Step One was established in Kobe, Japan, with a mission "to provide the highest quality software development services available."

From the beginning, our obsession has always been to help develop flawless products. As our business progressed and we moved towards specializing in embedded products, we realized more and more the impact our development had on the daily lives of consumers, and we changed our mission to its current form to reflect this.

Our mission is to make technology transparent to consumers by providing the highest quality embedded development services to product makers.

What drives us is the prospect of making people's daily lives simpler so they can form stronger bonds with the people around them.

We make connections through embedded technologies!
