Hiring: Intermediate UI Engineer
Company: Metafold 3D
Location: We are headquartered in Toronto and preference will be given to candidates in the Eastern time zone. We are a remote-first work environment, but will soon be opening a Toronto office for hybrid work possibilities.


Metafold 3D is building a new frontier of design software for industrial 3D printing applications in clean tech, medical devices, energy management and beyond. We support our users to develop game changing innovations with ultra-high geometric complexity.

We are seeking an experienced web developer who is passionate about building compelling and fast web applications that scale. This role creates a bridge between Metafold’s mathematics-heavy backend and our users: engineers creating vanguard technologies using 3D printing.

About Metafold 3D

Metafold 3D is a Toronto-based company creating cloud-native design software for industrial 3D printing. Increasingly engineers are looking to the design freedoms of 3D printing to solve pressing challenges across a range of industries: for example in carbon capture, environmental filtration, heat exchange, and orthopedic implants. However, developments in 3D printing hardware have outpaced the development of 3D printing design software, leading to frustrating and inefficient workflows. Metafold aims to change that by making it easy to work with highly complex geometry for 3D printing.

Metafold is an early stage startup, and our software Lightcycle is currently available in beta. You will have the opportunity to make your mark on our technology and our company, and we are seeking a candidate who is passionate about contributing to build both our product and our team culture.

  • Build a web application using bleeding edge technologies
  • Work closely with a team of mathematicians, developers & engineers
  • Communicate and document technical and architectural decisions

We offer:

  • Be a professional front end developer (TypeScript, SASS, React)
  • Be experienced with Next.js and Vercel deployment
  • Have successfully shipped at least one commercial product
  • Be up to date on bleeding edge web app development
  • Have a minimum of 3 years experience
