Sr. Mixed Signal Engineer

Berkeley, CA
Technology Organization – Hardware Engineering
Full-time
As a Senior Mixed Signal Engineer within the Rigetti Control Systems team, you will develop the electronics that generate and condition signals for the readout and control of our quantum processor ICs . This includes the design of hardware over a large applications space from low frequency, low noise analog to the multi-GHz RF circuitry interfacing with our digital systems. In this role, you will draw upon your extensive background and interdisciplinary experience to rapidly deploy cutting edge solutions within increasingly complex systems.

About You

    • PhD or MS in Electrical Engineering
    • 10+ year experience designing RF and mixed signal systems
    • Track-record of full life-cycle, successful, product development and implementation
    • Proficient with mixers, PLLs, VCOs, and amplifiers and their integration within complex RF systems
    • Proficient at analog, low-noise circuit design and PCB layout techniques
    • Expert knowledge working in the use of high-speed, low-noise ADCs and DACs
    • Expert in the use of analog and microwave test equipment
    • Proven hands-on approach to circuit prototyping and debugging
    • Extraordinary technical communication and documentation skills
    • Able to work with and train technicians

Desired Qualifications

    • FPGA experience with a working knowledge of HDLs
    • Experience using Matlab, Python, and C/C++

ABOUT RIGETTI

Rigetti Computing is a full-stack quantum computing company based in Berkeley and Fremont, CA. We design and manufacture superconducting quantum integrated circuits. We package and deploy those chips in a low-temperature environment, and we build control systems to perform quantum logic operations on them. We build software to integrate our systems directly into existing cloud infrastructure.

Our product, Forest, is the world’s first full-stack programming and execution environment for quantum/classical computing. Forest includes Quil (quantum instruction language), our programming standard for quantum/classical computing.

We were founded by Chad Rigetti in 2013, and today employ over 100 people, about 40 of whom hold PhDs in physics, computer science, math, chemistry or engineering.
