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 Software team continues to develop one of the most powerful and intuitive desktop print applications on the market: PreForm. Fine-tuning the geometry of models in space is one of the most complex challenges our Software Team tackles -- such as: Path planning and tool path generation, motor control for the printer, print success estimation (failure mode detection, typically using FEA/FEM, computational fluid dynamics, etc.), geometry (mesh slicing, polygon arithmetic, mesh repair and generation), support structure generation, printer/desktop communication, and dynamic, real-time print failure detection (computer vision, machine learning).

If you are a talented engineer who is excited to dive into with 3D geometric algorithms and other challenging problems, we want you to join the Desktop Software Team as an Algorithms Engineer.

The Job:

  • Develop world class desktop 3D printer software with a focus on geometric algorithms
  • Work with R&D teams to integrate newly researched features into the production PreForm codebase
  • Ship value-generating features to tens of thousands of users by implementing and optimizing a wide range of complex algorithms
  • Work with Product Management teams to define long-term feature roadmap

We value diversity at Formlabs, and work to remove unconscious and unnecessary barriers to build the best team possible. While we’ve outlined what an ideal candidate could look like, we know that you may bring something unanticipated and essential to the team. If you’re reading this and can see yourself contributing, please apply

You:

  • Ready to collaborate with a wide range of technical disciplines, including Software, Hardware, and Design teams
  • Experienced in C++ object oriented design and development
  • Excited to study computer science journal articles to supplement algorithm development

Bonus Skills: 

  • Experience developing 3D graphics or computational geometry
  • Experience with solid mechanics or FEM
  • Experience with image processing

Our Perks:

  • Flexible vacation
  • Premium coverage for medical, dental, and vision plans
  • Paid parental leave
  • Commuter benefits
  • Unlimited 3D prints

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

An Insider's view of Formlabs

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Culture is extremely important at Formlabs. With now over 400 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 too difficult!
