Technology at Rakuten
In order to empower society and become the "No 1 Internet Service Company" in the world, Rakuten is aggressively pursuing global expansion. Programming is the key to realizing that goal. At Rakuten, we do all things from service planning to programming management.
Because of this, it is possible to quickly develop new services. As we approach a new phase in our global expansion, the role that programming plays will become increasingly more important.
With this establishment, our programming research has entered a new phase, enabling us to provide an environment where we develop everything from new technologies to new service models.
As Rakuten Group expands abroad, Rakuten's has established development locations in Japan and abroad. Rakuten Institute of Technology is located in New York and there is an additional location in Boston. For our next step, we will establish additional programming centers in San Francisco, India, and China. In order to develop synergy in a globalizing Rakuten Group, foreign technology teams, team building, and the sharing of information is essential.
Rakuten's Technology Conference is a multidiscipline web-technology event. As there continues to be innovation in Web technology, the software industry and web-service companies and their representatives are invited to discuss the latest topics and trends. This is an excellent event for those that wish to speak about web-applications and ideas.
