About MFG and Shapeways

MFG, the world’s largest custom manufacturing marketplace, is looking for an experienced sales account executive to join its expanding team!

We are an online marketplace that makes it easy for buyers of custom parts to easily discover custom manufacturers. Our marketplace provides excellent value to our buyers by helping them save time and money, and even more value to our customers, the manufacturers, by helping them efficiently and economically find new customers. With a powerful differentiator being the ability to efficiently post and respond to active RFQs (request for quote) by the buyer on our platform, we have easily served over 9,000 buyers and suppliers. We exist to build a bridge between buyers and manufacturers to make the discovery of each other, more efficient and beneficial to all parties

In April of 2022, MFG was acquired by Shapeways, Inc (NYSE: SHPW). Shapeways is a leader in the large and fast-growing digital manufacturing industry combining high-quality, flexible on-demand manufacturing powered by purpose-built proprietary software which enables customers to rapidly transform digital designs into physical products, globally. Shapeways acquired MFG to broaden its supply chain network in traditional manufacturing and add an important complementary element to its software solution.
