The Structo journey began in 2012 in a small room at National University of Singapore (NUS) where a group of engineers were attempting to build an "inkless printer"; a machine that used laser to burn black marks onto paper and thus print without using ink or toner. It worked only half the time (and caught fire the other half), so the group shifted their focus to 3D printing instead. The engineers developed the first prototype of their Mask Stereolithography (MSLA) technology to demonstrate lightning-fast print speeds and scalability, and soon thereafter secured investment and officially founded Structo.
Over the next few years, the business has grown to become a household brand in the dental and orthodontics industry with customers spanning 6 continents. With our expertise in hardware, material sciences and automation systems, we have revolutionized the field of digital dentistry.
And we’re just getting started.
Soon we'll be taking our technology and know-how to other industries that need mass customisation of products.
As a startup, Structo has succeeded without a massive war chest because the founders have been able to build a great team & culture where people are constantly achieving above average performance levels (if not really high performance levels).
How have we managed to sustain this?
Once you're on board, we trust you to give everything your best shot, learn from your mistakes and try to improve 1% every day We promote work-life flexibility, as it's hard to find balance when you love what you do!
We think you'll be joining us because you want to build great technology and be part of building a great organization. The quickest way to do both is by giving you that freedom to do both. We don't have the time or money to micromanage you, we need you to come in and own it.
While we don't micromanage, we are here to coach. We don't take a one shoe fits all approach. Everyone is a little different, and everyone needs a different amount of time, attention and feedback.
We try to make it easy for you. No convoluted message, no counterintuitive KPIs. The leaders in the organization try to keep things simple, so that everyone can stay focused on what they love doing.
No hidden agendas, no politics just bluntness. That might not be for everyone, but at least everyone will know what's happening.
We want great people to stay and grow with us, simple. So we work towards helping our people develop to ensure they keep growing.
It's hard to make progress when you're trying to do too much at the same time. At Structo we help you focus on what's important, so that you can stack up the wins and keep moving to the next awesome project to work on.
