Your Role

As a Software Engineer, you are responsible for developing, maintaining and supporting software that enables quantum experiments across the labs.

This software includes, but is not limited to:

        ·    Instrument drivers

You are therefore a generalist, comfortable to take up various tasks at different levels of abstraction. You are able to trade off the needs of the various users and choose for reusable solutions where possible. Software quality and maintainability is important to you.

You are able to interact efficiently with researchers in the quantum domain (Ph.D. candidates and postdocs) and are able to translate their domain-specific needs to the software domain. A background in or affinity with quantum physics/theory is useful.

The projects:

Mature radically new technology with world-changing potential in the quantum field

Develop scalable prototypes of a quantum computer and an inherently safe quantum internet, based on the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics
