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

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
