Hardware Engineering
Quantum Circuits, Inc. is on a mission to transform quantum computation into a powerful platform that will solve the world’s most challenging problems. QCI is a start-up that spun out of the world-leading research labs of Profs. Rob Schoelkopf and Michel Devoret at Yale University in late 2015. We are committed to bringing to market the first practical quantum computer, built out of superconducting quantum circuit elements. Ours is a modular approach – we focus on scaling up a network of simple yet powerful quantum computing blocks, tackling challenges like error correction head-on. QCI’s scaling roadmap doesn’t stop at quantum hardware – we are building an entire quantum stack, in which software, control electronics, and algorithms development all play an integral role. We invite you to reach out to us and apply to join our motivated and multi-disciplinary team. Our goal is to revolutionize the field and usher in a new age of quantum information – be part of it.

As a QCI RF/Microwave Engineer, these are the kind of projects you’d be working on:

    • Designing and testing of passive and active microwave components for use in room temperature and cryogenic applications
    • Applying microwave engineering techniques to the domain of superconducting quantum circuits
    • Developing tools and techniques for the design, characterization, packaging, and validation of superconducting quantum devices
    • Design of scalable manufacturing and procurement processes for custom microwave hardware

What we’re looking for from you:

    • Extensive experience in passive/active microwave component design, testing, and manufacturing
    • Extensive experience in device simulation with software like Microwave Office, SPICE, Maxwell
    • Managing a portfolio of microwave engineering projects from design and testing to deployment
    • Degrees in electrical engineering, physics, or applied physics preferred
    • A background in quantum physics, and quantum computing in particular, is preferred
    • Excellent attention to detail, communication skills, and ability to work in an interdisciplinary team with professionals from other fields of physics and engineering
