Formlabs: R&D Engineer

To reinvent an industry, you have to build the best team. Join Formlabs if you want to bring groundbreaking professional 3D printers to the desktop of every designer, engineer, researcher, and artist in the world.

Our growing R&D Engineering team is a mix of mechanical, systems, electrical, and software engineers. We are the mad scientists that develop and improve Formlabs products. Our team works closely with other engineering teams to research and product develop Formlabs next-generation printers and materials. We use engineering, physics, and experimentation to turn goop into beautiful and accurate parts.

Do you regularly imagine how to make a complex system work better? Do you love hacking and DIY projects? Do you want to make something that hasn't been done before? We want you as an R&D Engineer.

*Submitting a portfolio demonstrating previous work with your application is required*

The Job:

  • Create new 3D printing techniques - from developing new printer architectures to validating minute changes in galvo control
  • Hands-on role designing and running your experiments using results to inform and develop improvements in software or hardware
  • Tackle complex and open-ended problems across multiple engineering disciplines
  • Evaluate current printer performance for areas for improvement
  • Collaborate with other engineering teams to implement improvements to current products such as redesigning support structure algorithm based on experimental results

You:
