    Can you tell us how you came to join Atlas Technologies?

    Thankfully, I joined the company after being headhunted directly by the CEO, Koji Yamamoto. I had sat in on a meeting with Yamamoto once at my previous job, and he seemed to have remembered me from that one meeting. When I was first invited to join Atlas Technologies a few years later, I was facing a mountain of work at that moment and didn't consider the offer too seriously. One day, however, I thought about my future and had another chat with Koji. After talking to him again, I became more interested in working for Atlas.

    I was drawn to consulting in the fintech sector because, although I had never been involved in consulting in a full-scale capacity before, I had 14 years of experience in the fintech sector at several companies, and I thought I could make use of that knowledge and offer something of value in my own way.

  • I was originally interested in helping to build up an organisation with others, rather than joining a company that had a structure and network in place. So I interviewed with the company and decided to join. The CEO, Koji Yamamoto, had an illustrious career, but he has a friendly and easy-going personality. I remember feeling that I could work well with him.

    Currently, I am in charge of consulting for a banking credit card company. I provide advice in the protection of transaction information, among other things. I admire the senior staff member who leads this project. He is a person who has a lot of projects, but he has a thorough grasp of the content and progress of each project. We exchange opinions in meetings. When I think of the efforts he makes in places I can't see, it makes me feel that I have to be on top of my game too. I want to be a reliable member of the team who can take the lead on projects as soon as possible. With that in mind, I give it my all to my day-to-day work.

    Manager, Digital Solution Division

  • At my previous workplace, I had little autonomy and started to feel a bit stuck in a rut when I was becoming accustomed to my position. It was then that I received an invitation to join Atlas Technologies. I was excited to hear that I could be involved in a wide range of payment related projects. Plus, at the time, Atlas was about to launch a major project and I thought, "I want to keep growing", so I jumped at the chance.

    In fact, since joining Atlas Technologies, I have been able to take on challenges in areas I had never experienced before. For example, with one of our clients, I was able to work not only on payment-related projects, but also on smart keys.

    Currently, I handle several consultancy projects for credit card companies. I also manage a team at the same time. I started as an inexperienced consultant, but as I gained experience, I was entrusted with greater responsibility. I think this is an environment where the more you challenge yourself, the more rewarding it becomes.
