SafeTraces is a rapidly growing start-up that is marketing a unique traceability and authentication technology with a wide range of applications. Our edible markers enable full traceability and authentication of the product, not just the packaging. They are applied during food processing to trace the product and obtain rapid source assurance. During sanitation, the markers are applied to the wash water to verify proper sanitation processes, providing assurance of a food’s effective sanitation.

We are looking for a software developer with a breadth of experience ranging from controlling the devices that apply markers to products to the online information systems that manage the data and APIs that power our food safety solutions.
