Special Assistant to The CEO


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.

You are going to be our ultimate multiplier. Dan is called on to do dozens of things each day. You will to be the secret to making them all happen. With you, the idea that was created on a Monday is researched by Tuesday and sketched into a draft plan by Wednesday. He can be in three cities in a single day without missing a press interview or investor demonstration. Dan appears to have a supernatural recollection of important details, even though he is actually the sort who tends to forget to bring clean socks.

You’re going to help us outmaneuver companies a dozen times our size and build Glowforge into a company that will be admired for years to come. You’ll be a pillar of the company culture, responsible for projects and initiatives from tiny to groundshaking, and someone who grows into ever greater responsibilities.
