Applications Engineer

Department: Product
Location: Somerville, MA


To reinvent an industry, you have to build the best team. Join Formlabs if you want to bring ground-breaking professional 3D printers to the desktop of every designer, engineer, researcher, and artist in the world.

Formlabs is growing its Applications team to continue to push the boundaries of accessible desktop 3D printing. Our team engages in experimentation and collaboration to develop processes, tutorials, and white papers to inspire and inform Formlabs customers and the 3D printing community at large.

Be one of the first to work with unreleased resins and help realize their potential by immersing yourself in advanced processes, ranging from industrial mold-making and digital dentistry to contemporary craft. Use your technical know-how and curiosity to develop resources that help our customers engage new audiences and ultimately drive sales. If you’re more interested in the digital workflow than post-print processes, help us evaluate and recommend end to end solutions, incorporating scanning, 3D modeling or parametric design. The applications team pursues projects that are high risk / high reward, so a good sense of priority and personal project management is required. Join us an Applications Engineer!
