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.


Executive Assistant & Office 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.


Head of Strategic Partnerships

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.
