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.
This is a full-time role in Seattle, and we are happy to help new employees relocate to this wonderful city.
Why We Need You
One of the unusual things about the Glowforge architecture is that we moved many of the hard engineering problems from hardware to software and the software from device to the cloud. This means that our cloud service does the heavy lifting for features like alignment and autofocus, making what was once a tedious and error-prone process, fabulous and simple to use. It also makes it dead easy to diagram, draw, or doodle your invention and print it directly to wood, acrylic, fabric, leather, or paper. That software generates a tremendous amount of data that we use to create, improve, and polish new product experiences for our customers.Our company succeeds only through insight and vision. Our data is precious, but it’s worthless without you. You create the tools that allow us to see.
