Are you an organized tinkerer interested in how everyday objects are made? Have you been excited about what 3D printing could mean for manufacturing, and the future of personal production? We're looking for a sharp, innovative doer to delve into the cutting edge of 3D printing and help create solutions to problems that have yet to be solved. If you're up for the challenge, the role of Production Specialist might be for you. Shapeways is a fast-growing global start-up with the goal of making 3D printing more accessible and affordable. Everything we make is a custom product, tailored to the customer's wishes. Want to bring a smile to a person's face? You'll be the one making sure every customer order is printed to perfection.

  • Operate our state of the art 3D printers
  • Manage daily production runs
  • Post-process 3D printed products
  • Identify and sort cleaned products
  • Pack and ship our customers' orders
  • You'll work with the team to ensure that all products are produced and packed with the highest quality and are shipped on time.

Each day, you will be the one who puts a smile on our customers' faces when they receive their creations in the mail. Initially, you will report to the Director of Industrial Engineering.


We are especially interested if you want to join a successful team and:

  • Have work experience at a world-class manufacturing facility
  • Are practical, hands on, and have an engineer's mindset
  • Have a can do attitude
  • Enjoy working with tools and systems to get the job done
