Hello, we're Formlabs

We’re a passionate team of engineers, designers, and problem-solvers. Started out of MIT in 2011, Formlabs now employs over 250 people across offices in Germany, Japan, and China. We're committed to bringing powerful and accessible fabrication tools into the creative hands of professionals around the world.

An Insider's view of Formlabs

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Culture is extremely important at Formlabs and in the early days (when there were only 10 of us) everyone was naturally very close. We were a pirate crew of friends, out solving interesting and challenging problems. As Formlabs became larger, we knew we wanted to try and preserve the small-company culture that made our team like a family. With now over 200 people combined in our Boston and Berlin offices, the goal is to “keep Formlabs weird,” which is really just a fun way of saying, “let’s keep things interesting.” Since we are trailblazing the way for a new era of low-cost manufacturing, keeping things interesting isn’t difficult. Most of the things we work on have never existed before, which opens the doorway for individuals to contribute their own new ideas to the future of Formlabs.

Formlabs

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Formlabs is a rapidly growing company that is leading the desktop 3D printing industry and revolutionizing in-house manufacturing. Everything we’re doing and creating has never been done before. We are a work-in-progress organization and that makes it exciting to work here while providing lots of opportunities for growth.

Formlabs

Formlabs regularly attends meetups and we’ve just started hosting technical talks at our Boston HQ every Thursday. We also travel to technology trade shows all over the world and strive to stay in touch with young engineers through our involvement with programs such as BU Artemis and the Women in Technology Program at MIT, just to name a few.

Formlabs

In order to understand how Formlabs has revolutionized the 3D printing industry, you really have to go back to 2011 and survey the landscape. The 3D printing craze was in full swing and the market became flooded with low-cost FDM machines. These consumer-level printers were great for small projects and hobbyists. But there really weren’t any options available for small businesses, entrepreneurs and professionals who needed high resolution, low-cost manufacturing in-house. Formlabs was the first company to bring an SLA 3D printer to people’s desktops and allow them to prototype real-world products without shelling out tens of thousands of dollars. This was a massive game changer for medical researchers, jewelers, film makers and so many other professions who were suddenly able to produce things in-house that were never before possible due to cost and quality. Starting off as an MIT afterschool project, we’ve swelled over the past few years to a now 200+ person company. I think it’s safe to say that we struck a cord in the market!

Formlabs

One thing I really love about Formlabs is that everyone here is extremely active. We regularly have people organizing everything from whiskey tastings to ice climbing in some of the nearby mountain ranges. The interest-diversity here is vast and people are quick to jump in and learn something new. Just to name a few of my favorite internal “clubs” and groups, we have Booklabs, Filmlabs, Whiskeylabs, ping pong tournaments, Fitness Bootcamp, yoga, Ragnar, summer camps, hackathons, karaoke nights, soup groups, hikes and so many other things. If there’s something you are interested in doing outside the office, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll find a bunch of people here willing to do it with you.

Vision
  • So many brilliant weirdos with so many cool interests in and outside of work. People work really hard, but also seem to strike a good work-life balance. There seems to be a lot of camaraderie and trust within teams - people don't micro-manage one other and everyone is really supportive... If you thrive within fast-paced chaos, Formlabs is a good place for you. Unlike other chaotic environments I've worked in, people aren't overprotective of their time and are always willing to jump in and help with whatever.
    Glassdoor Review
  • The short list of pros: incredibly smart people that you will learn from every day, meaningful and high impact projects, great company culture and vision, catered lunches (3 a week), pets in the office, flexible vacation and hours, beer on tap, happy hours and parties, ultimately just a great place to be.
    Glassdoor Review
  • Work hard, play kind-of-hard culture. Transparent communications and accessible, supportive colleagues. Positive environment. People Operations team is a gift. Great space (high ceilings, big windows) and perks (lunches, snacks). Fairly flat structure. Entrepreneurial.
    Glassdoor Review
  • Formlabs is an amazing place to work. I am surrounded by intelligent, passionate, curious people and am constantly learning from others. I feel like my work is valued and recognized by both my peers and people above me. Employees are encouraged to explore their own interests through free 3D printing as well as shop resources. Great office location with many lunch spots nearby for the two days every week we don't get catering.
    Glassdoor Review
  • A fun and challenging workplace, the best product on the market, the best team around me, and endless opportunities to grow
