Would you like to join a fast-growing international startup and shape the future of how products are designed, prototyped and manufactured?
Wikifactory is the world’s first social platform for collaborative product development which enables teams to design together, prototype faster, and manufacture smarter. Inspired by the workflows of agile and open source software development, we are building the tools to accelerate the development of (physical) products. Our community includes designers, engineers, makers, technologists, teachers, students and other creative problem solvers. Covering industries, including robotics and drones, electric vehicles, 3d printers, biotech, agri-tech, and smart furniture, our community spread across 130 countries and has published over 1000 open source hardware design projects on the platform.
Headquartered in Hong Kong with offices in Madrid and Shenzhen, Wikifactory is on a mission to connect the productive capacity of smart manufacturing with the creative potential of people through open standards and intuitive interfaces - an "Internet of Production".

The products we use every day are ever more ingenious and complex. Yet today's product developers rely on decades old collaboration tools which are no longer fit for purpose. At Wikifactory we are building the tools to help people develop better products together.
We're a small international team with a culture of openness, experimentation, and ambitious pragmatism. We're always looking for opportunities to hire people who are better than us at what they do. We're eager learners who like to keep an attitude of intellectual humility.
If you're excited about building the tools to empower the next generation of product developers, you'll fit right in. Come join us and help build a company accelerating the next industrial revolution!
