Mechanical Engineer [CNC/Injection Molding] at 3D Hubs
Chicago, IL, US
3D Hubs makes high-quality manufacturing methods accessible to Engineers all over the world with cutting edge software. Following our recent announcement of $18m funding we intend to grow our company and continue driving the manufacturing industry online. This is effectively the Industrial Revolution of the 21st Century. Want to be a part of it?
We believe in Automation. 93% of all parts ordered on our platform are evaluated, priced and processed for production without any human interaction. The 7% that are not must be inspected, dissected and tested, and eventually either accepted or rejected. That's the primary responsibility of our [mostly human] Mechanical Engineering Team, and we are looking for a new Engineer to join that team in Amsterdam. If you have experience sourcing pricing and production times involving manufacturing processes like CNC & IM, we want you!
We want to ensure that our Engineer customers are getting the best possible experience when ordering their parts. And as a secondary function, the Mechanical Engineering Team also works closely with our Sales & Supply Chain teams to offer support to customers on all things relating to the design and production of their parts. This role is the perfect blend of commercial Engineering Support that allows you to accelerate your manufacturing knowledge across a variety of different industries (including aerospace and automotive) and work with a range of different manufacturing technologies like 3D printing, CNC and injection molding.

What you'll do:

    • Support our Clients & our Sales Team, advising them on the manufacturability and technical aspects of orders;
    • Source pricing and lead times for orders that are not auto-quoted by 3D Hubs pricing algorithm [the 7%];
    • Deep dive into complex projects and analyse the Root Cause of each anomalous part;
    • Find new inventive ways to bring projects from prototyping stages to 'end-parts' production;
    • Produce documentation relating to manufacturing standards, quality control and certification;

What it takes:

    • A degree in Mechanical, Industrial or Design engineering;
    • 3-5 years of industry experience; and some experience working in a manufacturing environment;
    • A sound understanding of manufacturing materials and processes, particularly CNC machining and injection molding;
    • Experience using CAD (Fusion 360 preferred) and the ability to interpret complex technical engineering drawings;
    • Located in Chicago or have the desire to move to Chicago.

Why people like working @ 3D Hubs:

    • Working with and learning from the founders of a mature startup in growth mode
    • Everyone's an innovator and new creative ideas are embraced every day
