About the Company

SeedTech Inc. was established in January 2021 as a Japanese subsidiary of NexSeed Inc. which has produced over 2,200 global talents in Cebu, Philippines since 2013.

"NexSeed Inc. was established in January 2021 as the Japanese subsidiary of NexSeed Inc.

The mission of NexSeed Inc. is to support Japanese companies that want to take on new business challenges but lack the development resources to do so, and to support people who want to acquire programming skills and English to be active in the world.

Our Services:

(1) Offshore development business (Seed Tech Lab)

We operate a business co-creation lab where talented engineers from the Philippines develop web and application software. We support companies that want to create a new business but do not have the engineering resources to do so, and our young and abundant engineering resources in the Philippines to create IT services together.

(2) Education Business (Seed Tech School)

We provide programming and English classes. We provide the two skills necessary to be active in the world through IT study abroad in the Philippines and online.

More than 2,200 graduates are already active in 16 countries around the world and 30 graduates have started their own businesses.

Work Responsibilities

We are looking for a PM Engineer for our offshore development business, Seed Tech Lab. We want to solve Japan's IT and technology shortages with the help of the Philippines, a developing country! We want to provide more opportunities for talented people in the Philippines! With this in mind, we launched our offshore development business in Cebu last year.

In order to further accelerate our business in the Japanese market, we established a Japanese company. We are looking for a person who can play an active role in the newly established Japanese company.
