Reasons to Join

Julius, Software Developer

I started working with Sollers as a Software Developer in May 2020 and I am currently working as a React Developer for a project in Japan. I experienced a variety of projects with different technologies, and tools, that helped me grow as a developer. Since I joined I felt that the people I worked with always had my back, they always shared, taught, and helped me during the process and contributed a lot to my progress to be not only a better developer but also a better person.

I also liked that our office in Japan is really international with a mix of people from different backgrounds, which gave a different perspective on how people tackle problems.

Fabio, Software Developer

I started my journey at Sollers as a Software developer in 2020. At the moment I am working at a project in Japan mostly related with frontend technologies.
What I like the most about Sollers is the opportunity to work with very talented and skilful people and also the fact that everyone cooperates a lot. I feel like I can reach out to anyone for advices or opinions without being judged. Being surrounded by these great people keeps me motivated to improve my abilities.
