What do you like about Shin-Sen-Gumi?
Shin-Sen-Gumi is more than just a place to work. Part of the philosophy that flows through everything we do, instilled by our founder: Kyokucho (Chief Boss) Mr. Mitsuyasu Shigeta, is that we all work hard together and create new roads of growth for each other. As we collectively evolve, we ultimately learn more about ourselves, each other, and strengthen the organization by passing on our inherited knowledge to new team members, we're creating new roads of growth.
