Application Engineer

Company Description:
Impossible Objects invented a completely new and revolutionary method of 3D printing.  Rather than making incremental improvements to already existing processes, we completely reimagined 3D printing.  Our composite based additive manufacturing process (CBAM) has faster speeds, better materials, better dimensional accuracy, and a broader range of material possibilities than other 3D printing processes.  We print composite parts with our process utilizing high performance materials such as carbon fiber. Our goal is to change the way things are made. 

Because of our rapid growth, we are looking to expand our team with a critical Application Engineer position. We are problem solvers and have assembled a team that is inventing the future.

Position Overview:

As an Application Engineer your primary responsibility is to work with our customers to solve their problems using our revolutionary technology.  The goal of the Application Engineer is to learn the CBAM end-to-end process, create innovative tool and part designs, operate CBAM equipment and related equipment, perform functional tests, evaluate and bring forward new CBAM applications for our customers.


  • Work to solve customer problems.
