An Insider's view of Fast Radius

What are some social events your company does?

I believe it’s important to build a strong community at our fast-growing company. There always seems to be something fun going on. Whether it's company-sponsored events like our holiday parties & potlucks or more casual get-togethers after work such as happy hours & sports leagues. These events have helped me get to know people in all divisions.

Kyle Tabatt

Senior Account Executive

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Fast Radius has a strong culture of collaboration. Even the physical layout of the office supports that. The design engineers are next to the manufacturing engineers and the factory so it is easy for us to get feedback and brainstorm in real-time as parts are getting produced.

Izzy de la Guardia

What does career growth look like on your team?

Growth be can twofold: Growth on a functional level - finding new ways to improve customers' experience with Fast Radius. On an individual level, growth is the expansion of an individual's depth and breadth of skills and experience. As we continue to innovate as a function, new opportunities continue for team members to learn, contribute, and lead.
