Careers at IDT

For more than 35 years, IDT has been enabling genomics laboratories with an oligonucleotide manufacturing process unlike anyone else in the industry, with the most advanced synthesis, modification, purification, and quality control capabilities available.

​​​​​​​Dr. Joseph Walder established IDT in 1987 with a dedication to innovation, the highest standards of quality, and a promise to maintain deep genomics expertise. From this strong foundation, IDT has evolved from a leading oligo manufacturer to a genomics solutions provider supporting key areas such as next generation sequencing, CRISPR, synthetic biology, and PCR, equipping researchers with the right tools when they needed them. With these core efforts, IDT teams have been behind the scenes helping to drive science forward with increased quality, volume, efficiencies, and unmatched customer service.

IDT today

Technology is evolving faster than ever before. Scientists leading the transition from basic to translational research face new challenges with securing the custom solutions necessary to advance their research out of the lab and into the clinic. These emerging barriers have collectively slowed down critical discoveries with potentially profound impacts on human and ecological health.
To help overcome these obstacles and push the boundaries of technology, IDT has expanded production facilities and capabilities to include GMP* and cGMP manufacturing grades. These additions provide customers with a genomics solutions partner capable of supporting the entire research journey. 

IDT’s infrastructure supports customers around the globe with its manufacturing headquarters situated in Coralville, Iowa, USA, with additional manufacturing sites in San Diego, California, USA; Boulder, Colorado, USA; Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA; Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA; Leuven, Belgium; and Singapore.

IDT's impact

As we look to the future, IDT’s updated mission—accelerating the pace of genomics—honors our legacy and represents a commitment to the pursuit of new ideas that will help us realize our shared vision of enabling researchers to rapidly move from the lab to life-changing advances. Combined with a renewed collaborative agility, the IDT team, customers, and strategic partners are positioned to contribute to the greatest genomic breakthroughs of our time—guiding more effective vaccines, addressing world hunger and climate change, and driving new diagnostics and therapeutics for complex diseases.
