Desktop Metal is reinventing the way design and manufacturing teams produce metal parts - from prototyping through mass production. Our team is built around the disciplines of materials science, hardware and software engineering, and design. We have raised $97 million in equity funding with investment from technology leaders including Google, BMW, Lowe’s, and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. Located just outside of Boston we are assembling a team of experts and are looking to hire curious and driven engineers, scientists, and designers.
Desktop Metal was started to address a problem—how to make metal 3D printing accessible for engineering teams. In 2013, CEO Ric Fulop began collaborating with world-leading experts in materials science, engineering, and 3D printing. Their work together over the course of two years drew multiple independent inventions together to form the basis for Desktop Metal’s technology:
1988 - “3D Printing” gets its name and Binder Jetting is invented by Ely Sachs (Co-founder) and colleagues at MIT
1997 - Metallurgy experts Animesh Bose (VP, R&D) and Randall German publish definitive book on Metal Injection Molding
2000 - Single-Pass Inkjet Technology is invented by Paul Hoisington (Chief Scientist for Inkjet Systems) and colleagues
2006 - 2011 - Major nanocrystalline and amorphous metals advances are made by Chris Schuh (Co-founder) at MIT
2015 - Desktop Metal is founded
