About The Role and Team
The IC Team is responsible for the design and test of the integrated circuits which operate at deep-cryogenic temperatures and interact with the qubits. This role is a unique chance to work at the bleeding edge of technology development, developing new innovative circuits to tackle the engineering challenge of implementing a large scale quantum computer in silicon. You will be a key part of a multidisciplinary team, and will be involved in all the aspects of IC design cycle from initial concept to volume production.
This is a rare and exciting opportunity to be an early employee at a start-up shaping the future of quantum computing, and in particular to form a new team within the company. There are vast opportunities for professional growth and to make an impact within the company.
As a Senior IC Layout Engineer, the position will suit a multidisciplinary profile with expertise in Analog IC Layout primarily and CAD management secondarily. No quantum experience required, but curiosity and a strong desire to learn and input into a brand-new technology area are critical.
We are one of the “Top 100 Startups worth watching” in the EE Times
, and our technology breakthroughs have been featured in The Telegraph
and the New Statesman
. Our founders are internationally renowned researchers from UCL and Oxford University who have pioneered the development of qubits and quantum computing architectures. Our chairman is the co-founder of Cadence and Synopsys, the two leading companies in the area of Electronic Design Automation. We’re backed by a team of top-tier investors including Oxford Sciences Innovations, INKEF Capital
and Octopus Ventures
, and we have so far raised over £18 million equity and grant funding.
We bring together the brightest quantum engineers, integrated circuit (IC) engineers and quantum computing theoreticians to create a unique, world-leading team, working together closely to maximise our combined expertise. Our collaborative and interdisciplinary culture is an ideal fit for anyone who thrives in a cutting-edge research and development environment focused on tackling big challenges and contributing to the development of scalable quantum computers based on silicon technology.
Our team of 30+ is based in Oxford and London: the majority of our experimental work is carried out in London and this is where we are expanding our operation, opening a new lab near Kings Cross this year.
