Characterization and Measurement Quantum Engineers

We are looking for highly motivated candidates to join our permanent staff.

At Qilimanjaro we work on superconducting-based quantum computers, both gate-based systems as well as our signature product, coherent quantum annealers.

Both project lines (gate-based systems and coherent quantum annealers) have multiple positions open and we are considering candidates from a master’s level and above. Your degrees and experience years may be counted into seniority.

Job description:

As a characterization and measurement engineer, your primary responsibility will be the characterization of QPUs as well as running the algorithms proposed by our applications team, together with the control and driving of the cryogenic equipment hosting the QPUs.  Your secondary responsibility will be to contribute to improvement of the Python-based measurement software.


  • Master’s degree or above in quantum computing or related subject.
  • Good command of English language (oral and written)
  • Experience with quantum device characterization and measurement.
  • Programming in Python.
  • Experience in electronics (GHz and radio-frequency domains preferrable).
  • Former experience in quantum technology laboratories.

Any of the following skill will be highly valued:

  • Experience in cryogenics.
  • Previous leadership role/experience.
  • Electromagnetic simulation software (e.g., HFSS, CST, Maxwell, Sonnet).
  • Nanofabrication (e.g. Lithography, evaporation, sputtering).

Offices: Autonomous University of Barcelona Campus or other locations.
