Glowforge Technician, Hardware

Glowforge has created a 3D laser printer: a beautiful device that sits on your desk and uses a beam of light the width of a single hair to create almost anything, from handbags to robots. It can print from raw materials like wood, leather, cloth – even chocolate. And we’ve got more than 10,000 excited, creative, and delightful customers eagerly waiting for it to arrive on their doorstep.

After wrapping up the biggest 30 day crowdfunding campaign in history, we put together a team of incredible people who we are humbled and excited to call our co-workers. We hail from tech giants like Amazon, Google, and Apple, and top startups like Tableau, Tesla, and Evernote. One thing we have all have in common? We want to build see a future where printing a wallet (or a lamp, or a birthday card, or a stunning sushi wrap) is just as easy as printing a resume.

We’re about to introduce the world to a beautiful device that will catalyze a change in the way things are made. In every department, in every role, our company is for people who are passionate about creating things - from handbags to robots. If that sounds like you, we’re going to do amazing things together. We can’t wait to meet you.

Why We Need You

We are a small company with enormous sales and an amazing future ahead. Even as we grow our team, every one of us is leveraged tenfold.

As machines start to pour out of the factory, we’re going to hit speedbumps. At first, we’ll be pulling apart factory rejects to see what went wrong. Later, we’ll be autopsying machines from the field to see what we can improve. Throughout it all, you’ll keep a fleet of machines running in tiptop shape at Glowforge HQ, even though they’re all sorts of Frankenstein agglomerations of new technologies being tested.

You’re the one who’s going to enable our designers to print, our support team to support, our engineers to engineer – you’re going to keep all our hardware running smoothly, and be our foremost expert on what goes wrong and how to fix it. While you’re not going to service every machine yourself, everyone who services a Glowforge machine will use your knowledge and procedures to make it possible.
