Our chat with CEO Junya Yamamoto

Today we sat down with Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Junya Yamamoto who explained what makes IBL such a special place to work and grow. In 2012, Mr. Yamamoto moved to Viet Nam to work for a Japanese startup initiative and within three year he helped grow the business from seven members to more than 100 and expanded the company to multiple entities across five countries. In 2015, he co-founded IBL with the mission of transforming businesses with practical blockchain R&D solutions while empowering Viet Nam to be the global blockchain hub. In just a few short years, Mr. Yamamoto’s expertise has led IBL to now support a staff of well over 200 talented professionals and become the blockchain ecosystem leader in Viet Nam with business development and partnerships spanning the globe.

Why did you choose Vietnam for IBL?

Viet Nam is an exciting country with an amazing culture and tremendous potential for opportunities. Blockchain was still a fairly new concept when we started IBL. People were familiar with Bitcoin but only had a general understanding of blockchain. Since blockchain R&D was unfamiliar everywhere, it was quite challenging to start an R&D company. This meant that any country we picked would become the leader in the blockchain R&D field. Viet Nam has great power and potential for the long term IT growth. The other benefit is that the government and regulatory frameworks are very supportive of IT initiatives.

Has IBL’s growth met expectations from your colleagues?

Again, when we were starting IBL, blockchain technology development was very new. There was plenty of buzz about blockchain technology but nobody understood its potential for practical applications or how blockchain would change the world. Even just a few years ago, our ideas were considered far too ambitious and nobody believed we could make them a reality. In just a few years, not only have we made our plans a reality, we have exceeded expectations through huge growth and adopting new projects and initiatives! We certainly proved them wrong!

What words of encouragement do you have for anyone interested in applying?

In addition to our inspiring practical applications of blockchain R&D that are leading Asia, we truly have one of the best teams to join in the entire world. We offer amazing opportunities to travel internationally, career growth and development, and a chance to work in an exciting new industry with a company that is leading the charge. We are growing with Viet Nam and the global ecosystem. If you feel like you would be a great fit at IBL, we would love to hear from you! Please send us your application!
