DarkMatter: Purpose-Driven Work

What brings hundreds of people and over 60 different nationalities to work for a young company headquartered in the Middle East? It’s the opportunity to work with the world’s best minds for an important purpose: innovations that make a smart and safe digital world.  This purpose-driven work starts at home in the UAE, the country most at risk of cyberattacks, because it does not, as yet, have the same digital protections as the rest of the world.  DarkMatter is changing that.

Get to know some of our best and brightest, and learn –from those you can trust– why DarkMatter is a great place to work. 

Change happens every day – in a good way.  

– John Rose, Cyber Architecture & Engineering

Why Darkmatter?

I had a really great job and it paid really well, but it was a bit stale. I needed a challenge, so, when DarkMatter came along, I couldn’t say "no."

We’re not a startup anymore, but there’s still the opportunity to actually influence how things are done. And I like the way that it’s dynamic from day to day. It’s different; you really can’t plan. As for the clients and the systems that we work on – I thought I worked on complex systems for the Australian government or the utilities that I used to focus on, but this is an order of magnitude greater.

What does it take to succeed at Darkmatter?

It’s a team game; we’re all team players, so you would have to be team oriented. Being a dynamic environment, you’d need to embrace change; change happens every day – in a good way.
