Velo3D is a well-funded advanced technology company, backed by top VC firms, with the intent to completely disrupt the metal additive manufacturing industry.  We build the impossible, and we are looking for talented individuals to help us accomplish our goals.

As an industry, metal additive manufacturing (AM) is experiencing growth rates approaching 90%, and is expected to be worth over $10 billion dollars by 2020.  This is not consumer-grade 3D-printing.  The metal additive revolution relies on the development of algorithms and software in the fields of computational geometry, machine vision, modeling, control and graphics as well as HW encompassing lasers, optics, metrology and automation.

We are looking for self-starters that enjoy working in a highly dynamic startup environment. You will enjoy small company atmosphere and excellent benefits including healthcare coverage, 401(K) matching, free catered lunches, and other perks befitting a dynamic company.

As the Software Engineering Manager you will be working on a highly sophisticated 3D printing on metals system and you will lead a development team focused on design, development and integration of software control for advanced highly sophisticated 3D metal printers.

The team is looking for a curious self-starter who enjoys working in a highly dynamic startup environment and who is thrilled by an opportunity to solve new complex technological problems that were never solved before.
