Hello, I'm Paul Roberts...

I’ve been a tech recruiter in Tokyo since 1999. Over the years, I’ve helped hundreds of IT people find the next step in their careers and partnered with dozens of companies (including some of the biggest global names in technology, banking, insurance, and more) in their hiring of talent.

If you’re looking for a tech job in Japan or hiring for your team, you’ve come to the right place. Search my job board for IT jobs in Japan that I’m working on as an agent and for direct job listings from selected partner companies, or contact me for advice anytime.

100% non-corporate and non-boring!

I’m one of the few Tokyo IT recruiters with a hands-on technical background, making it easier for both my clients and candidates to get the results they are looking for. But mine is a human business at heart, and I pride myself on a reputation for taking care of the people I’m working with, on both the candidate and client sides.

This is my personal site – a space to write about topics that interest me, such as recruitment, tech, living & working in Japan, the stories of some of the fascinating people I’ve met, and anything else that piques my curiosity.
