Qblox is looking for an electrical engineer to help us build a control stack for an industrial-scale
quantum computer. These quantum control stacks generate the analog signals needed for the
control and readout of quantum bits. The signals are either DC and need to have extremely
low-noise, temperature drift and interference, or are in the RF domain and generated using
modern FPGAs connected to high-speed data converters. Furthermore, it is required that the
control stack is scalable and can grow to accommodate larger quantum processors.
As an electrical engineer it is your role to design, test and debug the various PCBs in the system. You will analyse measurement data using Python and need to be capable of writing low-level drivers in C to communicate with the various IC’s in the design. You will also assist in the outsourcing of the production and testing of the hardware. Furthermore, you will assist in the certification process for our products.
You are required to have at least three years of experience working in a professional R&D environment doing:
- PCB design (analog and digital)
- Low-noise and low-drift electronic design
- High-speed digital design
- Signal integrity validation
- Hardware testing, debugging and verification
At Qblox, we operate at the frontier of the quantum revolution delivering advanced technologies needed to build Quantum Computers. This field is rapidly growing and will impact society on a global level.
With a dedicated team of scientists, engineers and developers we are pushing quantum technology to support experimentalists worldwide with our scalable qubit control and readout equipment.
Since 2019, Qblox has grown into a dynamic company employing 50+ innovative, international minds, all dedicated to the company’s mission. We celebrate equality and diversity. We are growing exponentially and welcome talented individuals who share our enthusiasm to make a difference. We’re striving to build a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, cultures, perspectives, experiences, and skills. If you are to join us, you can expect:
An international, interdisciplinary team of high-skilled physicists, engineers, designers and scientists with an open working culture
A high-curiosity, high-performance and invigorating team dynamic
Flexible working hours: hybrid working options and travel allowance for commute
30 days annual leave and holiday allowance
Company-sponsored retreats and Friday lunches
Modern, open office with proximity to QuTech facilities, shared with Delft-based quantum startups
Competitive compensation and participation plan
Opportunities for international travel for conferences, partnerships and customer visits
As a spin-out of the Delft-based quantum technology institute, 'QuTech' (a collaboration between the Delft University of Technology and TNO (Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research), our relationship with QuTech and other leading labs around the world enables us to implement the latest scientific insights and take a position up front in the worldwide race towards quantum computers.
