As a Manager, you will be a key driver in building features and platform stability into Markforged’s cloud-based 3D printing solution. You will be responsible for entire feature sets and the people delivering them: decomposition of requirements, hands-on implementation, cross-team coordination, and the career arc of a team of strong engineers. You will have a growth mindset, accelerating engineers’ career progression and hiring more team members.
This is a player/coach role. Markforged strongly values individuals who use, understand, and love our product, and want to see their efforts actively being used by their customers. The ideal candidate will have a proven track record of hands-on experience for managing and maturing teams, and with a “ship often” mindset.
What will you own?
- Manage and grow a team of 3-7 experienced engineers responsible for building full feature sets
- Drive technical decisions and be accountable for the delivery of solutions on initiatives they own
- Work with engineers across the company to build new features at large scale
- Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes
- Plan for the growth of Markforged's infrastructure
