Driven by Artificial Intelligence, Xometry [pronounced with a /z/ ] is empowering our customers to build parts that are critical components in next-generation industries from spacecraft and electric vehicles to medical devices and robotics. Our digital marketplace and suite of cloud-based solutions are enabling the long tail of the internet to finally reach the thousands of small- and medium-sized manufacturers in the United States and around the world. Xometry is a two sided, AI enabled marketplace connecting businesses with optimal manufacturing solutions. Customers ranging from startups to Fortune 100 companies can simply go to, upload a 3D CAD file of a part they need manufactured and receive an instant-quote with the cost and time to make and ship the part. Orders can be checked out right then and there in less than 10 minutes without having to interface with any manufacturer. This technology is unprecedented in an industry where, traditionally, you would reach out and request quotes from several manufacturers taking days if not weeks to get your parts ordered. Here at Xometry, we are a leading company in On Demand Manufacturing. We are in a hyper-growth phase, with a manufacturing platform that is loved and used by customers around the world.  If you're dedicated and ambitious, Xometry is an excellent place to grow your career.
