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!

We are looking for an quantum engineer to join our Infrastructure & Screening team.

Responsibilities

    • The screening at room temperature of quantum devices fabricated in the cleanroom
    • The measurement and control of quantum devices, once installed in the cryostats
    • Performing automated DC and RF characterization.
    • Writing software to calibration of superconducting quantum bits, measurements using VNA, spectrum analyzer, oscilloscope, AWGs, etc.
    • Writing software to automatize chip Screening
    • Developing, maintaining and operating Python notebooks for chip Screening.
    • Conducting data analysis of test results and writing reports/synthesis
    • Training other people from Alice&Bob who need to use the equipments

Requirements

    • A Master’s degree in electrical engineering / semiconductor technology / experimental physics
    • At least a first relevant experience in quantum physics
    • Knowledge of quantum superconducting circuits cryogenic measurements (resonators, transmons...)
    • Good understanding of good software development practices, Python language, and version control systems

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.
