Careers at Toolpath

Principal Product Manager


Toolpath is building autonomous software to accelerate CNC machining using AI-powered machining strategies and deep geometric part comprehension. Our platform will help manufacturers quote parts faster, identify design issues, and automatically program a CNC milling machine directly from the model of a part.

We believe that investing in manufacturing automation is critical to protecting economic independence, securing supply chains, and defending the interests of the United States and its allies. Our platform will be a catalyst for innovation by lowering the cost of prototyping, accelerating product R&D, and enabling efficient rapid production.

We've raised $7M in seed funding to pursue this mission.
