R&D Engineer

Carbon, Redwood City

Stop prototyping. Start producing.

Working at the intersection of hardware, software, and molecular science, we are committed to delivering on the promise of 3D printing, enabling commercial customers to go beyond basic prototyping to 3D manufacturing.

Our company is built on the idea that when diverse fields of study come together, we are able to solve challenging problems. We have grand dreams to build technology that will influence industries around the world. You will be joining a diverse team with a dynamic culture, where team success is as important as celebrating individual contributions.

We are looking for an individual with a strong materials background to join our Print Development team to help us understand the processes that impact the material properties of our resins.  


  • Work with Print Development and Materials teams to understand each step in our process: printing, washing, baking, etc. 
  • Design and execute experimental plans to test how print and bake parameters influence the variability in material properties.
  • Characterize printed parts and extractables by dimensional accuracy as well as using instrumentation such as Instron, GC-MS, DMA, TGA, etc.


  • BS, MS or PhD with a background in materials science, polymer chemistry, chemical engineering or any related technical degree in engineering or science
  • Strong theoretical and practical understanding of polymer chemistry: UV and thermal polymerization 
  • Organized with high attention to detail
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Structure-property relationship and experience with design of experiments is a plus
Carbon is an equal opportunity employer. 

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.
