【Who we are】

Metro Engines Inc. is an IT start-up providing innovative services, mainly for hotel industry, that utilize AI and cutting-edge technology.

We develop and market various services such as our flagship product “metroengine”, a revenue management tool with full use of artificial intelligence / deep learning.

To date, hotels have been setting prices based mostly on intuition and experience which makes the performance of the hotel dependent on the ability of the hotel managers. Furthermore, it has been very time-consuming and virtually impossible to collect all the relevant information for decision making in a precise manner.

We believe that, by taking advantage of technology, it is possible to dramatically improve operational efficiency and let hotel managers use their time on tackling more fundamental issues such as services and meals to increase the value of our client hotels.

About half of the 40 members working in our Tokyo headquarter are non-Japanese engineers, which makes the workplace atmosphere quite international.

【Position we are offering】

We are looking for a project manager who will manage the development of our own web services.

Major existing projects include property management tool for vacation rentals, competitor research tool, review analysis tool, SEO tool, revenue management tool (all for hotels).

We also develop demand prediction system and dynamic pricing system for many different industries such as rental car and car parking.
