Working at TABI LABO
TABI LABO is media, advertising and a creative agency all rolled into one. From media content creation, total production planning for clients to product development and sales, our company strives to continually expand by delivering experiences that connect with the world. To that end we’re always looking for members to bring about mutual growth.
TABI LABO’s fundamental stance is “what we want, we create ourselves.” While the process is important, the quality of the work is ultimately what we value.
Applying your experience and skills is only the beginning. We look for individuals that are eager to grow by venturing into unfamiliar territory.
We come from different nationalities, backgrounds and expertise, and want members that can not only mutually respect one another, but also not be imitators, allowing their individuality to fully come through.
Media companies overseas have increasingly taken on advertising for major companies. In Japan we see a lot of hidden potential for growth in those spaces.
As a flat organization, we’re less concerned about age or hierarchy, and more about ability and motivation. We have directors pivotal to the company that are young and old, and frequently look to new members to take on new ventures.
TABI LABO is aggressively expanding global operations, with team members coming from many different nationalities. As we increase global hires, it offers a unique opportunity to make a difference in international markets.
TABI LABO from its founding has valued preparing food and eating together. By literally “eating from the same pot” we believe in deepening relationships, and that cooking draws from the same foundation as content creation. Even as staffing increases we take turns as a team to make lunches and dine together.
By sharing our culture of “cooking our meals together” with different people, we can expand our own worldview. JAM Kitchen draws different guests to our office to make the ultimate lunch, drawing in celebrities, Michelin-starred chefs and sushi artisans.
LFMP, or Last Friday Meetup Party is an office celebration held on the last Friday of every month. The events is not only for employees, but also for those important to us—business partners, family, significant others—and is a space where we express gratitude for one another Meals, of course, are hand-prepared.
We hold a Takibi (bonfire) Retreat twice a year. Company retreats typically have a stodgy image, but the purpose of our retreat is simply to “encircle the takibi.” Igniting the fire together, we gaze at the flame and share the same space and time together.
