Tech Support Specialist - Mechanical

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.
If you haven’t already, check out our video on While you’re there, you’ll notice something amazing: Glowforge is the largest crowdfunding campaign in history. There is 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.

Why we need you

Glowforge isn’t just a beautiful piece of hardware, it’s a living growing platform that includes hardware, cloud based software, a catalog of designs and a community of talented makers exploring the limits of what they can do with their Glowforge printer.
We want our customers to be delighted with their Glowforge but sometimes they hit a snag and need a little help. You’re one of the keys to their success, connecting the dots from an unexpected print experience to the piece of hardware that would cause their problem whether it’s a loose belt, damaged wheel or something else entirely. You’ll clear the roadblocks and help them navigate the system so our customers can get back to realizing their vision and making their creations. When our customers hit a snag you’ll be the difference between them walking away frustrated or coming away informed and excited to use their Glowforge for years to come.
