Whatever you need to be productive, we’ll provide – from a laptop and standing desk to a Haas VF-4 milling machine and leather dye.

Food for Thought

You're a piece of our puzzle


We don't hire people to fit our culture - we hire people to add to it. It's incredibly important to us and why we anchor our company in these four cultural cornerstones:

  • Hire diverse and amazing people
  • Take care of each other
  • Delight our customers, present and future
  • Build value for ourselves and our company

They influence everything we do and ultimately, the success of our mission: A world where anyone can print anything.
