Engineering – Nanofab /
CDI /
On-site
Alice&Bob is developing the first universal, fault-tolerant quantum computer to solve the world’s hardest problems.

The quantum computer we envision building is based on a new kind of superconducting qubit: the Schrödinger cat qubit. In comparison to other superconducting platforms, cat qubits have the astonishing ability to implement quantum error correction autonomously!

We are at the forefront of the quantum race, competing with tech giants such as Google or IBM. We are growing fast, securing 30 million USD of funding in 2022 to develop our unique technology.

We are 80 and counting, between physicists, PhDs, engineers and experienced business professionals, all united in reaching our ambitious goal. If you are an explorer, craving to challenge yourself and make quantum computing come true, come and join us!

As a Nanofabrication Tool acquisition and process Engineer, you will be in charge of the acquisition and set-up of process equipments in our new cleanroom, covering the different steps of the process.

The crux of building a Universal Quantum Computer is the quality of its individual components, the qubits. In this context, you will have to interact with the to master advanced fabrication and characterization techniques to reach state-of-the-art performances.

The job implies frequent trips to partner technology platforms (Saclay, Paris), to equipment suppliers, and work in cleanroom.

Responsibilities

    • Establish initial specification for the tools (working in close collaboration with the other members of Nanofab team, and our Procurement Manager)
    • Perform review of the market (including organizing tests with suppliers if applicable)
    • Contribute to the final selection
    • Organize factory acceptance test, hook-up phase and site acceptance test (if applicable)
    • Establish process and documentation, to put the equipment “in production” at Alice&Bob

Requirements

    • A phd or master’s degree in nanofabrication, physical characterization, semiconductors or equivalent
    • Several years of cleanroom experience
    • Significant experience in buying/installation nanofabrication tools
    • Significant experience in nanofabrication process set up / process transfer
    • Beneficial
    • Significant experience with optical lithography, electron beam lithography, wet and dry chemical etching, thin film deposition
    • Experience in fabricating superconducting circuits
    • Knowledge of material and device characterization methods

Benefits

    • 25-day vacation policy (as per French law) + RTT
    • Half of transportation cost coverage (as per French law), or yearly allowance for the die-hard bicycle users
    • Competitive health benefits with Alan
    • Meal vouchers with Swile, as well as access to a fully equipped kitchen
    • Parental benefits with crèche support
    • Flexible remote policy, up to 25 % a month.
