Mercari India


A place where engineers can 
Go Bold and work with the latest and best technology

At Mercari we see technology as a tool to give our users the best experience possible. We strive to use the best solutions without letting our past practices restrict our thinking.



A look into our core values

  • A nurturing organization

    The type of engineering organization that Mercari needs to have is not one where talented people gather, but one that creates them. By talented people, we mean people who can turn their ideas into a reality, sharpening their sensitivity and decision-making skills by taking on numerous challenges. This will allow us to provide our users with the best experience, and ultimately lead to the kind of society that Mercari envisions.

  • Microdecisions

    Mercari’s ideal engineering organization is a coordinated and flexible organization where each individual can take ownership of their work and make their own decisions. In order to provide the best user experience, everyone should be able to test out their own ideas. This is what we call "microdecisions." We believe that the more attempts you make, the more accurate your strategies will become, and the more growth you’ll see as an engineer.

  • Data-driven

    We aim to build a coordinated organization, where everyone can make decisions to improve the structure as a whole, even as our organization grows bigger. Decisions are made and implemented in various places without worrying about the organization’s hierarchical structure, and we use data to evaluate the results. We want to build an environment where everyone can continuously make decisions and take on challenges, without being afraid to fail.

  • Everyone is a software engineer

    We remove the barriers that divide people involved in software development and call all of them software engineers. Software engineers should use the most appropriate technology to create the features, so we don’t limit people’s roles to a particular technology. This does not mean that we don’t believe in specialization, but we think that someone’s role should not be limited by their job title. The role of Mercari’s software engineers is to use every tool they can to make their ideas come true.

  • Blameless & mechanism

    In order for engineers to be able to take on bold challenges, we need a culture that celebrates not only success but also failure. We can’t have a culture that puts the blame on individuals if we want to take on challenges as an organization. At Mercari, we believe that problems are essentially the responsibility of our organization’s mechanisms, not of our members. Similarly, true solutions should be found in mechanisms. Building mechanisms is the best way for us to solve issues, and they set the ground for us to take on bold challenges.

  • Diversity & inclusion

    Mercari aims to create value in a global marketplace, and we place a strong emphasis on diversity in our organization and team members. It’s not an easy task for members of all different backgrounds, including languages, cultures, and values, to come together as one, but we believe that treating these differences as strengths helps us create a strong engineering organization ready to compete on a global scale.


Career growth and development

We have created the Engineering Ladder to understand and respect the unique skills, characteristics, and diversity of one another, while also creating a strong culture and aligning on the ideal direction of the organization. The Engineering Ladder clarifies the behaviors expected during each stage of an engineer’s path for growth.
