It's dps is abysmal, so I was guessing it must have something to do with it's group synergy.

Its personal DPS is higher than BRD and DNC, though.
As for support, they have Tactician and the usual role skills from the Physical Ranged DPS' role.

Is that enough to justify being below all other jobs? Tactician doesn't add rDPS, nor do any of the Traits afaik. It's personal DPS is lower than a few of other jobs that offer more rDPS and personal DPS, like Summoner, Monk, and Ninja. The latter two are melee dps, and I suppose they are supposed to be more rewarding, but Machinist really only brings DPS to a group, so it should be on closer footing I would assume.

Machinist is only competing against Dancer and Bard. Of the three Bard is the only one falling behind.

Being top of the bottom doesn't make it good.

Is that because jobs only matter between their own groupings? So because all 3 Physical Ranged DPS are bottom of the dps, it's fine because it's still the higher damage of the three of them?

None. But it’s relaxing to just do your rotation and avoid AOE. It’s brain dead.
Depression and anxiety are not a lifestyle. You don't have to suffer. Get professional help. I did, and it saved my life.
