Koala is a high growth ecommerce startup originating in Sydney, Australia. We sell furniture for the digital age, and have become famous in Australia and Japan via our approach to marketing & retail more akin to a tech-company.
In just 2 years in Japan we have attained significant growth, leading to several media pickups such as on King’s Brunch on TBS, Casa Brutus, Antenna and Yahoo Japan amongst others.
Sleep as a category is very much under-utilized and has high potential in this country, and Koala has positioned itself as a future leader of quality sleep products in both Japan and Australia.
Combining customer-centric products, and a fulfilment platform that enables us to get furniture to most people Japan-wide in 24 hours, we’ve set out to change the way people buy furniture online.
We are bringing a modern, data-driven approach to revolutionize an ageing industry

Treehouse Perks and Privileges
Koala is only as good as its employees are happy - and we’re one happy international bilingual bunch! We offer our teams flexible working options and the freedom and autonomy to do their best work in a way that works for them.
Whether that’s working your own version of 9-5, working from home in your pajamas from time to time or hanging out at our Treehouse (this is what we call our office digs in Omotesando), or enjoying the 20 days of annual leave (+public holidays and sick leave), you decide whatever helps you find your flow! The Treehouse has plenty of social activities to get involved with and help you get to know your fellow Koalas better as well as free Koala products for all employees - who better to shout from the tree tops how awesome our products are, right?
We also recognise that we can’t grow as a brand unless we support the growth of our teams so this is a strong focus for us.
All in all, the is a great place to hang out in and belong to!
Koalities we look for
At Koala, we do things a little differently and we don’t shy away from the fact that we expect a lot from our employees! We want you to challenge expectations, always look to make a difference and give us something different from the norm.
We want people that bring great energy, that have a long-game focus and are always curious to find new angles and approaches to the way we work.
We're a team full of entrepreneurial spirit and have a relentless focus on 'what's next' but while always reviewing 'what's been done' and learning, growing and adapting.
We're confident, but NEVER arrogant and super adaptable. Honesty and selflessness drive everything we do, as well as a total focus on exceeding our customers’ expectations.
So if you feel like this could be you... drop us a line, and let's see what you've got! ;)
