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.
