BE CRAZY FOR QUALITY
No SHIFT ASIA, No Shift to the Next Paradigm.
SHIFT ASIA was a subsidiary of SHIFT, Inc. headquartered in Tokyo, Japan and was established in May 2016 as a strategic Asian hub for the parent company and part of the SHIFT Group alliance. SHIFT JAPAN was established in 2005 with the mission: To make an impact on the world with the “Made in Japan” quality. In November 2014, SHIFT listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange Mothers. Since then we’ve become the Number One Quality Assurance company in Japan.
The initial goal was to provide a one-stop shop for the entire Asian region in software testing. We pride ourselves in the ability to serve our customers with the speedy delivery of the highest quality with efficiency. We have a proven track record in many industries such as financial systems, logistics, ERP packages, E-Commerce, web services, smart phone application, games, etc. Owning the “Made in Japan” quality in software testing techniques and practices, we aim to become the World No. 1 Software Testing company.
The CEO of SHIFT, Inc. had a new vision to expand his legacy. SHIFT ASIA had committed to the new paradigm, placing tremendous amount of attention to quality software Design, embracing the Agile Methodologies and rapid Assembly of the appropriate resources based on expertise/talent/appropriate applied technology and finally delivering Economic Quality to the end customer. The new model was referred to as DAAE and being promoted throughout the software development industry starting with Japan. We take pride in adopting the “Made in Japan” quality and were a part of a well-respected company. The CEO took his success and experience while in his twenties in the manufacturing industry and wanted to apply the same principles to the software industry.
In the software development projects, we wanted to use soccer as an analogy. The test engineer was like a goal keeper. In soccer, all members are not only offensive, but must also play defense. Defensive was analogous to the testing in software development.
Software quality related problems such as “programming mistakes”, “system failure” and “software bug” are frequently reported. The cause of all of these issues are mostly due to the neglect of software testing process. If quality software testing was implemented, we can prevent most of these observed failures early and prior to release to production. Thus nowadays, software testing played an important role to ensure the product quality.
SHIFT ASIA took root as a software testing company and has since grown its business into a software development powerhouse. Through many years of testing, gathering data, and learning experiences from its parent company, SHIFT ASIA has leveraged the lessons of software success and failure. With the gained knowledge of what works and best practice in any given industry, whether it’s gaming platform, financial system, or business applications, we applied the best techniques and practices to the meet and exceed the customer’s requirement. More importantly, our goal was to cut the cost of development through proven, effective deployment. We have launched ourselves to become a software development and consulting firm with a vast amount of knowledge backing our claims.
SHIFT ASIA branched its capabilities into cyber security, automation orchestration and provisioning, mobile application development, product prototyping, user experience development, and performance optimization. Recently SHIFT ASIA has committed in investing toward bleeding edge technology research such as machine learning, big data, and artificial intelligence to meet the industry’s trend and need. Moreover, new business opportunities will require fast prototyping capabilities with a wide variety of technology; therefore, we are building modular components for rapid deployment. With this new concept, a new team build with intention from the ground up with fresh ideas and expected contribution from all members. We will put our focus on the DAAE paradigm as the guiding light to all software development.
In the spirit of meeting the goal of SHIFT, we have opened full throttle in seeking a team of full-stack developers who enjoy challenges in this everchanging technological arena. The team will be the centralized concept that embrace synergy to solving problems and offering the best technical designed solutions based on industry best practices. This innovation development team require extreme enthusiasm for industry game-changer technologies. The team will be presented with incredibly difficult problems and will be expected to solve collaboratively. We are looking at YOU to join us in making SHIFT ASIA an international sensation. Be part of the success story now.
