About Us

At AON3D, we're more than just an industrial 3D printer manufacturer. We’re a team of the brightest, hardest working minds out there. By hiring and training our team this way, we’ve made our product better, we’ve made our journey together better, and we’ve achieved our fundraising and roadmap milestones. We’re resilient, we learn something from every single experience, and we can make orange juice out of lemons (not just your basic lemonade). 

We believe that by equipping our team with the autonomy and tools that they need to do their best work, we can empower the best growth and creativity. It’s one of our core values.

Our recent success has exceeded our wildest dreams (work-related, at least). As such, we need to hire new talented experts and generalists to join our team. 

We are looking for folks who:

Thrive in smaller, fast-paced environments. 

Are mission-focused and entrepreneurial minded.

Believe in constantly evolving and changing.

Are hard-working pioneers of the tech world, through one way or another.

Give as much as they take.

About this role:

As a Mechanical Engineer at AON3D, you'll be responsible for all aspects of mechanical design, including development, prototyping, and validation as well as continued maintenance and evolution of the mechanical, thermal, and linear motion systems used in 3D printer operation. Since we're a small team, the position offers plenty of opportunity to make significant changes that will help steer the product and deliver high impact both externally for our users and internally. 

What we’re looking for in our next teammate:

  • At least 3 years of professional experience (post university) designing, planning, prototyping and validating mechanical systems.
  • Familiarity with product certification and compliance standards (e.g., CE, ETL, TUV, CSA, UL).
  • The ability to use common inspection equipment, tools, and gauges to assess quality and viability of product.
  • Proficiency and comfort with SolidWorks.
  • Someone who will take the lead on projects to drive innovation.

What to expect after you submit your application: 

We do our best to review and action all applications within 5 business days of receipt. Although we’d love to be able to speak with everyone that applies, due to the volume of applicants we receive and time constraints, only those selected to move forward will receive a follow-up.
