Other Machine Co. is a Berkeley-based hardware & software startup. We care about widespread public access to digital design and desktop manufacturing tools. We believe that hardware should be robust, software experiences should be seamless, and service is the foundation for meaningful customer relationships.
Your days will be filled with all things manufacturing and quality control. We do final assembly in-house with the highest-quality components sourced from all around the world. We successfully launched our first product in 2013, and we are now scaling production. As a result, we are thrilled to add another member to our hardware team.
You should have an extreme attention to detail and be incredibly organized. You should be excited about metrology and tolerances, testing protocols, and working in partnership with our component manufacturers. You will understand the manufacturing of the entire machine through the full assembly process from frame to wiring to QC testing. You will measure and test each component of our machine for quality and carefully document performance for each metric.
This is a full-time position, in Berkeley, CA. Compensation is $20-30/hr, commensurate with experience, plus benefits.
The mission of Other Machine Co. is to create an ecosystem of tools and gather a community of people who are passionate about making their ideas a reality. Our products are the premier solution for engineers and designers who want to quickly manufacture prototypes, parts, and products in standard materials like aluminum and performance plastics. We make it possible for these people to fabricate on their desktop, without extensive training, for a fraction of the cost and time of outsourcing.
We do what we do because we believe that the future of manufacturing is small-batch, ultra-customized, and on-demand. When we think about the future, we see manufacturing in a fully-distributed model with large and small companies manufacturing custom products locally and on demand. Our products put high-precision manufacturing capabilities in the hands of many people for the first time. We enable these people, saving them time and money, and we open doors for them in terms of employment mobility and pathways to modern technical relevance through hands-on education. If this mission resonates with you, reach out and join our team.
