This role you are involved in deep, hands-on technical work in a focused, collaborative startup environment. You will be responsible for establishing and improving the measurement setup for our quantum bits, with primary focus on high-fidelity readout and control of single- and two-qubit gates.  You will will also be guiding the technical direction of the research based on experimental results, with constant awareness towards company milestones. To fully shine in this senior position you have already experience in experimental quantum measurement techniques and quantum control, especially for quantum computing.

Key Responsibilities include:

  • Hands on characterization and measurement of superconductor-based qubit and quantum devices.
  • Collaborate with hardware and device fabrication teams to determine development path for a scalable superconducting quantum processor.
  • Generate new and useful ideas that enable scalable measurement of quantum devices.
  • Establishing lab best practices and protocols to ensure quality of work and the safety of all involved.


Qualifications

Basic:

  • PhD in Electrical engineering, Physics, Applied Physics or related field.
  • 2+ years of experience in measurement of superconducting qubit devices at cryogenic temperatures.
  • Understanding of advanced control electronics, including RF and microwave circuits, and FPGA based systems.


Desired:

  • Excellent communication (English, verbal and written) and interpersonal skills.
  • Keen experimental insight with an ability to devise and focus on key experiments.
  • Experienced in programming languages like Python, Mathematica and MATLAB.
  • Highly motivated, and excited by self-directed, hands-on work.
  • Ability to be flexible and adapt to new situations in a rapidly changing research environment.
  • Strong teamwork and coaching skills.

We are looking for a highly-motivated candidate with independent problem-solving skills and natural capacity to learn and master complex systems and unforeseen practical challenges. You will complement our scalable electronics team with the goal of developing high bandwidth highly parallel synchronous microwave control electronics which will form the basis for an interface between classical computer and our cryogenic quantum computing infrastructure.

As an FPGA designer, you focus on interfacing ultra-high-speed DACs. The work is focused on developing hardware and software for real-time creation and analysis of complex high bandwidth electrical signals.

Key Responsibilities include:

  • Design of high-speed digital-to-analog converters.
  • Hardware test and debug.

 

Qualifications

Basic:

  • Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Microwave Engineering, Physics, Applied Physics or related field.
  • Possess general FPGA development skills with Xilinx Vivado and Intel Quartus Prime.
  • Ability to code in Verilog as the hardware description language.
  • Good understanding of JESD204B SerDes interfaces.
  • Able to implement soft microprocessors.
  • Understand real-time deterministic synchronous signal processing and conditioning.

 

Desired:

  • PhD in Electrical Engineering, Microwave Engineering, Physics, Applied Physics or related field.
  • Experience in designing PCBs with large FPGA chips and high speed SerDes lanes.
  • Excellent understanding of cryogenic measurement techniques and limitations.
  • Ability to tackle problems associated with scale-up of electronics.
  • Highly motivated, and excited by self-directed, hands-on work.
  • Ability to be flexible and adapt to new situations in a rapidly changing research environment.
  • Strong teamwork and coaching skills.
  • Excellent communication (English, verbal and written) and interpersonal skills.

 

If you have experience in designing PCBs which house large FPGA chips and high speed serdes lanes, we have priority interest in you. In addition, we appreciate experience in building libraries, applications and interfaces for transparent user experience as well as hands-on skills in C, MATLAB, python and assembly languages.
