Working at Makelab
Working at Makelab
Makelab was born out of a need to 3D print. Christina & Manny started out as Industrial Designers from Pratt, freelancing and working with clients to develop their product ideas and concepts. They found the need to 3D print a lot, and tried many methods of doing so. They bought a machine to 3D print internally and also tried outsourcing to online AM service platforms, only to realize that both methods were too slow, disconnected, unreliable, and difficult. They found a local business, 3DUniPrint. They loved it so much, Christina & Manny became their top customer in 2016. A year later, they acquired 3DUniPrint and rebranded the business to Makelab.
Ever since, Christina and Manny have made it Makelab's mission to make product development easier, faster, and overall better.
We know the importance of weaving in that human, customer-centric approach into the DNA of Makelab. Makelab is at the junction of creativity and creation. We support our customers' businesses and empower their projects. We choose to go the extra mile for our customers and really connect those dots for them.
The entire team comes from varying backgrounds, but we have a few things in common- we're all extremely hard-working, driven to deliver the vision, team-oriented, and process-driven. We like to make things repeatable, and we bond over creative problem solving at work (and dogs) (and food).
Please note, we currently do not have any open positions. But we are a fast-growing startup and are always looking for great talent. Please submit an application if you're interested and we will review when we have an open position.
