* Communicate effectively to all customers and stakeholders involved.
* Work closely with Origin’s laboratory team on validating new resins for Origin’s platform.
* Be comfortable with 3D printing occasionally to holistically understand Origin’s product and print process.
* You will report to Origin’s Director of Materials.

What we’re looking for in candidates:
* Motivated, passionate, creative problem solver who can work collaboratively with excellent communication skills.
* Strong relationship building and interpersonal skills – you’ll be directly involved with customers, helping to manage important relationships for Origin’s platform.
* Ability to take initiative and ownership over tasks that need to get done.
* Ability to thrive in a fast-paced work environment, multi-task and manage priorities, and consistently meet deadlines.
* A strong work ethic, attention to detail, and an eagerness to help.
* MS or PhD in Materials Science, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or other related programs. Exceptional candidates with a B.S. in these disciplines and 3+ years of industry experience will be considered.

Nice to have:
* Experience in Additive Manufacturing
* Client/Customer management experience
