*Important Announcement*
The health and safety of our employees and candidates is very important to us.
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we are currently facing difficulties applying for working visas and traveling into Japan is restricted. Under these circumstances we are currently unable to extend offers to candidates who are living outside of Japan or do not own a permit to work in Japan. However, we continue to track the situation and once it is safe to proceed with recruiting, we will again open positions to candidates who wish to work at LINE in Japan.

■Job Introduction
As a member of the team, you will design, build, and operate networks for LINE's office buildings, and design Local Area Networks (LAN) and Wide Area Networks (WAN) for interoffice connectivity across LINE's offices worldwide. Note that this role does not include managing PCs or other devices. 

Specifically, you will not only design physical infrastructure for wired LANs but also select, design, build and operate network hardware solutions for our office buildings in Japan. 
The role also involves ensuring that the design and operation of the networks provides users with stable connectivity even when a large number of devices are connected concurrently via wireless LAN. 
Furthermore, with LINE's expanding global footprint, you will not just design LANs that work within a single office building but also design and standardize WANs across LINE's overseas offices to maintain seamless interoffice connectivity through collaboration with LINE's local IT departments. 
Since the team you will join is handling both network design and operation for LINE services, you will be able to get involved in both according to your interests.

- Business level English (both spoken and written), and proficiency in Korean or Japanese  
Note: To help you communicate in Japanese, we will provide you with language support (e.g. interpreters) for up to 12 months in your first year. After that, you are expected to communicate in Japanese without interpreters. You will be provided with an opportunity to take Japanese language courses according to your Japanese level.
