For Money Forward Inc., one of Japan's top financial technology pioneers, a diverse workforce is key for survival in the rapidly evolving industry and international students are most welcome to become part of it, the company's recruitment officer Arina Doe said.

As the operator of its namesake budget-managing app, Money Forward has continued to grow after starting with just six members in a one-room apartment in Tokyo in May 2012. It went public on the Tokyo Stock Exchange's Mothers market for startups in September last year and is also looking for business opportunities beyond Japan.

Upholding an ambitious vision to become the financial platform for all through its user-friendly services, the venture firm led by CEO and founder Yosuke Tsuji is hungry for talented engineers and other workers.
