We actively support those who are committed to challenging themselves.

We lend out PC monitors for those who are working from home. Metcela is a company that continues to evolve by listening closely to the feedback from our team members and commit to new initiatives.

What you can do at Metcela

Fast learning and risk-taking

As a flat organization, opportunities to tackle new challenges are open to all employees.
In every task, there are many opportunities to innovate, and every day is a repetition of trial and error.
Success requires risk-taking and taking on new challenges while also being persistent and paying attention to the details.

Gain experience with a global mindset

Heart failure is a global issue, we need a team with a global mindset. Our lead pipeline will be first approved in Japan, and we will seek following approval around the world. Using the knowledge we gain from the clinical trial in Japan, we will expand overseas. We value employees with experience in diversity and inclusion, as we are becoming a global company. We encourage all employees to network and gain perspectives from diverse colleagues.

Balancing work and personal life

We introduced 5-consective paid holiday to encourage our employee to utilize the paid holidays. We have a 100% utilization rate of this program every year. Our hourly-paid holiday, flexible working, and flexible work-from-home system lets the employees use their time effectively and achieve a good work-life balance.
