Software Quality Automation Engineer


The Future of Manufacturing

We are the strongest team in an industry where software has been under-appreciated for far too long. Mechanical engineering tools are stuck in the 90s and iteration time is measured in days (sometimes weeks) rather than hours. Markforged has proven to the world that same day hardware development is not only possible but accessible today. Help us fulfill the promise of 3D printing and bring metal-strength manufacturing to the masses.

As our first Software QA Automation Engineer you will work with the rest of the software engineering team to guarantee that our software quality is top notch and that our testing infrastructure enables rapid development and deployment while eliminating the probability of bugs. We have a unique problem to solve: we deploy software across a wide range of hardware devices and environments that manufacture arbitrary parts out of an array of materials and need to guarantee 100% uptime and industry leading part quality. Our software and printers work together to enable some of the world's foremost leaders in manufacturing to solve problems in hours instead of weeks.

To succeed here, you need to be a quick learner and have a passion for software engineering, test automation and exploratory testing. You don't need prior experience with 3D printing or our software stack; you can pick up those skills on the job.
