Our Mission

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.

Your Impact

As a Senior Software Engineer on the DUST Authentication Engine team, you will be a focal point for developing and scaling the underlying diamond security technology for rapidly growing customer needs. You’ll work with everyone from R&D to the customer facing product team to materialize new solutions for growing data sets and multiple process integrations. As part of our collaborative, team-centric approach, you will also work with our hardware, materials, and R&D groups on various cross-discipline projects. Alongside the day-to-day work, you will be a key part of growing the engineering and company processes and culture.

  • Collaborate with members across both the software team and the entire organization to understand customer needs and system constraints.

    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.


    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.


    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.
