A very simplified but a typical day as an engineer at Akari! 

PC Environment

Every employee at Akari is supplied with a MacBook Pro. As an engineer, we connect this to a display monitor. Did I say monitor? I meant monitors! Each engineer gets 2 monitors with fully customizable placement / implementation. Keyboards and mouse differ depending on the person and if there's anything else you want, you can apply for new equipment! 

Why a Laptop? 

Akari is has a headquarters location and also rents share office spaces as satelite locations in Tokyo. If you want a change of view for the day, or just a breather, employees are encouraged to go to the share office. Even in the office we have a round table that employees can use whenever working at the desk gets tiring. In order to enable maximum mobility, Akari supplies a laptop to every employee.  

Commonly used Editors and Languages 

The most common editor is the multi-functioned Visual Studio Code. Some people use Sublime Text. As for language, the most common are  TypeScript and Python. We also use Angular and Django to develop our in-house CMS Okra. We also update our tech blog so be sure to check that out for more!
