Quantum Computing Architect

QuiX Quantum is at the forefront of the development of photonic quantum computing, a rapidly developing sector. We are a tech start-up based in Enschede, the Netherlands. Since our start in 2019, we have presented two world record-breaking quantum photonic processors. As a fast-growing company, we are now looking for support for our quantum computing architecture.  


What will you be doing?

As a quantum computing architect, you will work on abstract quantum computing architectures for fault tolerant quantum computing. Using theoretical analysis,simulations, and discussion you will try to detect ‘weak spots’ and ‘opportunities’in different architectures and propose solutions or alternatives. The job is very broad and includes all aspects related to the quantum computing architecture and the possibility to provide leadership on where the hardware/experimental work should go.


You will take care of:

·        Development of our current quantum computing architecture

·        Keeping yourself up to date and update others about the latest developments in the world about quantum computing

·        Identify critical architectural challenges

·        Understand and explain mathematical concepts used in quantum computing

·        Report findings and attend weekly meetings


We can shape the position depending on seniority.


What we ask of you:

·        Technical background, PhD preferred,exceptional master’s students considered
