Job Description

Bilingual Japanese-English General Analyst

About the position:

LegitScript is a fast-growing, Portland-based company that performs cyber investigations and Internet monitoring in the healthcare sector and other high-risk areas. We are beyond the startup phase, but we have retained the best parts of a startup mentality (read: We are creative and collaborative! We have fun! We wear jeans!).

We are cybercrime superheroes doing everything we can to make the Internet a safer and more transparent place. Our historic focus, which is expanding, has been on the online healthcare product sector, where we analyze and report on rogue online pharmacies and other websites selling dangerous healthcare products. Our mission includes protecting consumers from dangers like deadly psychoactive highscosmetics that contain mercury, "all natural" supplements that contain dangerous pharmaceuticals, and illegal online pharmacies that fake their certifications and sell prescription medications to anyone who asks


We’re looking for a hardworking, detail-oriented, positive-minded candidate who is fluent in Japanese and English to join our analyst team.  You would help us research and monitor the high-risk markets on the Internet. The position will require you to develop familiarity with the regulation of prescription drugs, dietary supplements, controlled substances, adult content, gambling, etc.

Candidates must be authorized to work in the US. LegitScript does not offer visa sponsorship at this time.

Apply if the following list sounds like you!

  • Fluent in Japanese and English (reading, writing and speaking)

Please note, this job requires a steep learning curve. We devote several months of intensive training to all new analysts and provide them with the necessary background information and research tools they will need to become successful. Because the training is a substantial investment, we are looking for candidates that have a lot of ambition and drive, who are seeking a long-term, growth position.
