THE TEAM
The Toyota Woven City is a fully connected ecosystem powered by hydrogen fuel cells to be built at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan. It is envisioned as a ‘living laboratory’ and ‘ever evolving,’ incorporating various types of cutting edge technologies. At the same time, it is also ‘human-centric,’ that is, it is expected to keep people safe and comfortable. 
 
Woven City’s R&D team will develop innovative products and services using technologies developed by Toyota Motor Corporation. 
 
Our mission is to: 
1.  Develop services and products for Woven City
2.  Expand capabilities through long-term R&D
 
Toyota Motor Corporation has been involved in a variety of technological development in the  robotics, energy, and automotive domains for a long time. Our team will leverage Toyota’s hardware expertise in these fields to create new value by developing software on top of this. 
 
Our team will develop innovative services that are essential to the city. As a first party developer, we will also build a foundation upon which third party partners can participate. Therefore, we are responsible for not just the applications but also the core software and capabilities.
 
Our team consists of many highly experienced members with international work experience. We strive to be open minded as we create a new culture with members from various backgrounds and nationalities. Our global team works closely with the Toyota Motor Corporation and the Toyota Research Institute in North America to develop our technologies and products.
 
We are seeking talented people to join us as we take on new challenges to create new products and services for the Toyota Woven City.
