MakerBot’s Hiring

By on June 11th, 2010 in Event


“We are looking for a highly talented electrical engineer to head up our new electronics engineering department” is the opening line of a job description from an employment listing by MakerBot, producers of one of the most popular hobbyist 3D printers. They’re looking to expand their Brooklyn NY based operations by having someone focus on the electronics portion of MakerBot’s products. 
The job description seems fairly straightforward, barring the 3D printing angle: “This job will involve designing, developing and testing both new and existing products for the mass market”, and there are few clues about any secret developments underway in the MakerBot warrens. If you’re qualified and located in the NYC area, this could be a very interesting role. 
Best line: “We would like you to have forgotten more about electrical engineering than we could ever hope to know.”
