Sun* Inc. is a digital creative studio boasting 1,500 engineers, designers, and strategic consultants in and out of Japan. Sun* was born out of the vision to realize Digital Transformation (DX–earnestly evangelized by the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry as the next generation of industrial infrastructure) through comprehensive solutions such as upstream designs, programming and development, and human resources growth. Using the same practical approach cultivated through product development for over 300 companies, Sun* promotes open innovation as a replacement for old-fashioned ways of thinking, and offers every necessary solution to reach the goal of DX.
Engineers will be responsible for the Startup Studio service, which provides support to "partners with ideas" (clients), from service design to technology selection to development. In addition, engineers will work on the design and development of mobile apps, proofs of concept for major corporations, as well as participate in from-scratch project planning stages.
What is Startup Studio?
Since establishment, Sun* has led over 300 startups and products to success. Sun* wants to widely share that knowledge, data, and professional startup experience–not only with a limited number of people. Startup Studio is a program enhanced by Sun*'s unique assets, aimed at early-stage startup ventures.
