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!

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'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.


        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.
