Senior Frontend (UI/UX) Engineer (E-commerce)

Remote - Full-Time

Apply to this Job

At Glowforge, we help people bring home the future and make it their own. Our printer uses a laser to carve and engrave products from raw materials like wood, leather, acrylic – even cardboard. Take a look and see for yourself.

We build magical products to delight our customers, and we do it while taking care of each other. We hire people who are outstanding at what they do, who thrive in tight-knit teams, and who want to make things that make a difference.

Together, we've built a product we're incredibly proud of, and the reward has been incredible growth. We work together because we believe in the power of creativity. We believe we can bring about a future where anyone can print anything.

We'd love to have you join us.

We're a remote-first company - just let us know where you prefer to work from!

Why we need you

We want everyone to experience the magic of printing things on a Glowforge. Our mission means making our products more affordable, easy to purchase, and appealing to everyone around the world.

You are the one who makes that happen!

Every Glowforge that finds a new home starts with a customer who decides to purchase through Glowforge.com and our online store. Every design, every piece of materials, every print depends on one critical connection: a new customer connecting with a new opportunity through the experience you build.
