Job Purpose
As Product Engineer at VulcanForms, Burlington, MA, you will perform the critical function of technical point-of-contact for our customers.  By leveraging the expertise of materials scientists, materials processing experts and LPBF manufacturing engineers you will direct the entire production process of the parts you own.

The role has significant impact on our relationship with customers and, as a technical leader, you will be assessed based on your abilities to transition customer print files into part demonstrators capable of meeting first article inspection requirements. You will establish part success criteria including print layouts, support strategies, powder evacuation methods, production risks and abatements.   To facilitate part production, you will interact with suppliers, internal and external laboratory experts, manufacturing engineers, business leaders, machinists, and technicians.  Strategic decisions that define production schedules will be made based on your recommendations.  The ideal candidate will be one that engages fully in the entire supply chain for the parts they own.

Applicants that demonstrate experience working closely with customers on technically complex products are highly sought.  Those with a background designing additively manufactured parts, preferably for medical, defense or aircraft engine applications are also of extreme interest and encouraged to apply.
