Senior Scientist, Quantum Sensing
Quantum technology is likely to be as transformational in the 21st century as harnessing electricity was in the 19th. Q-CTRL is building a new quantum technology industry by overcoming the fundamental challenge in the field – hardware error and instability. Simply put, we make quantum technology useful. We have large-scale efforts in quantum computing and quantum sensing, and through our unique focus on quantum control, we have the ability to go everywhere that quantum goes.
Q-CTRL is a high-growth company that has a deep startup spirit. We’re excited by solving exceptionally difficult challenges and share an ambition to truly shape the emerging quantum technology industry, from our foundational R&D to world-leading product engineering. We are supported by tier-1 international venture capitalists, including Sequoia Capital, DCVC, Airbus Ventures, InQTel, Sierra Ventures, Squarepeg Capital, Main Sequence Ventures, Horizons Ventures, and Ridgeline Partners, giving us access to the capital that allows us to have a real impact.
Q-CTRL is a World Economic Forum Global Innovator and is a member of the Quantum Economic Development Consortium and the Tech Council of Australia. We are proud to have been selected as one of the Top 10 Most Innovative Tech Companies in Australia by the Australian Financial Review, and our work has been featured in The Economist, Forbes, Wired, Gizmodo, and more.
About the role
We are seeking a Senior Quantum Sensing Engineer with experience in quantum sensing. Specific areas of interest include optical and atomic magnetometry, atomic Gravimetry, and inertial navigation. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in sensor operation, automation, and data fusion. An understanding of dominant performance limits in fieldable systems is desirable.
You will join a growing team focused on quantum sensing for defense and aerospace. Our projects will leverage the deep expertise of the Q-CTRL quantum control engineers and will involve collaboration with hardware development teams.
