Why Work with us

This is a really exciting time to join VERIDAPT. We are on a journey over the next 3 years to grow and operate in totally new markets.

We are a small group who now enjoy a blend of working from home, and coming into our North Sydney office. We have found through COVID that we work perfectly well remotely and so are not returning 100%, but like to meet in person regularly to stay connected and collaborate on interesting work. We will consider remote workers with a preference for APAC timezones.

Be part of a genuine team that will innovate how multiple industries use technologies to improve data and analytics for improved supply chain security and verification. We have a unique environment in that we design, develop, test, manufacture and deploy all hardware and software from our North Sydney offices.

**IMPORTANT** if you are not eligible to work full time in Australia please do not apply. Sponsorship is not available for this position, and we cannot support those with restricted working hours.

We do not use 3rd parties or recruitment agencies to fill our vacancies and accept no liability to pay any fees for any introductions.
