Why Software is Important To Us:

Fast Radius is fundamentally a data driven organization. From how we print our parts to how we interact with our clients, we believe that everything we do can be done better if we understand our processes and parts better. In order to achieve that goal we can’t use off the shelf order and part management systems. We know they end up creating data silos and slow you down in the long run. In order to build the manufacturing network of the future we need a custom software platform designed specifically for our company. We need a platform that integrates our sales process with our order tracking processes and finally with our plant so that we can have a complete real time understanding of how our business operates and how each independent process affects the parts we produce. We can’t do that without building our own tools.

    • Interest in TDD and specific experiences using a test heavy approach to solve problems and create solutions
    • Focus on building solutions utilizing an agile approach: close relationships with people outside of our dev team, communicating and digesting real time feedback, and working smart to build story cards on daily basis
