Machine design engineers must have the ability to visualize what machines look like from the points of view of the people who create the machines, the people who assemble them, and the people who use them.

People who lack the ability to stand in someone else’s position are not cut out for design work.

Machine design is strongly associated with science and engineering, but in reality, an artistic sense and flexible imagination are also extremely important tools.

This is why we seek out people who have a thirst for exploring the landscape of Japanese monozukuri, not only those who know about CAD, science and engineering.

Some of our employees at M DRAFT started with no experience – nothing more than a desire to become machine design engineers.

I still draw upon my own experience of seizing a chance to learn the technology behind machine design and diving into the study.

I still remember discovering one day that my cumulative experiences of accompanying my superiors to work sites and studying had suddenly turned this insurmountably challenging job of designing things into a source of fulfillment.

In this spirit, we at M DRAFT seek out people who are ready to try new things and learn in all situations. This positive attitude toward learning creates an environment where we can tackle various challenges.

Of course, we have a robust system for leading employees along the path toward becoming professionals. If each and every employee sets goals and continues to push their individual limits, the company will grow. We want to pool our abilities and resources to create a richer, more abundant future.

We eagerly await passionate challengers who are brimming with vitality.
