We look forward to working with you

What you can expect

At our headquarters in Hamburg, Germany, you’ll be working on the latest generation of biometric products. The tech stack and the combination of hardware and software are therefore unique, as is the interplay of IT and biometrics. Whether in the field of Technics, Projects & Quality Management, Biometric Products (R&D), Sales, or Administration – in our individual teams we work on important and socially relevant projects that are applied in particular to the serious business of security. This does not mean however that we forget to enjoy our work along the way.

Who we are

We’re an owner-operated company, managed in a similar style to a family business, with flat hierarchies, as well as fast communication and decision-making channels. We describe ourselves as a “speedboat”, reacting swiftly to individual customer requests and sometimes even realizing the seemingly impossible. The team spirit at the heart of DERMALOG’s corporate culture – firmly established and widely regarded – helps us to achieve this.

We’re always looking for unusual profiles, and enjoy thinking outside the box.

What we do

What we’re working on

Besides the human fingerprint, the face, iris, palm of the hand and other features are also suitable for biometric identification. In other words, for identifying a person’s unique characteristics. Thanks to our intensive research and development work, and our success realising key projects around the world, we’ve continued to consistently expand our product portfolio.

DERMALOG’s various teams now support government institutions and private companies operating in a wide range of sectors with their biometric products and solutions. As a company, we protect the identities of millions of people, meaning that we carry a great responsibility towards societies all around the globe.

Frank, System Engineer

DERMALOG is the best employer I’ve ever had. You really feel you’re appreciated and wanted. This is clear from things like the technical standard that workstations are equipped to, but also in small things like chocolate being distributed around.

Jan, Systems Engineer

DERMALOG is a comparatively small company where one individual person can make a lot of difference. That really motivates me. The hierarchies are quite flat and there are plenty of opportunities to develop and grow as an individual.

When it comes to developing biometric systems, classical disciplines like software engineering are just as much in demand as new approaches such as AI.
