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.
As a Senior IC Design Engineer, the position will suit someone with expert understanding in the CMOS process and with the flexibility to apply it to creating world first quantum computing devices in silicon.
We are not looking for anyone with prior quantum experience, but curiosity and a strong desire to learn and input into a brand-new technology area are critical.
This is a rare and exciting opportunity to be an early employee at a start-up shaping the future of quantum computing. Being a small team and having a flat structure, this is a great opportunity to contribute to new developments within the field. There are vast opportunities for professional growth and to make an impact within the company.
