Markforged is reinventing manufacturing so you can build anything you imagine. As the fastest-growing additive manufacturing company in the US, Markforged provides the most affordable metal and carbon fiber 3D printers on the market. Engineers, designers, and manufacturing professionals all over the world rely on Markforged products for tooling, fixtures, functional prototyping, and production parts to optimize their manufacturing operations and supply chains. Founded in 2013 and based in Watertown, MA, Markforged has about 250 employees globally and $137 million in both strategic and venture capital.
We are building a world-class team of Application Engineers (AE) that represent the face of Markforged. If you are mechanically inclined, enjoy a new challenge every day, engineering minded, and thrive in a customer facing environment, you will want to join our Application Engineering team. Within this role, there are two directions that a new hire can take: Content Focused or Technical Resource Focused.
If you are interested in creating compelling content (such as Webinars, Whitepapers, Application Demos, or other special projects) and are an engineer with manufacturing know-how, design intent, and well developed speaking and writing skills then our Associate AE is the path for you.
If you are more technically inclined and you want to be the first technical resource for questions from the field as well as internal sales team then the Associate AE position is also for you. Day to day tasks include running printers, optimizing geometries for fiber pathing and successful printing, answering technical questions, and developing content for use in the field. From this position, progression paths include standard AE roles in both the Field and Strategic teams.
If you believe that you’d be a great addition to this team in either of these roles, please attach a cover letter and portfolio of relevant engineering projects.

In this role you will:

  • Gain expert technical knowledge and proficiency for Markforged products, applications, and the additive manufacturing industry in general.
  • Leverage this expertise to generate innovative ideas for better utilization of our printers with our customers and partners.
  • Develop training content for customers and partners.
  • Provide sales support, solve printing/design challenges tailored to unique applications.
  • Conduct product demonstrations, sales presentations, maintain presence at trade shows and industrial events.
  • Support internal teams (sales, marketing, engineering, product design).

What we look for:

  • Skilled at connecting strategy to purpose - connect customer processes with Markforged product application.
  • Creative, energetic, and motivated self-starters with a high level of mechanical aptitude.
  • Consultative, articulate, and comfortable speaking with inspiration for webinars and training
  • Customer focused who effectively leverage printing tools to solve problems
  • Able to work towards a goal with focus, but flexible and willing to do what it takes to meet organization needs with a start-up mentality.
  • Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering or similar field
  • 0-2 years of experience in engineering or related fields
  • CAD experience
  • Manufacturing experience
  • Willingness to travel up to 20% (Technical Enablement Focus only)
  • Verbal and Written Communication skills required
  • U.S. Citizenship required

An Insider's view of Markforged

What are some social events your company does?

Our office has periodic happy hours and company offsite parties, as well as a weekly all-hands meeting where different teams present and lunch is served.

Daniel

Content Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

Every day for me is a little different. Typically, I'd start the day by checking on the results of some multi-day experiments or pull parts out of experimental furnace runs for our metal system. Later in the day, I'd kick off the next set of experiments, which could be something like a regular print or a special furnace run.

Michelle

Materials R&D Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

We're taking risks here with new technology, and we're asking our clients and partners to do a lot of the same, but we have data that shows that it's worth it. And as we move forward, we're going to continue needing the space. Be ready to move fast, learn, and adapt to changes as they come and as we scale.

Lauren

Enterprise Business Development Representative

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

For the last hundred years, machines have been unaware of what they’re creating and would happily waste millions of dollars producing out-of-spec parts. We’re going to fix that by connecting the machines that make parts, and the ones that inspect them, with a powerful AI software.

Greg Mark

Founder and CEO

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

I think one of the most challenging things as a print systems engineer is learning all the technical and non-technical aspects of our business. We have to know a lot, kind of like a jack of all trades. We have to have our fingers on the pulse of a lot of different teams so that we have a holistic picture of what's going on.
