Quantum Engineer - Control Electronics (remote-ish)

Permanent employee, Full-time · Remote

What we do
The capabilities of current generation quantum devices are still quite underwhelming. They are slow and error-prone; and scientists spend an enormous amount of time just optimizing their setups. We are gathering the brightest minds to solve this! Join us on our journey to become the world’s leading scientific machine learning company, starting with the control of quantum technology devices. We work remotely, and meet physically once a month for planning, brainstorming and shared meals.
Why we need you
As we build the tools to help scientists better calibrate their quantum devices, we need Quantum Engineers with a deep understanding of the control layer that underpins all the useful operations ​one can perform on these devices. ​Qruise develops a very comprehensive digital twin of the ​room temperature and cryogenic control electronics used in various quantum technology platforms and provides a seamless integration with various OEM control ​electronic stacks. It is crucial that you feel comfortable in speaking (and translating between) the languages spoken by theoretical physicists and experimentalists/engineers.
Your profile
  • Strong background in developing Control Stack for Quantum Technologies (MSc/PhD with 2-3 years of experience)
  • Experience in integrating off-the-shelf Control Electronics Hardware and/or Software with physics experiments is useful
  • Experience in working in or closely with experimental labs in developing control software is preferred
  • Experience in RF and Microwave theory and measurement is an added bonus
  • You must enjoy scientific programming and building software systems
  • You must already reside or be willing to relocate near EU time-zones (CET±1)
What we need for your application
Your CV is a good start. But, what we’d really like to see is that you have a proven track record of projects and work in the relevant field. So if you can send us a link to your GitHub, recent projects or real-world examples of what you have done so far, that is what really interests us. Before a possible interview, please think about the following:
  • What is something you accomplished which you are really proud of?
  • What technological developments are you excited about?
  • What are the things that you have taught yourself?
  • What is something you would like to learn or improve in the near future?
