Why work at ISR Cebu

Why ISR

ISR’s flagship product, CloudGate was launched alongside Google Apps (currently known as G Suite) back in 2008 as a login authentication and access restriction service. It addressed the security concerns of Japanese companies regarding the use of the cloud. As more and more companies put their trust in CloudGate, ISR continues to grow exponentially, now serving more than 720,000 users in 1,500 companies in Japan as of end of March 2018. Within this firm foundation, ISR branched out to Cebu as the first step to entering the global market.

ISR Cebu was initially established in 2016 to aid in the development of CloudGate. With the quality talent in the Philippines we have now evolved into the main development and quality assurance hub for Japan’s leading SSO solution.

As the company works towards entering the US market, ISR Cebu plays a key role for the success of this global expansion. Cebu’s growing development team along with the current efforts to establish a dynamic marketing team are essential in providing the best service to our customers and helping bring the company to new heights.

Culture and Environment at ISR

We are a culture of passionate, collaborative, and respectful people. We are curious about finding the most strategic solutions, while being fearless in our pursuit of pushing the limits to deliver the highest ROI possible for our clients.

Diverse Culture

Diverse Talents

Led by an American president who loves Japan, our company houses diverse talents from 8 different countries: America, England, Belgium, Mexico, the Philippines, China, Sri Lanka, and Japan. This diversity allows our company to offer a modern global touch to a good old Japanese company.

Challenging Environment

Because ISR is multicultural and multilingual, we deviate from the standard top-down pyramid-like structure typical of most Japanese companies. No matter which position or level an employees is, he or she can raise his/her hand to volunteer to contribute to certain roles.

We also offer business trips to the headquarters in Tokyo so that members of ISR Cebu can learn from their Japanese colleagues, share their own knowledge and skills, and immerse themselves in a different culture and environment.

ISR highly welcomes each employee to build up their experiences and to continue to grow and challenge themselves.

"There’s no substitute for practice, so: read and write as much code as you can and expand your horizons. At the end of the day, as a software developer, you’ll spend most of your time trying to find elegant solutions for a myriad of problems. The more variety in your training, the more it will feel like you actually know what you’re doing, and the less it will feel like you’re trying to drive in a screw with a hammer."

“Starting the office in Cebu has been an amazing journey, in large part because Filipinos are friendly, hardworking and eager to learn. With an initial team of only 4 developers, we were able to successfully deliver our first project: end-to-testing, which increased the quality of our product CloudGate and reduced the time needed for testing.”​
