Qblox is looking for a quantum application engineer to help us build a control stack for an industrial-scale quantum computer. These quantum control stacks generate the analog signals needed for the control and readout of quantum bits. As a quantum application engineer, it is your role to design and build the application layer needed by our customers to operate the control stack. You will create examples and tutorials of quantum computing experiments and communicate these to the world by writing whitepapers. You will test the equipment and provide the developers with feedback on its performance. Furthermore, you will provide support to our customers and communicate their feedback with the development team.

For this job, we are looking for someone with:
  • a PhD in physics with experimental research in quantum technology,
  • great English communication skills
  • a hands-on mentality in making experimental setups work.
  • experience in building and debugging experimental setups with RF signals,
  • programming skills in Python

With a dedicated team of scientists, engineers and developers we are pushing quantum technology to support experimentalists worldwide with our scalable and low-latency qubit control and readout equipment (from ultrastable DC to 18.5 GHz, for academic and industrial quantum labs). In addition to scalable control hardware, we have created state-of-the-art control software – Quantify, an open-source python framework that can be used to control quantum computers and experimental setups.

At Qblox we celebrate equality and diversity. We’re striving to build a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, cultures, perspectives, experiences, and skills. We are a spin-out from QuTech (a collaboration between Delft University of Technology and TNO) based in Delft, a historical city in The Netherlands located between The Hague and Rotterdam. You will join a highly-skilled and motivated team. We are shaping the future and have a lot of fun while doing so!
