To learn more about Markforged, please visit https://markforged.com.
Our software technologies and tools empower our customers to configure print-ready parts, visualize part geometry in 3D, and push to IoT-connected printers for printing. As part of the Software Engineering team, you will be helping to lead the scaling and growth of our 3D printing platform involving end-customer applications and IoT services. 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 Materials Science, Mech-E, EE, and Software.
As a Senior Software Engineer focusing on Algorithms, Geometry, and 3D Graphics, you will work on our slicer -- the engine that translates a 3D model into instructions for the printer. This includes both the algorithms (mesh generation, medial axis computation, etc) and user interface (for visualization and editing). You will be enabling new printers, materials, and features that allow our customers to print industrial-quality parts that will be used on the factory floor and directly on consumer products.

In this role you will:

  • Design, build and maintain our Slicer to transform customer parts into machine instructions
  • Implement cutting-edge geometric algorithms that unlock the potential of our 3D printers
  • Continuously optimize our code and data structures for correctness and speed
  • Build internal tools to help our engineers visualize, instrument and debug the 3D printing process
  • Work closely with R&D engineers to perfect print quality across our lineup of devices and materials

What we look for:

  • 5+ years experience building and shipping high quality code
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or related Engineering field
  • Strong background with 3D graphics, computational geometry and relevant math (e.g. linear algebra)
  • Strong intuition for physical systems
  • Understanding of polygon mesh modeling and file formats
  • Broad technical knowledge in object-oriented design and implementation, design patterns, and software development methodologies.
  • Ability to thrive within a cross-disciplinary team with both technical and non-technical members
  • Passion in keeping up with the latest advances in 3D printing and computational geometry
  • Ability to take ownership of a project and execute it with technical excellence
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills
  • Pride in driving projects through to production that enable customers to solve their problems
  • Know your way around a UNIX shell

Bonus Points

  • Excellent command of Javascript
  • Experience with contemporary web development frameworks (Node, Angular, React/ Redux, etc)
  • Experience profiling and improving software performance
  • Experience with web-based visualization frameworks (Canvas, D3, Three.js, WebGL and more)
  • Experience with CAD/CAM software and 3D modeling libraries
  • Experience with robotics
  • Advanced degrees such as Master's or PhD in fields such as Computer Science, Mathematics, Software Engineering, Physics
  • We use Apple computers and G-suite collaboration tools. While experience with these tools is not required, the ideal candidate will be excited to broaden their knowledge and embrace change

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.
