Position Summary
You will be responsible for preparing, printing, and processing 3D printed models in our lab. Our group bridges several departments and works on internal research projects, as well as preparing sample parts for customers. As such, Production Specialists must be comfortable with handling multiple tasks at once in a fast-paced and deadline-driven environment. Team members will need to become experts of the software, the 3D printers, and the post processing techniques that we use. Our department is dynamic and processes are evolving quickly.

About Carbon

About Carbon WHO WE ARE Carbon works at the intersection of hardware, software, and molecular science. Our vision is a future fabricated with light, where traceable, final-quality parts are produced at scale with CLIP technology. CLIP — Continuous Liquid Interface Production — makes this vision possible by combining engineering­-grade materials with exceptional resolution and surface finish. HARNESSING LIGHT AND OXYGEN TO PRODUCE OBJECTS FROM A POOL OF RESIN, CLIP is a photochemical process that eliminates the shortcomings of conventional 3D printing by harnessing light and oxygen to rapidly produce objects from a pool of resin. From everyday products like tennis shoes and electronics, to industrial components, to highly customizable medical devices, CLIP makes it possible for creators to design the parts and products of the future.
