Machine Learning Engineer

Voodoo Manufacturing is building a digital factory to make manufacturing as fast, affordable, and scalable as software. Our Brooklyn-based factory of 200+ 3D printers can make thousands of plastic parts and products in astonishingly short periods of time. We are making manufacturing more accessible by helping companies and individuals bridge the gap between prototyping and high-volume production. Our customers include Intel, Universal Studios, SyFy Channel, Autodesk, Viacom, Mattel, and many more. We are well-funded by top-notch investors including Y Combinator (W17 batch), General Catalyst, and KPCB Edge, and are focused on building an elite team as we scale the company over the coming years.

We are looking for an ambitious Machine Learning Engineer to start using our growing collection of 3D meshes to automate manual factory tasks. In this role, you will start with no existing machine learning infrastructure, and will be responsible for designing, implementing, and maintaining a model that maps 3D meshes to a 3D rotation vector. Infrastructure and feature engineering for this problem should translate well to future models. You will be the first machine learning expert at the company, and as such, you will work directly with the CTO to continue to identify opportunities and implement systems to move our factory towards complete automation.

The ideal candidate will be someone who is motivated, understands the resource limits of a start-up, and can drive entire projects from start to finish.


  • Designing and building an infrastructure for evaluating machine learning models
  • Engineering a suitable feature set for building solutions to a number of different processes based on 3D data
  • Implementing and improving machine learning models that transform 3D data into real manufacturing solutions


  • Masters or higher in Math/Physics/CS
  • 3+ years of professional experience building production-grade machine learning models
  • Experience applying Deep Learning techniques to a 3D data set (including 3D CNNs)
  • Experience using autoencoders to reduce input dimensionality
  • Curiosity, intellectual flexibility, and a desire to learn and grow
  • Current authorization to work in the United States on a full-time basis

Bonus Points

  • You have experience with computational geometry or 3D triangulated meshes
  • You are familiar with 3D printing
