Members from every continent
As ZenMarket has grown, we have continued to hire people from all around the globe. As a result of these efforts, as of September 2021, we can proudly say that we have members representing 6 of Earth’s seven continents. We are keeping an eye out for applicants from Antarctica but haven’t had any luck yet.
Our staff represents over 25 countries, including Ukraine, Russia, Canada, America, France, Spain, Germany, Thailand, Indonesia, China, Singapore, Egypt, Uruguay.
The list goes on, but I will leave it there for now. We have grown into this diversity because we insist on hiring native speakers of each language version. As a result, ZenMarket has achieved a level of diversity that you don’t see in many companies here in Japan. Even when compared to certain large Japanese companies in Tokyo, you will often see rates of international employees max out at around 20 to 30 percent.
While we only have 14 language versions of our site available at the time of writing, we are in the process of growing that number and intend to have at least 20 languages available on our site this year. It seems like we will only keep getting more global for the foreseeable future. However, it might be some time before we find someone from Antarctica.
