It started like this

Xloudia started as a side project for LM3LABS during the summer 2012 when the 4G LTE technology started to be deployed by Japanese telecom operators, a few years ahead of the rest of the world. For the first time we seriously considered using image recognition on mobile phones which are, by nature, CPU and memory limited.

A large project from the Okinawa Prefecture authorities helped keeping Xloudia afloat from Day 1 of development. 

No second mortgages, no credit card debt, no investors. We love seeing businesses start small, fund themselves with paying projects, and build up a strong API, so that's how we run Xloudia. As a result, we only answer to ourselves and to our customers.

Xloudia redefines what is mobile commerce.

Self-funded, self-motivated

Since Xloudia is self-funded, profitable, and quickly growing, we spend our time improving our product and listening to the people who use it. We chart our own course, we craft our own vision, and relish the freedom to make bold decisions. Sometimes, that means using resources to build something necessary for our history. Other times, it means devoting time to supporting interesting clients' innovative projects in consulting projects.

We are learning, always

We are mostly foreigners in Japan and we have learned to learn, we have learned humility and we see the world differently.

We try to stay small and focused on our job with key people onboard, relying on a large network of external expertise.

We encourage our team to grow in their current roles and dream about what's next. Employees have opportunities to attend events, share their work, and take time off to learn new skills. Why don't you join us?
