About us
We hold the key to making quantum useful! Q-CTRL is a company with a deep start-up spirit with offices in Sydney, Los Angeles and Berlin. Our goal is to revolutionize the quantum future of technology by delivering transformational, real-life outcomes for the world’s most innovative and impactful industry. Simply put, we make quantum technology useful.  

We’re led by our values; to be real, be trusted, be just, and be revered. They guide us in everything we do - how we work together and how we shape the future of the quantum field. We want the best talent in the world to join our team - from operations, product, design and marketing through to quantum research.  So whether you’re a quantum expert or simply unsure where you fit into a business like ours, we want to hear from you!

About the role:
Q-CTRL’s quantum sensors use software-layer quantum control technology to enable robust operation onboard dynamic platforms (e.g. a ship, an aircraft, a satellite). We are seeking a new Senior Scientist to help translate quantum sensor performance into capabilities that solve pressing challenges in navigation, cartography, civil engineering, and Earth observation. You will work closely with experts in quantum sensing to help ensure that our quantum sensors do more than “just work”; your quantitative modelling will inform the design, build, and operation of our quantum sensors for a given end-user application.

This is a dynamic, multidisciplinary role that focuses on determining what is required from a quantum sensor (in terms of, for example, precision, accuracy, bandwidth) to deliver new capability, and will include investigations into novel signal processing and data fusion methods for making the best use of information provided by Q-CTRL’s quantum sensors.
