About DUST Identity

DUST has developed a supply-chain security solution that uses nano-diamonds to securely tag physical objects so they are uniquely identifiable. Think of a bar code, but invisible, unfalsifiable, and with diamonds! Founded in 2018, DUST Identity is an MIT spinoff, backed by top-tier VCs, that is taking on a vast global market opportunity. We aim high, and need self-starters and problem solvers who thrive when challenges are great, and potential is greater.

About the Position

We are in the process of maturing our platform from a POC designed to support multiple sales engagements to a robust production ready system. If you are excited about the opportunity to design and develop the infrastructure that you always dreamed of, driving scalability and efficiency through expertise and creativity, then this is the role for you!

A candidate must have demonstrated previous experience designing and building scalable SaaS and platform based systems.

We are looking for knowledge and experience, but above all care about character and cultural fit.

DUST Identity is an equal opportunity employer.
