Middesk is building the trust layer between businesses.

Where trust between businesses used to rely on a handshake, building trust between modern companies requires a new suite of tools that deliver complete and reliable data at scale. Middesk is on a mission to redefine how businesses build trusted relationships.

Today, there are no reliable and scalable solutions for understanding the legitimacy, trustworthiness, or credit capacity of a business. We're building the end-to-end solution for companies to verify, screen, and monitor their customers. To do this, we're looking for individuals who think about problems holistically and in-depth, who are relentlessly curious, self-starters, and determined to drive ideas from inception through to completion.

Middesk is a Y Combinator company and is backed by the top VCs in the world including Accel and Sequoia Capital. We’re led by an experienced team that has experience growing and scaling companies like Checkr and Zendesk.


Why join us?
  • We're a small driven and focused team. Today, it's the two founders and we're looking to add folks to the founding team, really building the foundation for the future of the product, business, and platform.

  • We recently participated as part of the YCombinator W19 batch (https://techcrunch.com/2019/03/19/best-of-y-combinator/) and raised a seed round with investors including Accel and Sequoia Capital.

Engineering team and processes

Part of the job will be to develop the engineering processes, adapting those processes as the team grows.

Technical Challenges

We're building a solution to better understand the identity of a business. Within the US, there's no central repository for this information, so identifying the record for one of the 30 million entities is a bit of a crap shoot. The 10,000 foot view is building a solution that values accuracy and aims for a higher fidelity record, changing how this process is fundamentally performed.
