In Japanese, Rakuten means "Optimism"

Contrary to a pessimistic market vision where digital platforms aim to replace the players who prospered before the advent of digital, Rakuten cultivates an optimistic vision of the digital transformation of commerce. This philosophy is reflected in each of the group's actions: both with its partners and with its internal employees.

Rakuten is committed to building a better and more optimistic future by empowering individuals, businesses and societies to take on all their projects and achieve success in their professional and personal development.

With the support of Rakuten Group and its thousands of Engineers among the globe, we are targeting quality excellence by following industrial processes to deliver our products and serve our consumers with a minimum of risks.


Rakuten DX has initiated a continuous improvement process to measure and limit its impact on the environment. We have contributed to the group's approach with the creation of the Shift application, which allows all of the Rakuten’s business units to share content, capitalize on points reinvested in eco-responsible actions.

Shift was created with the goal to empower more than 1600 employees spread across 14 countries in the EMEA region to shift their minds and habits to live more sustainably, both at work and in their private lives.

To achieve this and due to the prioritization of Digital Inclusion, Shift is designed as a Progressive Web App (PWA), enabling the huge variety of different mobile handsets and connectivity types to engage with the same user experience.

The experience itself is rich and varied. By applying the theory of change that Rakuten developed and that takes employees on a journey to learn, act and then influence their peers with their acquired knowledge. The app encompasses gamified actions which result in trees planted, articles, videos, interviews, quizzes, challenges, competitions and much more.

Well-being at work is also a strong value of the company with equipment such as electric desks adjustable in height and a shower for athletes, but also convivial activities (breakfast, team meals and other outings). Services make it possible to reconcile professional and personal life.

Regarding training and Tech events, the investment is strong to support our teams, and we are sponsoring a very nice local event dedicated to Tech conferences in Montpellier.
