Rakuten Drone UGV Business Department works on the realization of unmanned delivery services by drones and robots (UGVs: Unmanned Ground Vehicles), and the development of new businesses with these solutions.

In Japan, the number of parcel deliveries is increasing with the expansion of e-commerce, while labor shortage is growing more serious with the declining population. Our department aims to solve the problems using technologies such as drones and UGVs, and contribute to growth of e-commerce businesses and create a new market of unmanned delivery.

This project started in 2018, and our department conducted a demonstration in the campus of Chiba University in May 2019 and provided Japan's first UGV-based delivery service for shoppers in Umikaze Park in Yokosuka City from September to October 2019. From 2020, we will develop the UGV-based delivery service toward the official launch, conducting various demonstrations such as operations on public roads.

We are seeking a new team member who can envision the future of unmanned delivery in 2020's, make a plan and implement it in the field to realize the vision. Join us and you can challenge to develop a new business in a small team like a start-up company.
