Electrical Engineer

| Watertown
At Markforged, we are on a mission to unlock the next 10x innovation in design and manufacturing. We build an Industrial 3D Printing Platform to liberate designers and engineers from decades-old, slow part creation processes. NASA, Google, Ford, Amazon, Siemens and thousands of companies in 50 countries use Markforged to print same-day prototypes and produce stronger end-use parts than they did before. With Markforged, customers are able to ship 50X faster, spend 20X less, and build products that are 23X stronger.
Join us and control the future of manufacturing.
With the Mark One, we brought an order of magnitude strength increase to the 3D printing industry. The custom boards and firmware we developed for this unique printer are a robust base system. Now it's time to blow past the industry standard open-loop systems and push our machine towards full automation. Help us take our products to the next level and bring metal-strength manufacturing to the masses by joining our growing Electrical Engineering team.
The EE team is responsible for designing and testing circuit boards, developing firmware, specifying cable harnesses, and ensuring EMC compliance for all of our products. We operate lean, iterate constantly, and have a real passion for building things.

  • Iterate on existing PCB designs.
  • Prototype and characterize new sensors, actuators, and control schemes.
  • Modify and improve the firmware that controls our printers.
  • Collaborate effectively with our software and mechanical engineering teams.
  • Perform automated testing.

We're looking for people who have:

  • Expertise in control systems and PCB design
  • Minimum Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering or related field, or equivalent industry experience
  • Demonstrated understanding of physics fundamentals.
  • The ability to learn new technologies quickly.
  • A strong portfolio of past work and personal projects.
  • Proficiency in embedded programming; ARM, AVR, or Microchip experience preferred.
  • Strong grasp on C/C++ for embedded applications.
  • Ability to code comfortably in Python, or willingness to learn.
  • Competency in Linux.

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.

Materials R&D Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at Markforged on the Solutions team. After taking the initiative to learn, attend trade shows, and help with training sessions, the growth of the applications team allowed me to graduate to the role of an Application Engineer. Markforged has continuously allowed me to use my increasing expertise and skill set to grow my career.

Application Engineer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Business Ops is responsible for the systems architecture, processes, and data that will allow Markforged to scale efficiently. We start every morning with team stand-up. We cover sales, channel, marketing, and office ops - so we communicate often to stay coordinated in Markforged’s fast paced environment.

Hoppy

Vice President, Business Operations

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Making sure that as we scale we are still moving quickly. We have grown a lot, and I think the real complication is that we now have a lot of legacy products. The most important thing is that we never stop supporting customers and those products. You can't forget about your last printer while you're working on your new one.

Julie

Director, Product Management
