SHIFT is seeking business partners who can grow together. Through business and capital business alliances, SHIFT has solved problems such as difficulty (1) hiking rates due to being a subcontractor, (2) hiring talent, and (3) scaling despite technological capabilities. We would like to share some of our M&A case studies where businesses joined the SHIFT Group, leading to mutually beneficial business growth.

SustainabilitySHIFT`S ESG Policy

“We seek out new value concepts and work sincerely to provide value to the world.”Since its establishment in 2005, SHIFT has been conducting business activities based on this corporate philosophy while expanding the scope of influence in the information technology field. There are many issues related to software products that should make our lives more convenient, such as overwork due to a shortage of IT personnel, chronic structural problems in the software development industry, and security incidents such as personal information leaks. As a team of professionals in the software quality assurance and testing business, which has few competitors in the industry, SHIFT continues to grow based on a diverse range of initiatives aimed at improving not only the IT industry, but also the entire society, with the aim of “realizing a smart society.”
