Software Engineer - C++ / Python
Location: 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.
Software is at the center of our product development - it bridges the transition from digital models to beautiful physical form in 3D printing.
Formlabs continues to develop one of the most powerful and intuitive desktop print applications on the market: PreForm. In addition to the user-facing side, our software also determines the machine movements required to produce a physical object from a digital model. We use code to control multiple actuators, sensors, and a high precision laser system. Producing perfect 3D prints requires developers who have a deep understanding of the electromechanical process.
If you have an engineering background to understand the physics of our printer, and are excited to use your software expertise to improve our product, we want you as a Software Engineer.
