Summer Intern Program Offers College Students Positions in Engineering, Sales, Marketing and More

BROOKLYN, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MakerBot, a global leader in the desktop 3D printing industry, is now taking applications for its 2015 MakerBot Summer Intern Program. Since the company's founding just six years ago, MakerBot has helped define the desktop 3D printing category and has grown from just three employees in 2009 to more than 600 employees today. MakerBot is offering opportunities this summer for passionate, driven, talented college students to gain valuable work experience in the exciting and challenging environment of one of New York's fastest-growing tech companies. Internship positions include engineering, manufacturing, production, customer support, sales, marketing, public relations, software and business development. Undergraduate and graduate students interested in applying for a summer internship position at MakerBot should visit makerbot.com/careers.

MakerBot internships are paid positions. As part of the internship experience, participants will attend special lectures and participate in programs on 3D printing within their area of expertise, as well as interact with senior leadership. The program begins with an orientation on June 15, 2015, and concludes on August 14, 2015. Previous MakerBot interns have gone on to work at other top technology companies, as well as come back to work at MakerBot.

"MakerBot has had a robust internship program since finding and mentoring young talent is an integral part of our company culture," said Jenny Lawton, CEO of MakerBot. "At MakerBot, interns aren't just observers; they get to work on real projects and gain valuable experience that we believe will help them kick-start their careers. We see 3D printing as a tool that is necessary to prepare students for the jobs of tomorrow, and our interns get the unique opportunity to experience and learn about the fast-growing 3D printing market firsthand."

MakerBot is a leader in the desktop 3D printing industry and was founded in 2009 as one of the first companies to bring professional-quality 3D printing to a broad base of users. 3D printing has been around for close to 30 years, but up until 2009, the industry typically offered large mainframe-sized 3D printers that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. MakerBot changed that equation by introducing desktop 3D printers that are affordable and accessible. MakerBot now has one of the largest installed bases and market shares of the desktop 3D printing industry, with more than 80,000 MakerBot Desktop 3D Printers in the world and a robust MakerBot 3D Ecosystem that combines hardware, software, apps, materials, training, support, consulting, retail stores and partnerships in order to make 3D printing easy and accessible for everyone.
