Quantum computers have the potential to reshape our lives for the better and disrupt industries in ways we can’t imagine—but we are not there yet! There are still several engineering challenges that need to be solved. SCALINQ is on a mission to help accelerate the development of quantum computers by supplying the industry with the needed supporting hardware technologies. Our focus and expertise are within microwave engineering, focusing on packaging solutions and related components for quantum computers.


For this role, we believe you have a background in engineering or physics preferably with experience in microwave engineering. It is advantageous if you know PCB design or have experience in any microwave simulation software such as HFSS, Comsol, CST. Being curious about quantum computing is a must, but we do not require any experience in that field.

The role

  • Scope: We have several interesting projects which we can adapt depending on the background and interest of the candidate.
  • Educational Level: Graduate level / Master’s student
  • Language: English
  • Location: Remote or on-site, depending on the scope. We have offices in Gothenburg, Sweden and Chicago, IL.
  • Duration: Spring 2023
  • Last application date: 2022-12-31

We also offer thesis opportunities! Read more here.

How to apply:

Apply by sending your CV and personal letter describing your area of interest to careers@scalinq.com Make sure to write “Microwave Design Internship” in the subject.

About us

SCALINQ is a spin-off from Chalmers University of Technology, a pioneering player in quantum computing. We currently offer a product line of sample holders that we call LINQER. Sample holders sit the closest to the quantum processor unit (QPU) and it is vital for the performance of the computer. We develop state-of-the-art solutions and we are already working on the next generation of LINQER as well as multiple other needed solutions for facilitating the upscaling of quantum computers. The company is headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, and has a U.S. presence in Chicago, IL.

What we offer

Our biggest strength is the people that define our company. Everyone contributes in their own unique ways and with their particular skill sets. We have a multicultured environment that is filled with knowledgeable and creative colleagues and that encourages people to make their ideas happen. At SCALINQ, you can have an impact like nowhere else. We all help each other to build new skills and best practices through the diversity of our backgrounds and opinions – while having a lot of fun in the process. Our culture is highly rooted in responsibility, inclusiveness, and diversity. We are a team of ambitious and energetic individuals and we are in it for the long haul! We value a healthy life/work balance and we are all about celebrating the small as well as large successes.

Sounds like fun? Then we’d love to get to know you!
