As a Materials Print Engineer, you will continuously improve our existing FFF material set and bring new plastic and composite materials through qualification and out into the market. You will run print test suites and convince leadership that new materials are ready to launch. To do this you will use your materials know-how to look at structure-property relationships, make suggestions on changes to raw materials, and modify printing profiles. Perhaps you will end up tweaking software or changing the rheology of the filaments to get the perfect prints. You will work directly with a team of materials scientists and print engineers and contribute to a collaborative and productive work environment. This role will be focused on the plastics and composites side of our business.
What will you own?
Print & design composite material test suites, with statistically meaningful analysis
Perform experiments and use results to inform and develop improvements in materials, software, and/or hardware for better properties, robustness, and reliability
Make hypotheses and determine several ways to test them
Root cause 3D printing phenomena
Record data, summarize findings, and present results
Create easy to follow and detailed documentation
Maintain composite printers and testing devices
Comply with safety and protective equipment regulations
Important Note: Although we list out what we generally look for, we are very likely missing other attributes and skills that you have that could make you a great fit, but are not currently listed. Research has shown this especially applies to women and other marginalized groups, who tend to apply if they check 100% of every box, versus men who apply if they hit roughly 60%.
