Work environment

At Axsh we strongly believe in flexibility, comfort and freedom. The flexiblity allows everyone at the company to create a healthy relationship between work and family. There is no dress code, we have flexible working hours and do our best to provide anything our employees need to work efficiently. Programming is a creative task and the environment needed to get those creative juices flowing is different for everyone. We want everyone to be comfortable.


To make sure everyone can work efficiently, computer hardware is kept at a high performance standard and updated regularly.

To make sure everyone can work comfortably, they receive an Aeron chair, and a large desk to accommodate their two to three displays.

We continue to aim to create an environment where every person can grow professionally, talents are nurtured and skills are developed.

Axsh official offline meeting and nomikai at Sirocco

Birth of our official offline meeting and nomikai at our own wine bar Sirocco

In 2021, Axsh started having our official offline meeting and nomikai at our wine bar "Sirocco."

A take on the traditional Japanese nomikai has become a company tradition. Sirocco is a wine bar owned and operated by Axsh, and our chefs prepare all of the food for us, and they put out a wide array of beverages (wines, beer, sake, whiskey, etc.) for us to enjoy a good nomikai together.

These events are informal and often accompanied by various discussions in English, Japanese, or both, depending on your comfort level, with help in translating if and when needed. Unlike a traditional nomikai, there is no social pressure to attend, the food and beverages are free for our employees, and anyone can come and leave at their discretion.
