About Tamago-DB

RECRUITMENT. SIMPLIFIED. Tamago-DB is the easy-to-use, multilingual, multicultural cloud based recruitment CRM and ATS platform designed with modern global recruiting practices in mind.

We are very proud of what we have achieved with Tamago-DB. The original concept was developed by the founder of CareerCross, one of the biggest names in the Japanese recruitment business, due to the constant complaints from recruiting professionals regarding the lack effective data management software that fulfilled the requirements of the multilingual recruitment market in Japan.

After several years of development and testing, Tamago-DB was finally released in January 2014 and we are have been growing our customer base organically ever since.
