Hardware Systems Integration Engineer at Formlabs (Somerville, MA)
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 printers sit in the middle of an interdependent ecosystem of software, mechanical, and electrical components. Ensuring printer success requires deep technical knowledge of the product as well as an ever-evolving understanding of how the product behaves in the field.
This role involves supporting all parts of the product development cycle from early R+D to continuing engineering for shipped products. In addition, you’ll collaborate closely with design teams to overcome cross-disciplinary problems and ensure that we ship quality products. If you’re eager to collaborate with other Systems Integration Engineers to support the full range of Formlabs products, we want you as a Hardware Systems Integration Engineer.
