Problem-solving, together with her team, is both the key motivation as well as the challenge for Paula Roman. This Project Engineer at Materialise Manufacturing is passionate about 3D printing and has a resolute can-do attitude towards her job, two great ingredients for this role.
Internal mobility is highly encouraged at Materialise. We took a look at the stories of four employees’ career paths to discover how they sought new opportunities, their advice for colleagues looking to do the same, and internal mobility resources provided by HR.
Jorn was a Biomedical Engineering graduate who decided to take part in the Future Innovators Day to get a sneak peek into jobs and life at Materialise. A few months later, he walked through the door of Materialise again to start work as a Clinical Engineer.
What’s it like to be one of our Medical Application Engineers? In fact, what does that even mean? Materialise Medical spearheads our innovations in Medical 3D Printing, which include software that allows its users to visualize the anatomy of their patients in 3D, create customized 3D-printed patient guides – and even customized 3D-printed titanium implants! Our Medical Application Engineers come in many shapes and forms, and no two days look the same for them. We took a closer look at a normal day for Xavier Mottart, an application engineer for hip and shoulder implants and oncology cases, and Ines Da Silva, team leader of the medical sales application engineering team.
Not everything at Materialise Software is about writing code. A large part of the Software department is devoted to shaping the product and determining which features should be included, based on the feedback from the customers and the market. In this way, our software can keep making the lives of our customers easier, more cost-effective and more efficient. We interviewed two software application engineers to get an in-depth look at what the job is really like. Meet Olga Iatsenko, product application engineer for Materialise 3-matic, and Maarten Brocatus, product application engineer for Materialise e-Stage.
Beginning this year, we held a co-creation exercise where our people managers were invited to work out the focus of their development among the six leadership competencies. Team activation was one of the needs that the group identified, and we chose a beautiful day in April to have our first People Manager Team Building.
Happy 5th Anniversary i.materialise! A big thank you goes out to all designers, makers, inventors, students, partners, press, and so many more who have supported us along the way. How cheesy it may sound, we really couldn’t have done this without you. So, here's a story from the beginning - an inspiring story by our CEO, Fried Vancraen of “Why i.materialise was born”.
