We’re Reinventing 3D Printing

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 Senior C++ Generalist 

The Job:

  • Expand and deepen our desktop and embedded software across multiple printers and new application areas
  • Write code, refine our architecture, participate in key software decisions
  • Be interested in all parts of our software system
  • Contribute to strategic decisions like choosing new hardware platforms


  • An accomplished engineer who is passionate about backend functionality
  • Are a full stack software developer, from systems to algorithms to embedded software
  • Highly proficient in C++, can build complex software products
  • Comfortable with complex algorithms
  • Can lead projects, mentor developers and contribute to software design in all areas
  • Can guide the team in balancing technical debt and shipping dates
  • Are excited to dive into a huge variety of challenges

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company.  We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.  

Even if you don't check every box, but see yourself contributing, please apply.  Help us build an inclusive community that will change the face of 3D printing.
