What we do

  • Wantedly Visit
  • Akiko Naka, CEO and Founder of Wantedly

Wantedly is a social networking and recruitment platform that connects companies and talent who share the same values and vision. We currently provide two main products, Wantedly Visit and Wantedly People.

Wantedly Visit allows you to discover and visit companies who share your values. We have around 30,000 companies registered on our service, most of whom are startups or SMEs with big dreams for the future. Working together we pursue a simple goal: increase the number of people who enjoy their work.

Wantedly People is a business card scanning app that organizes your contacts and helps you maintain your network. With over 100 million business cards scanned and counting, we are strengthening and deepening the connections between people.

We believe in boldness. We are committed to creating a world where work drives passion and that means going abroad and taking on new challenges. We currently have offices in Tokyo, Singapore, and Hong Kong, and we are continuing to grow!

Why we do

  • Collaborating
  • Team First!


This literally translates to “Increase the number of people whose hearts dance due to work”. Simply put; we want to help you find work that you love.

Traditional matching between employers and job seekers happens based on salary and benefits. We believe this draws talent away from where it can flourish. Bringing the correct talent to a job that suits their values and inspires them, will enable them to unlock their true potential.

For the job seeker, we know there is a company out there who wants you for who you are. For the company, we know there is a candidate who loves what you do. Our vision of the future is one where they can easily find each other, and together we can build a world where work drives passion.

How we do

  • Wantedly Culture Book
  • The Wantedly Values

At Wantedly, we want to have a visible impact on society. We want to change the way we find work and put people in positions where they can thrive. If we can produce real results at work then that will take us ever closer to our purpose. If we can understand how we produced those results, we can realize how we improved upon ourselves and grew. For us, that is what makes our "hearts dance" at work.

To help us do the above, we have tried to create an organization that allows each individual to focus, produce results and then realize their growth. In order for this to happen at work we need Autonomy, Mastery, and Purpose.

This is when members can use their working environment to act upon decisions they made independently. Letting people make decisions, and then take ownership of those decisions is key to allowing people to produce results. If you are constantly being micromanaged you cannot focus.

Being good at something makes people happy. So, we hope to create an organization where people can feel and see themselves improving and growing. Understanding your growth, and how you achieved it is key!

To create a world where work drives passion! We believe in this. If you do too, come and work with us!
