Product Owner

Startbahn, the leading art tech company in Asia, has developed Startrail, a sustainable and scalable blockchain infrastructure that assures the reliability, authenticity, and traceability of artworks, including NFTs. We are also developing our own service Startrail PORT and providing API to promote the use of Startrail. Furthermore, we have joint ventures with businesses that have art content and sales channels. We are looking for a Product Owner for these projects to support developments of our services. Since we are dealing with art, which is high in its public nature, we plan to collaborate with businesses outside of Japan as well.
