Print System Engineer

Markforged, Watertown, MA


At Markforged, we are on a mission to unlock the next 10x of innovation in design and manufacturing. We build an Industrial 3D Printing Platform to liberate designers and engineers from decades-old, slow part creation processes. NASA, Google, Ford, Amazon, Siemens and thousands of companies in 50 countries use Markforged to print same-day prototypes and produce stronger end-use parts than they did before. With Markforged, customers are able to ship 50X faster, spend 20X less, and build products that are 23X stronger.

The Print System Engineering team tackles issues that impact customer print outcomes. Engineers on this team are faced with new challenges and problems to investigate and solve on a regular basis. If you like new and different challenges, this is the team for you.

This position is for the mechanical engineer who always thinks outside the mechanical realm and understands that our products are a complex system with user, software, electrical and dynamic components. This is not your typical design job with a small, detailed scope - it covers all parts of our product and your work is seen in every customer’s print. Are you ready to make a direct impact?

  • Design, prototype, and release mechanical solutions to existing products
  • Work with Manufacturing to implement solutions at the assembly and production stages of existing products
  • Diagnose and root cause returned warranty parts to expose trends and solve customer issues
  • Collaborate with Customer Solutions to create and improve documentation

What we look for:

  • A broad experience with systems that involve various mechanical, electrical and software components. Can you CAD? Build test fixtures of your own design? Make your own PCBs and circuits? Write Python scripts? If so, you’re on the right track.
  • Experience with 3D parametric modeling software, SolidWorks preferred
  • An open personality, ready and willing to openly engage with various team members
  • Understanding of and personal experience with various manufacturing methods
  • A minimum of a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering or related field, or equivalent experience
