VIEW JOBS 8/21/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-11-19T00:00 Glowforge is a beautiful device that sits on your desk. It uses a laser to carve and engrave products from raw materials like wood, leather, acrylic – even cardboard. There is an incredible demand for what we're creating. It's not a geeky tool for the tech elite or a garage workshop; we're crafting an iconic product that is going to change the way people think about creativity. Our customers include consumers, digital designers, crafters, engineers, teachers, artists, and more. It's already the biggest crowdfunding campaign in history, and now that it's available at retail, the fun is really starting. This is a full-time role in Seattle, and we are happy to help new employees relocate to this beautiful city. Why We Need You The challenges we face in developing our hardware span an incredible range of technologies, from optics to robotics and fluid dynamics to injection molding. However, our customers expect a product with a seamless experience, where the mechanical details disappear into the background as the amazing things that they create on the Glowforge take center stage. You are a critical piece of making this a reality. Without you working these challenging technical puzzles as we rapidly scale our production, our company simply will not succeed.

You need these qualifications: * A four-year mechanical engineering degree (or equivalent experience) * Active contributor to a complete Design-Build-Test iterative cycle. * Mechanical CAD proficiency. * The ability to perform engineering calculations to drive design decisions * You have used metal processing techniques, such as stamping, machining, or welding * Available to travel to help see your designs come to fruition It would be nice if… * Your designs have been utilized for a production design or manufacturing line * You have experience designing custom mechatronic systems. * You have experience designing custom test fixtures. * You have Finite Element Analysis software experience. * You are familiar with various engineering plastics and their applications. * You have worked directly with suppliers and contract manufacturers to bring your ideas to life. Send us a resume or a link to whatever showcases your skills the best. If a resume isn't handy, a Linkedin profile or personal projects website are great as well. Please share with us a note about your interest in us. We look forward to hearing from you! One more, very important thing: we are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We're strongly committed to providing equal employment opportunity for all employees and all applicants for employment. For us, this is the only acceptable way to do business. Glowforge Seattle WA
