Meet Some of Our Trainers!
With almost 20 years of experience in the learning and development field, Lance works with engineers to develop diverse problem-solving skills. He strives to make training fun and engaging, and motivate and support people in leading their own learning journey.
Alex’s background is in cyber security — he became a trainer to help people tackle this complex and sometimes intimidating issue. He thinks of training as sharing rather than teaching, and works with everyone to get the most out of their training.
Hoppy became a trainer to share his frontend knowledge with others and to develop his own skills. Training students brings him joy and offers the chance to learn from the different ways different people solve the same problem.
Training Our Engineers to be Multifaceted Businesspeople
Rakuten offers monthly training sessions in over 25 times, covering a wide range of technical and business skills for our engineers. The following are some examples of recent training sessions.
Train the Trainer
This program is designed for engineers who are already experts in a particular subject matter and want to improve their own training skills to be able to share their knowledge and expertise with others across the company.
All human beings have unconscious biases that can both help us, as mental shortcuts, but also very often harm us by preventing us from seeing and interacting with the world as it really is. This training session is aimed at helping trainees to understand their own unconscious biases and learn how to reduce their impact.

This is a hands-on, introductory session on Agile Software Development. By taking part in a game with other participants, trainees learn how they can benefit from Agile Software Development and which specific frameworks might be suitable for them.
