SCALINQ is looking for a seasoned Senior Mechanical Engineer to join our team, with a focus on cryogenic hardware development. If you are an expert in 3D modeling, thermal load simulation, and mechanical simulation, and have a deep understanding of design for manufacturing and supply chain optimization, we’d love to hear from you!

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.


  • Lead the design and development of cryogenic hardware systems, from concept to production
  • Can use software such as Autodesk Inventor, Fusion360 or SolidWorks for 3D modelling to create detailed designs and prototypes
  • Study thermal load model and mechanical performance using software such as ANSYS, COMSOL or Abaqus
  • Work closely with the manufacturing team to ensure that designs can be effectively and efficiently manufactured using techniques like DFM (Design for Manufacturability)
  • Optimize supply chain processes to ensure the timely and cost-effective delivery of hardware systems using tools such as SAP or Oracle


  • Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering or a related field
  • At least 5 years of experience in hardware development (preferably cryogenic hardware)
  • Proficiency in software such as Autodesk Inventor, Fusion360, SolidWorks, ANSYS, COMSOL, Abaqus, SAP, Oracle
  • Strong knowledge of design for manufacturing and supply chain optimization
  • Excellent communication and leadership skills, with the ability to work effectively in a team environment
