Financial technology, or “fintech" is a broad term taking in several different sectors, but is beginning to refer to specializations such as blockchain, identify, online and offline payments, remittance, and crypto currency. Like many other disruptive tech, fintech faces challenges surrounding regulators and security, thus most of our clients have prioritized building relationships with local banks and regulators first before scaling more aggressively. Wahl and Case has successfully placed many candidates in the fintech space, and our representatives often attend key industry events, so we have access to a strong network of talent we can introduce you to.Read our success story
Engineers & Creatives
The biggest trend in the past five years is the number of foreign engineers and designers that have been imported to meet the growing demand for technical and creative talent. Full stack engineers, mobile application developers on Android and iOS, and UIUX designers are particularly in short supply in Tokyo. Japanese language skills have become less of a priority as the skill shortage deepens, putting pressures on an increasing demand for bilingual project managers to bridge the language gap. We have helped many of our clients in Japan with the relocation and visa approval process of offshore talent to move to Japan successfully.Read our success story
We operate in a very niche market and sourcing high quality candidates is extremely difficult. Wahl and Case continues to outperform my expectations. I value them as a trusted partner and am excited about our future together.

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!
