Engineer turned Programmer (Software Engineer)

| Somerville

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 generate 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 the engineering background to understand the physics of our printer, and are excited to use your software expertise to improve our product, we have the perfect challenge for you.

Join us as a Software Engineer.

The job:

  • Take experimental software features from research into production
  • Collaborate across engineering disciplines to improve our product
  • Write software to implement production algorithms and print process improvements

You:

  • Are a serious programmer with excellent C++ and Python programming skills
  • Can architect applications and integrate new features into a large code base
  • Have shipped production-ready code to tens of thousands of users
  • Can quickly build internal tools to improve how we test and experiment
  • Excited to work on improving toolpath generation (move lasers, move motors)
  • Equipped to improve existing print algorithms (layout, orient, support structures)
  • An interdisciplinary engineer who is endlessly curious about “how things work”
  • Can lead projects that cut across software, engineering, and research teams
  • Passionate about making the best 3D printer in the industry

Bonus Skills:

  • Computational geometry or OpenGL
  • Software development with Qt
  • Degree or work experience in a physical engineering discipline (mechanical, electrical, robotics, optics, material science)

Our Perks:

  • Flexible Vacation
  • Generous premium coverage for medical, dental, and vision plans
  • Paid parental leave
  • Commuter benefits
  • Unlimited 3D prints

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.
