Backend / Infrastructure Engineer

| Watertown
The Future of Manufacturing
We are the strongest team in an industry where software has been under-appreciated for far too long. Manufacturing tools and software are stuck in the 90s and iteration time is measured in weeks rather than hours. Markforged has proven to the world that same-day hardware development is not only possible but accessible today. Help us fulfill the promise of 3D printing and bring metal-strength manufacturing to the masses.

As a Backend / Infrastructure Engineer you will be responsible for building out and scaling the systems that power our 3D printing platform. Our team is still small (6 engineers) so you will have tons of upfront project ownership and responsibility. We move at a breakneck pace but refuse to compromise on quality. We believe in “doing it right the first time” and investing in code quality, testing, tooling and infrastructure. Your ideas will directly influence the company's future. You will do interdisciplinary work on physical systems and learn from best-of-the-best engineers across MatSci, Mech-E, EE, and Software. 

This is for a full-time, regular employee role based in our Watertown, MA office.

  • Capacity to learn new skills, educate others, work autonomously, and make decisions with minimal supervision.

What You Will Work On

  • Design, build, and maintain APIs, services, and systems across the Markforged software platform.
  • Architect a scalable backend to store the world's 3D data and allow seamless collaboration between users.
  • Work with a wide range of technologies to solve problems from end-to-end.
  • Build new features for internal and external users.
  • Development on the Debian-based IoT system that powers the printer.
  • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes.
