If you are looking to challenges yourself and be part of solving some of the most critical challenges within Quantum Computing, then continue reading! 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 cryogenic hardware.

SCALINQ is a spin-off from Chalmers University of Technology, and its pioneering research initiative focusing on developing a full stack, large-scale quantum computer. SCALINQ currently offers a product line of sample holders, LINQER. Sample holders sit the closest to the quantum processor unit (QPU) and it is vital for its performance. In our research, we are already developing the next generation of LINQER as well as multiple other needed solutions for facilitating the advancements within Quantum Computers.

With this position, we are looking for a person to strengthen our R&D team. We think that this is suitable for you with an M.Sc. or Ph.D. in engineering physics or electrical engineering with experience in microwave engineering and/or quantum physics.

Major responsibilities & qualities

As an engineer at SCALINQ, you will be a central piece in our R&D activities in close relation with our researchers from Chalmers. We expect you to be independent, self-propelled, and eager to take initiative. In this role, you will also participate in the development of the short and long-term technology strategy of SCALINQ. We hope you are willing and eager to shoulder a broad responsibility!

The role includes:

  • Managing, planning, and leading some of our R&D efforts
  • Coordinating the development conducted in-house and through our collaborative research projects
  • Support customer dialogues and collaborate with our customers to deeply understand wants, needs, opportunities, and trade-offs
  • Developing, implementing, managing, and evaluating SCALINQ’s technology resources
  • Communicating to various stakeholders, both internal and external

Desired competencies

  • Microwave engineering
  • Electromagnetic simulation, for example in ANSYS HFSS or Comsol
  • Microwave measurements using e.g. VNA and signal generators
  • Knowledge in ultra-high shielding of microwaves, infrared and magnetic fields
  • Microwave system design, e.g. PCB design
  • Mechanical design for cryogenic and/or microwave applications
  • Some industry standard tools such as Inventor or SolidWorks.
  • Low-temperature design
  • Experience with low-temperature mechanical design
  • Understanding the workings of cryogenic systems
  • Quantum Technology
  • Quantum computing and quantum information technology
  • Superconductivity
