At Glowforge, we help people bring home the future and make it their own. Our printer uses a laser to carve and engrave products from raw materials like wood, leather, acrylic – even cardboard. Take a look and see for yourself.
We build magical products to delight our customers, and we do it while taking care of each other. We hire people who are outstanding at what they do, who thrive in tight-knit teams, and who want to make things that make a difference.
Together, we've built a product we're incredibly proud of, and the reward has been incredible growth.
We work together because we believe in the power of creativity. We believe we can bring about a future where anyone can print anything.
We're a remote-first company - just let us know where you prefer to work from!
Why We Need You
The passion for Glowforge on social media is simply electric. Just one look at#glowforge and you'll see what we mean.
We've cultivated quite the community across our social media platforms, but in true Glowforge spirit, we're always looking to learn and grow - more connections, more conversations, more Glowforge enthusiasts. To achieve this, we need a maestro of content that not just attracts eyeballs, but also captivates minds, tells an enchanting story, and nudges people to engage with us so enthusiastically that their like, comment and share buttons won't know what hit them.
And guess what? We think that maestro is you.
Social media isn't just another channel for us. It's the window into the wondrous realm of owning a Glowforge; a vital way we connect with our beloved community. Without making our mark there, our mission - to build a world where anyone can print anything - remains just that, a mission. We need your help to make it a reality.
