Research Scientist

Redwood City
Materials Development
Full-time
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.

Help us change the world, and we will help you change yours.

We are looking for an extraordinary polymer scientist to develop novel materials for our 3D printing platform. Materials are at the core of what we do. Our materials are used for applications such as prototyping, dental, biomedical, automotive, aerospace, footwear, investment casting, and many more. You will work as part of a cohesive and high-energy team, but also direct individual projects and have freedom to execute as you see fit.

Responsibilities:

    • Validate consistency of key raw materials in resins, and help setting specs for raw materials
    • Test incoming batches of resins to validate consistency, and trouble-shoot for causes leading to variations
    • Test robustness of different resin formulations including high/low temperature stability and long term storage stability
    • Participate in formulation and scale-up of developed products
    • Print formulations to understand how printing parameters, liquid and cured properties of resin affect the final outcome of the product.

Requirements:

    • BS or MS with background in polymer, chemistry, materials science, and chemical engineering.
    • Hands on experience in formulations, and attention to details
    • Experience with UV-curing chemistry and/or polyurethane chemistry
    • Strong analytical skills with good data tracking and presentation ability
    • Safety conscious individual who actively promotes safe behavior in the department and takes responsibility for safe lab operations
