Jobs. You need one, but you don’t have one. Or maybe you have one but you hate it, which is also unfortunate since you spend so much damn time punching the clock.

MakerBot is a hot Boerum Hill based startup with a mission to bring affordable 3D printing to the masses. Now the company is looking for a Productor!
