Mujin new office - the place where innovation is born

Image
We are happy to announce that the Mujin team has moved to a new location with a bigger office space! Mujin has an interesting time now. Business is growing, the team is expanding, and new challenges make us feel excited. Like most founders of fast-growing startups, Mujin founders spent a lot of time worrying about office space. We moved several times for these 9 years, growing fast and successful.
When the Mujin office moved into our previous large office close to the Tokyo Skytree in 2017, everyone thought that we had enough room for growth. Our engineering department provided new solutions day by day and required more and more robots to be inside the office and we just needed more and more desks for newcomers.  Two years later, our founders decided to move again, but this time to an office 8.5 times bigger, where everyone will have enough space for creativity and productivity. Mujin relocated its headquarters to a more spacious, state-of-the-art facility in Autumn 2019. We have alr…

Mujin marks it's 9th anniversary on July 6th, 2020!
It's a very special day. Exactly 9 years ago Rosen and Issei established Mujin (check more about Mujin Story). Mujin has the best and extraordinary employees with equally high aspirations and dreams. They have worked against all the odds that occurred in these 9 years to make what seemed impossible, possible.  Congratulations Mujin team for all your efforts and accomplishments!

Unfortunately, due to the current circumstances, this year Mujin will not have …

Hungry? There is a free lunch!

Image
People connect over food - that’s why we meet friends, family, or dates for dinner or drinks. Sharing a meal brings us together and encouraged us to interact on a personal level.

Team building during lunch is a great way to increase cooperation within coworkers, improve communication among teams and, as a result, the power that comes when co-workers have fun together. That’s why one of the many benefits at Mujin is a free buffet-style lunch made fresh every day by our chef (please check our #benefits).


At Mujin, the original idea was to eliminate as many distractions as we can and continuously support our talents. All they have to do is think about coming in, and we, Mujin, take care of everything else they needed during the day.
But lunch time has become something more than just another meal. It has become a core part of our culture and employee satisfaction: it is a space for creativity, collaboration, and authenticity. Lunch time is now a venue for relationship building between te…

Saint Valentine's Day at Mujin

Happy Valentine's Day 💝
Today we had a Valentine celebration during the lunch time! While Mujin family is growing very fast, we value such warm-hearted culture.
At our lunch, our chef also prepared delicious hot chocolate, chocolate cake and brownie, and we enjoyed the atmosphere!
We all have friends at work! Valentine's Day isn't just for romance! Celebrating Valentine's Day in the office is a a chance to celebrate the vitality of workplace friendships. We decorate our dining and participated in special Valentines activities.


We share our “workplace love”! We use sticky notes to leave some warm messages to our friends  at Mujin whom we offer our heartfelt thanks and appreciation! So many meaningful messages, love it!
One more activity is a cookie decoration! We provide small heart shaped cookies and special deco pen for icing. Looks like our employees have so much fun while doing it! Most of them draw hearts and immediately eat it (no time for the photo 😆), some of…

Speak & Lunch at Mujin

Image
Just like how misunderstandings can occur in our daily lives, when we communicate with someone from a different background or culture, miscommunication within an organisation can be a big problem. The same problem might be understood or viewed differently by different employees. 
Imagine that all your employees come from different backgrounds (Diversity: everyone is unique) and speak different languages. It would be very difficult to communicate effectively. So, how do we deal with this? Clear communication within an organization is one of the keys to success. 
In Mujin, there are employees from 21 different countries. This fact makes Mujin a global company. A global company united by a common language.

During Speak&Lunch
It is said that people are shy to speak another language because they don’t want to make mistakes in front of others. At Mujin, we share two common languages: Japanese and English. Mujin provides weekly Japanese classes for those who want to learn, and to help so…

Diversity: everyone is unique

Image
What is cultural diversity?

The Oxford Dictionary defines cultural diversity as "the existence of a variety of cultural or ethnic groups within a society". A diverse workforce employs people from all walks of life: all  backgrounds, genders, ages, races, religions, and abilities.

Our team at Mujin is composed of members with 21 different nationalities. We all came from different cultural background, we all have different lifestyle, and our way of communication is also quiet different. We all have our own stereotype about each country, even if we hear or read something about a certain culture. It’s important to realize that this doesn’t mean everyone from that particular background acts/thinks/believes the same thing.  

In Mujin we encourage our employees to get to know each other better where we can do our own research and learn about people, understand how each person is unique and valuable for Mujin.  We don't judge each other's political, religious or national vie…

Team bonding: brewery tour

Image
Since we are all gathered and living in Japan, why not experience the culture together  Japan’s culture lies in Sake production. Blessed wit quality water and a climate that is very suitable for rice growing, Japan has been producing Sake from rice for more than a thousand years. Mujin employees enjoyed sake tour last year! 
The tour starts with the brewery CEO thanking you for coming as well as talking a little about the tour itself. He told us that the previous weekend they had a couple people who didn’t make it and were so drunk that they had a tough time helping them home. One person was stuck at the brewery till 7 p.m., so they were probably passed out for a few hours.



The tour then heads into the main brewery. The CEO was conducting most of the tour and explained about the brewery process.  He was pretty funny and explained that the rice used in sake brewery had a unique smell. After the starches are broken down by the koji mould, it has a similar smell to natto (fermented soybea…
