About Us

DUST Identity provides security, integrity, and traceability to the world’s supply chains. DUST, or Diamond Unclonable Security Tag, uses diamond particles as unique and unclonable markers on individual items. Think of a barcode, but invisible, unfalsifiable, and made with diamonds! With DUST, customers can ensure that every physical object — whether an airplane part, microprocessor, or priceless work of art — is verified, authenticated, and ultimately, trusted.

DUST Identity is a fast-growing venture-backed startup at the intersection of innovations in materials, hardware, and software. DUST Identity is looking for new team members who are eager to take on the challenge of building the industry standard for physical object identification and security.

    An Insider's view of DUST Identity

    What are some social events your company does?

    Our team loves exploring our neighborhood for new food and once a week we have an outing to find a new "hole in the wall." We are ending the year with our first annual team offsite in a Catskills' lodge - it will be filled with team building and outdoor activities.

    Suki

    Process Improvement Manager

    What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

    From parts in fighter jets to tomatoes in the grocery store, how do we know that products are genuine and produced according to the seller's promises? Identity is the key to trust. We create trust by providing an unclonable fingerprint for physical things that securely binds objects of any size to their digital records.

    Peter

    VP of Operations

    What makes someone successful on your team?

    Initiative and inquisitiveness. Since joining I've seen a culture that fosters assumption challenging, creative problem solving, and ownership. I think anyone who is excited to listen actively to others; engage with and challenge ideas; and drive innovation would thrive at DUST.

    Chris

    Head of Cloud Services
