Job Description
Quantum Circuits, Inc. (QCI) is developing a full-stack quantum computing platform using superconducting devices and a modular, robust, and scalable architecture. QCI's mission is to build the first truly useful quantum computers.
Our novel approach to building quantum computers is based on technology developed over a decade of research at Yale University's world-class quantum labs. Our machines have built-in error correction, unique software features that enable lightning-fast algorithm execution, and multiple modes of operation to solve more algorithms than ever, all in one quantum computer.
Why join QCI? You’ll be working with the latest technology at our state-of-the-art facilities, where your curiosity, ingenuity, and initiative will thrive - you'll learn a ton by working with us and have a lot of fun doing it. We have a deep, fast-paced team that's passionate about building the best quantum computers in the world. Join us if you want to be at the forefront of the quantum revolution.
This position plays a critical role in the core mission of QCI: building scalable, high-performance quantum computers. Quantum devices are superconducting circuits that require specialized handling, measurement, and analysis and your work will have a direct impact on the performance of the computer.
As a QCI Fabrication Engineer, these are the kinds of projects you’d be working on:
  • Leading efforts to standardize, validate, and scale current and future nano-fabrication processes
  • Operating and maintaining tools such as electron beam lithography systems, metal depositions systems, resist spinners, and wet and dry etch setups in a clean-room environment
  • Optimizing fabrication procedures to maximize superconducting quantum device yield and performance
  • Developing creative nano-fabrication techniques for superconducting quantum devices
  • What we’re looking for from you:
  • Extensive experience with operating and maintaining multi-layer electron-beam lithography, thin-film deposition (e-gun and sputtering), scanning-electron microscopy, wet and dry etch tools
  • Experience with fabrication of microwave superconducting devices, including process-development for Josephson junction-based devices, is preferred. This includes Dolan bridge, bridge-free, and “Manhattan”-style processes.
  • Extensive experience in laboratory and cleanroom environments
  • Experience with developing and troubleshooting novel fabrication processes
  • PhD in physics, electrical engineering, material science or equivalent experience in industry
  • A background in quantum 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
  • Everything You Need, One Platform.
