Qblox is looking for a Head of Engineering to lead the engineering of our control stacks for quantum computers and quantum networks.
We are a deep tech scaleup company who's mission it is to accelerate our customers in the worldwide race towards building practical quantum computers and quantum networks. To build practical quantum computers and quantum networks the field faces the following challenges:
Improving the quality of quantum bits (qubits) and operations,
Scaling up the number of qubits,
Harnessing algorithms with quantum error correction and error mitigation strategies.
Crucial in overcoming these challenges is the control stack that forms the interface between the quantum world and the classical world.
Qblox builds control stacks that combine unlevelled noise and drift performance, a low-latency arbitrary control flow and scalability up to 1000s of qubits. The control stack generates the analog pulses (from DC - 18 GHz) needed for the control and readout of qubits. These analog signals are generated from 1000s of parallel channels and driven by our proprietary sequence processor technology. Our products are used by R&D teams globally to accelerate the development of operational quantum computers and quantum networks. The technology we are developing is compatible with a multitude of quantum hardware (superconducting, spin, NV-centres, trapped ions, cold atoms).
We have internal development teams to design the (RF) circuits boards, embedded software, FPGA firmware, user facing software and test setups. At the moment, these teams report directly to the CTO. Since the company is growing fast, Qblox is looking for a head of engineering to take over the day-to-day management of the engineering efforts.
As a head of engineering you will:
Lead our teams of (embedded) software, electrical, FPGA and quantum engineers (~40 FTE, and rapidly growing),
Define, implement, document, and manage engineering processes across teams to allow to scale up the company further in the coming years,
Participate in defining our company strategy and roadmap,
Manage our engineering projects end-to-end, including (human) resource and timeline planning,
Prepare and manage the engineering department’s budget,
Hire the best engineers in the world and coordinate their training to make them even better,
Report directly to the CTO,
