【SF diary Vol.26】Interview with foreign employees! Part.3

Hi there, it’s Takahashi.



Our website has been redesigned, hoping to make it easy for everyone to read and to understand.

Our aim is to make our site easier to use for everyone than ever, and will continue to enhance the content, Thank you for your continuous support.



Today at last, I continue part 3 of our ‘Foreign Employee Interview’. This time, I introduce to you Stromberg Bjorn (25 years old) from Sweden. He works at Tokyo branch office.

By the way”Bjorn” means ”Bear” in Swedish (^^) That reminds me・・・! When my daughter was a baby, I used the baby carrier from the brand called “Baby Bjorn”, the character of the brand is “Bear”. Now I remember!

Q.1 What kind of job are you currently working on?
I develop Unity and Windows applications.

Q.2  How did you find a job in Japan?
I got a bachelor's degree and graduated from the Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden last year, decided to leave a bit away from my study, so I came to Japan and started job hunting.  And I was introduced System Friend from the person in charge of job offer guidance service for foreigners. I showed a sensor demonstration to my current boss and I was able to get my job.

Q.3 What surprised you the most when you started working at System Friend?

I was a little surprised because this company doesn’t treat foreigners differently. As soon as I started working, I received instructions such as direct correspondence with customers.


Q.4   What do you think is the best thing about System Friend?

I think the Tokyo branch office is small and cozy, it is a good thing to be able to get along with everyone. I can drink free coffee and tea as much as I want, and it is also very nice.

This is Bjorn at work.(?) He looks enjoying himself so much! :D

If the work environment of System Friend is making  it easier for foreign employees to work, it is a pleasant thing to know.

Actually, System Friend is chosen of "Fifty Japanese Companies Providing Successful Careers for Highly-skilled Foreign Professionals", we introduced our efforts as a good example of foreign recruitment. Please have a look!
