The founding values
Ultimaker is built on

Confident & reliable

Ultimaker is your confident expert. We’re never arrogant and always passionate. We know what we’re talking about and we eagerly step forward to explain founding-value something. You know you can count on us.

Open & Professional

Ultimaker has a very open mindset. We love sharing our knowledge to explore and push towards new boundaries together. It’s all about exploring and making sure that we can make the best products possible.

Energetic & playful

When you get to know us you immediately feel our energy. We see the world as our playground and we want to jump in and explore. We’re a great believer in giving it a go, to make mistakes and learn from them.

Curious & pioneering

We’re always looking ahead of the curve. We do this by seeing the bigger picture and making the tools we need right now. We’re the type who’d like to experiment with a self-driving car and explain founding-value how it works.

Honest & helpful

When somebody needs help, Ultimaker will be the first one to lend a helping hand. We use normal words, we’re patient and we always try to ensure that the other person learns something from it too.

Informal & Friendly

Ultimaker doesn’t like formalities. Life should be easy and direct. So we dress casual smart and in our heart we always prefer the workbench over the boardroom. Who doesn’t?
