About Fictiv (www.fictiv.com)

We offer engineers and designers a faster way to prototype and manufacture hardware.

We’re building a distributed manufacturing system that enables faster, more efficient production of physical parts. Unlike traditional vendors, we don’t own machines. Instead, we find, vet, and integrate idle machines into our network. As a result, we’re able to cut lead times by 50% versus traditional solutions, while putting unused capacity to use.

We’re actively seeking potential teammates who can bring diverse perspectives and experience to our culture and company. We believe inclusion is the best way to create a strong, empathetic team.

We encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups, including but not limited to women, members of the LGBTQ community, people of color, people with disabilities, and veterans.
