which had been in place since the company's founding, and developed a Multi-product team structure. Under the new multi-product structure, all sales and marketing members of each product will now be in the Business Division, while the engineers involved in product development and the R&D, which is the data management team, will be in the Engineering Division.
Approximately 30% of our employees are engineers, and the Engineering Division has over 300 engineers and R&D staff combined.
 
 

Engineering Division's Statement

Boldness and honesty. With a spirit of challenge, we hone our skills every day.

Addressing challenges fully. Aiming to turn common sense on its head. Right now, people are meeting people, companies meeting companies. There are countless opportunities to change business. As long as these encounters happen, there is so much we can do.
