Electrical Engineer

Voxel8 is a startup out of the Lewis Research Group at Harvard University. Voxel8 is creating the world’s first 3D electronics printer capable of printing embedded electronics and other novel devices, all leveraging the group’s research over the last two decades.

As an electrical or computer engineer you’ll design and develop our gantry control and ink dispense electronics for our first 3D printer. You’ll iterate on existing control hardware to fit our needs, and write firmware to make it work together. You’ll work closely with our software, hardware, and materials team to make sure all systems function seamlessly.

Ideal candidates will be passionate about 3D printing, have used or built their own 3D printer, and are excited to see what novel 3D printed electronics devices our machines can make.
