Markforged, a Cambridge-based 3D metal printing company, hired Jason Eubanks as the company’s chief revenue officer this month. Eubanks has experience scaling high growth companies, which is helpful since Markforged experienced revenue growth of over 300 percent year over year while introducing its new metal 3D printer to the market. Prior to joining Markforged, Eubanks was the global vice president of sales at Twilio, a leading developer platform for software embedded communications.

As Boston-based tech company Perfecto flirts with the idea of an IPO, the company brought on Michael Carus as chief financial officer this month. Carus brings over 20 years of experience as a technology industry executive, and will guide Perfecto, which makes a cloud-based platform for web, mobile and IoT software testing, through its next phase of profitable growth. Prior to Perfecto, Carus was the President of Red Vision Systems, a provider of title searches and real property data consultancy solutions.
