Tokyo-based Wahl and Case specializes in discovering, placing, and retaining the best tech talent for the most innovative companies. We’re damn good at it. Our expertise, extensive networks and deep, deep relations with innovative companies, especially startups, allow us to deliver world class value, again and again.
Wahl and Case was founded in 2010 with a purpose: to bring back the respect the recruitment industry deserves. There is nothing more important than people to building companies, but the industry has self-inflicted a poor image. The recruitment industry was stale, and ripe for what we had to offer: Wahl and Case was created to deliver the absolute best recruitment experience possible, while always looking to innovate. We quickly became leaders of the local tech recruitment scene, finding a particular affinity with startups. Nowadays we cover ad tech, consumer, enterprise and fin tech, as well as having a superb engineering and creative practice. The company has one rule: do what’s in the best interests of our candidates and clients, always. We have no other rules. That is our mission.
A couple years in to our journey, we opened an office in San Francisco off the back of client requests. Today we have even more requests from our clients to help them expand internationally, and we expect many more office openings in the years to come.
Wahl and Case is a recognized industry thought leader with a team that’s diverse in every way. We may be different inside, as well as out, but we are a tribe of wonderful people with good hearts, working to change the recruitment industry every day. We love what we do.
I received a tremendous opportunity from Wahl and Case and was able to land an amazing job running localization for Netflix in Japan. My Wahl and Case consultant, Misha, gave me a lot of support and preparation and really went the extra mile to answer all my questions and concerns.

I wasn’t landing interviews. Wahl and Case told me that although I had some good brands in my background I wasn’t selling myself properly. They helped me upgrade my CV, including adding client names and my Hubspot certification. When I was too busy working on freelance projects, they were kind enough to speak with me at length on a weekend. They also recommended getting into marketing technology, which is a huge growth area, and introduced me to DJI, Payoneer, ACN and Amazon, giving me a solid perspective on the market. Thanks to Wahl and Case, I’m now happily employed at Datorama.

What’s so amazing is that Wahl and Case have their own networks in the industry and the inside track to exclusive positions. They’ve also got good insights to offer, and can tell you what your strengths and weaknesses are. In my case, after some discussion, they recommended the AppsFlyer position, which really suits me.

We’ve been very impressed with the Wahl and Case team both here in Tokyo and in San Francisco. They’ve shown an in-depth understanding of our business and culture, and have a proven network of unique talents with a global mindset. Our bar for hiring is very high, yet they’ve consistently brought us brilliant prospective candidates who’ve turned into excellent additions to our engineering team.
Wahl and Case has been an extremely reliable source for strong talents for Meltwater Japan thus far. On top of that, their support has been very aligned with our expectation, and for these reasons they will continue to be our go-to agency for high-quality talent search in the Japan market.

Wahl and Case provides more dedicated attention to finding the best applicant/employer fit than other recruiting firms I’ve worked with, and has a more precise understanding of Tokyo’s startup scene. They do a better job of filtering out positions that might not be a good culture or skill set match, saving both the job candidate and potential employers valuable time. After my great experience as a job applicant, I now use Wahl and Case to recruit new talent for my company; they continue to impress!
