Senior Front-end Engineer

Watertown, MA
Voted One of Boston's Best Places to Work in 2019, we're a Series-C funded, high growth 3D Printing Startup! We build cutting-edge next generation cloud connected industrial 3D printers that produce parts 50x faster that are 23x stronger and 20x lower-cost. NASA, Google, Ford, Amazon, Siemens and thousands of companies in 50 countries use our printers to produce same-day prototypes and stronger end-use parts than ever before. 

Our software technologies and tools empower our customers to configure print-ready parts, visualize part geometry in 3D, and push to IoT-connected printers for printing. As part of the Software Engineering team, you would be helping to lead the scaling and growth of our 3D printing platform involving end-customer applications and IoT services.

As a Frontend Engineer you will use your extensive knowledge of JavaScript, HTML, and CSS to improve the  web client, a complex in-browser slicing and geometry engine that enables our customers to easily print industrial strength parts with a single click. Our team is still small (6 engineers) so you will have tons of upfront project ownership and responsibility. We move at a breakneck pace but refuse to compromise on quality. We believe in “doing it right the first time” and investing in code quality, testing, tooling and infrastructure. Your ideas will directly influence the company's future. You will do interdisciplinary work on physical systems and learn from best-of-the-best engineers across MatSci, Mech-E, EE, and Software. 

We are looking for an experienced senior engineer who can help us grow and scale a modern front end stack while contributing to the development of features and infrastructure. You will be working on software that powers thousands of printers that manufactures use to accelerate their product development. We need talented engineers to build and maintain the highest quality product as our vision moves forward.

We Value:

    • Desire to get involved in deciding what gets built to solve for the customer and the company

In this role you will:

    • Design, build, and maintain highly performant and functional front end modules and services
    • Architect a scalable frontend application that doesn't break a sweat when handling large complicated 3D printing data
    • Use AngularJS and WebGL to create a beautiful browser-based slicing experience
    • Improve our on-device touchscreen printer operating system experience
    • Build new features for internal and external users
    • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes
    • Maintain stability of the production environment

What we look for:

    • A strong appetite for learning and an ability to leverage what you learn to make our products better
    • Have 5+ years experience building complex, modern web applications
    • Strong CS fundamentals
    • Bachelors degree in Computer Science, or equivalent
    • Excellent command of Javascript
    • Expertise in building complex layouts with CSS and HTML
    • Experience with modern browser technologies
    • Strong UX and design sensibilities, and a desire to sweat the small stuff
    • Knack for troubleshooting complex customer-facing systems
    • Self-­awareness and a desire to continually improve
    • Ability to take ownership of a project and execute it with technical excellence
    • Strong interpersonal and communication skills
