About Lumafield: 

Founded in 2019, Lumafield has developed the world's first accessible X-Ray CT scanner for engineers. Our easy-to-use scanner and cloud-based software give engineers the ability to see their work clearly, inside and out, at an extremely affordable price.  

Engineers make million-dollar decisions every day, and they need tools that give them the greatest possible insight into their products. By offering unprecedented visibility into products, as well as AI-driven tools that highlight problems and generate quantitative data, Lumafield promises to revolutionize the way complex products are created, manufactured, and used across industries. 

We are an impact driven company obsessed with providing the best value to our customers keeping their needs at the center of our evolution. Our team today includes world-class researchers and industrial designers, PhDs, creators, founders of successful startups, and zero egos. We are backed by top venture capital funds like Kleiner Perkins, Lux Capital, DCVC, Spark Capital, and others. 

The company is headquartered in Cambridge, MA and has an office in San Francisco, CA.

About the Role:   

Do you like to nerd out about the latest generation of digital image sensors?  Do you like to build motion systems with microns of repeatability?  Do you enjoy using feedback to compensate for non-ideal systems?  If so, you'd feel at home here at Lumafield.

Our electrical engineers are able to successfully define and build complex systems that cross disciplinary boundaries, whether that's dealing with photons or accelerations or forces or gigabytes of data.  We care deeply about design and user experience, without sacrificing our strong safety culture.  We are building our dream tool, for people like us, to get answers to difficult questions quickly.  Along the way, we are building our dream team and culture as well.
