Six Courses in Total:
1. ABCs of programming
2. Web application development
3. Front-end development
4. Python
5. PHP/Laravel
6. Java

Learning Roadmap
The members’ learning roadmap is envisioned as follows.

Ever since its founding, Uzabase has placed particular importance on business and technology operating hand-in-hand, and has positioned this tandem as its competitive advantage. Our goal is to create a workplace where both engineers and non-engineers from a variety of backgrounds can leverage the power of engineering even further and enjoy taking on the challenges they desire, thus realizing our purpose: “Awaken a world of play in business, with our insights.”

Background of the System’s Introduction

Since Uzabase’s founding in 2008, we have always aimed to combine the power of people and technology in a bid to create must-have business intelligence services. One of our material issues is “Becoming a technology company.” By establishing a new, technology-driven business model, we want to change the way business professionals work, freeing them from labor-intensive tasks andallowing them to do more creative work instead. This is a vision that we would also like to embody ourselves.


With this vision in mind, Uzabase launched its Play Engineering project in April 2022, aiming to awaken a world of play in business with the power of engineering. To date, we have created opportunities for members in non-engineering positions to learn technology and established an internal system that factors engineering skills into evaluations and salaries. 


The System takes our efforts a step further, offering support to members who are willing to take on the challenge of learning engineering. To that end, we have partnered with DMM WEBCAMP (Infratop, Inc.) and will use their expertise to raise the level of engineering capabilities across Uzabase.
