  • Drive adoption/engagement: partner cross functionally to develop the most compelling solution to drive adoption of products; and develop strategies to drive increased customer usage.

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.

Senior Account Executive

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

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

Application Engineer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

With any rapid growth company, we have growing pains. Each team has its own goals, their own visions of success, and as such it's tough to stay aligned as one team. The Project Engineering team is working across the company on improving communication and workflow which ultimately ensures we keep the culture we've created long term.
