Pocket Change is a Tech Startup located in Tokyo. Our main business is operating kiosks located in airports and other metropolitan areas. The technology allows the kiosk to instantly exchanges bills and coins of various currencies into electronic money, vouchers, or charitable donations to be used in your country of choice.
Say goodbye to the change in your pocket, and hello to Pocket Change! We help travelers coming to Japan, and Japanese travelers going abroad put their leftover currency to good use. Simple, secure, and fast.
Pocket Change team consists of 30 members, of which many are experienced developers. The members develop, operate, and maintain approximately 70 pocket change kiosks nationwide. The culture and working environment of the company itself are startup-like.
Recently, we have released an electronic currently platform called "PokePay", taking advantage of our experience in handling both cash and electronic money. (https://pay.pocket-change.jp/)
PokePay is an easy, open platform where anyone can issue their own original e-money or rewards system for free. The issued money can be exchanged with each other in the application, or can be exchanged for existing electronic money gift coupons. All done quickly, easily, and securely on your users'/customers' smartphones. Easily scaleable to be used by individuals, stores, or regions.
At present, the company is still in its early stage, so each member's opinion and work is considered to be the power to further expand the company. We look for people who want to hack the real world and innovate society.
