About Us:
Digimarc Corporation (Nasdaq: DMRC) is a global leader in product digitization, delivering business value across industries through unique identities and cloud-based solutions. A trusted partner in deterring digital counterfeiting of global currency for more than 20 years, Digimarc reveals a product's journey to provide never-before-available intelligence and promote a prosperous, safer, and more sustainable world. Our Digimarc Illuminate Platform makes every item our customers produce intelligent and interactive by connecting the item to a cloud-based record of its attributes and journey via many types of tags, including QR codes, RFID, NFC, and of course, digital watermarks.  

The cornerstone of our Illuminate Platform, the Digimarc Digital Watermark is an identification technology unique to Digimarc that provides an unparalleled level of covertness, ubiquity, redundancy, and security. Both in reach and performance, digital watermarking represents quantum leaps forward from traditional auto identification technologies, and enables any object to be reliably, efficiently and securely identified by industry standard imaging and audio technologies.  

There are many important uses for the platform we have built. Our current SaaS products address critically important, world-wide problems that are vastly improved by our high-barrier-to-entry, unique offerings that: protect currency and consumer goods from counterfeits, reduce food waste, improve food and drug safety, provide a direct-to-consumer digital communication channel, improve the efficiency of physical retail shopping, and increase the quality and quantity of plastic recycling by revolutionizing today’s ineffective waste sortation.  
As we continue to expand an inflecting -- and ultimately massive -- market opportunity that we are uniquely positioned to lead, we will productize additional use cases that work together with existing use cases to provide accretive value to our customers and allow them to complete their digital transformation journeys.  Because with Digimarc, you can finally see everything. And when you see everything, you can achieve anything.  

Are you a catalyst for change?  An innovator at heart?  At the cutting edge of Artificial Intelligence (AI)? A steward for sustainability? If those are some of the attributes that describe you, then read on. At Digimarc, we are looking for ambitious bring-it-on problem-solvers dedicated to doing what’s right for the planet. 
Our teams are curious and courageous. We are innovators and dedicated risk-takers. Yet our decision-making is always grounded in our core values. We believe that Digimarc’s Illuminate platform can address some of the planet’s most challenging issues such as plastic waste and the impact of climate change, the threat to consumer safety posed by counterfeit products in our supply chains, and the provenance of digital media in the age of generative AI. We believe the talent of every employee can make a difference. Come join us to contribute to a better future.
