An Insider's view of Shapeways

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Shapeways cares about its employee's work/life balance by supporting flexible working hours, parental leave, and a genuine attitude of camaraderie and working together. I am thankful for the friendly environment and truly feel that our leadership team cares about the staff and how they're doing, both professionally and personally.

Leon Tsivin

Director, Product Management

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Every 3D model uploaded to Shapeways is unique: it's intended purpose, it's geometry, it's the owner. Whereas other industries may be able to take a 'one-size-fits-all customers' approach to solving problems, we are often faced with the challenge of making a solution work for a near infinite amount of possibilities.

Carolyn Dempsey

Director, Product Management

What does career growth look like on your team?

We introduced an Engineering Career Ladder to our team; we outlined all of our available roles and their respective responsibilities. That document, along with a related individualized Career Development Plan, serves as the basis for directing our engineers' career growth. Still, it's up to each engineer to drive their own career growth forward.

Reginald Mullin

Director, Engineering

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We strive to create a culture that empowers our team at all levels. We have an ambitious vision for the company, a clear strategy on how we can accomplish that, and goals that connect everyone to the same purpose. This starts by building and developing the team, communicating, being transparent, and celebrating our successes and failures.

Greg Kress

CEO

What are some social events your company does?

Our social events are definitely a nice wide range, ranging from a quick Mardi Gras happy hour inside our actual office to a holiday party at a nice rooftop lounge. Additionally, we have had team-specific outings that have included going to an arcade, sports bar, and a karaoke bar.
