Qblox is looking for a production and test engineer to help us deliver control stacks for quantum computers. These quantum control stacks generate the analog signals needed for the control and readout of quantum bits. The signals have frequencies spanning the range from DC to the microwave regime (~20 GHz) and need to have extremely low noise, temperature drift and interference. To reach these analog properties as well as stringent timing criteria in quantum computing, signals are generated using high-end 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 a production and test engineer, it is your role to help assemble the systems and improve the processes around them. You will test the quality of the produced systems and help with the automation of these tests. This will require building test setups and writing test scripts to generate and analyse the results. You will be in control of installing and updating the latest software on the devices and help build a framework to automate this. Once good assembly and documentation are in place, you will help with outsourcing the production with one of our partners. Finally, you will investigate and repair RMA’s and come up with suggestions to improve the overall quality of our products based on this.
