Computational Geometry - Software Engineer

Redwood City
Engineering -- Software
Working at the intersection of hardware, software, and molecular science, we are committed to delivering on the promise of 3D printing, enabling commercial customers to go beyond basic prototyping to 3D manufacturing.

Our company is built on the idea that when diverse fields of study come together, we are able to solve challenging problems. We have grand dreams to build technology that will influence industries around the world. You will be joining a diverse team with a dynamic culture, where team success is as important as celebrating individual contributions.

Carbon is looking to hire a strong software engineer with an even stronger background in graphics and computational geometry to help Carbon design and implement software to design and process futuristic parts -- like the midsole jointly developed by Carbon and adidas -- that can't be manufactured any other way.


    • Building and shipping significant software components.
    • Experience with Linux and AWS.
    • Exposure to tools like FENICS, PETSc.
    • Surface and volume mesh generation, analysis, and adaptation.

Our ideal candidate will have proven expertise in one or more of the following areas:

    • Coding software modules for surface and volume mesh generation, analysis, and adaptation (tetrahedral - hexahedral mesh generation for surfaces with kinks, corners).
    • Conceptual understanding of surface and volume parameterizations.
    • Has developed/coded algorithms related to surface and volume discretization, mesh repair, local re meshing/ refinement on the volume and surface discretization.


    • MS/PhD in computer science, computational geometry, mathematics or related field.
    • Ability to build computational geometry based software modules from scratch.
    • 3+ years experience

Nice to have:

    • Building and shipping significant software components/Proficiency in C++.
    • Experience with Linux and AWS.
    • Exposure to tools like CGAL, libigl, Gmsh.
