Print a Thing is a marketplace for 3D printing services. It connects people who have underutilized 3D printers with those who need custom objects fabricated. In doing so, it allows those with 3D printers to make money, while offering immensely powerful 3D printing services at the lowest cost.
Print a Thing has a working massively-parallel distributed manufacturing platform up and working. With this platform, we can provide quality 3D printing services at ⅓ the cost of our most popular competitor, and will soon be offering 1/14th the turn-around time. Such a combination of low cost and high value positions us to be a dominant player in the 3d printing space.
We are in the midst of expanding our offering and are in need of an experienced and self-directed Symfony developer who can help add strategic new features to our site. Tasks include giving and receiving peer feedback through code reviews and debating about Yoda conditionals. Applicants will need to adhere to strong coding principles while at the same time being pragmatic.
The profits of so many big companies go to just a few fat cats at the top. Not with Print a Thing, LLC. We believe that people should be allowed to reap what they sow, and have built the company around this idea. Every partner contributing to Print a Thing is offered a percentage of all company profits, proportional to how much time they have invested in the company up to that point. Even the CEO is paid according to this formula and takes no additional compensation for himself. This way, we all can enjoy the process and share the rewards equitably.
