About Qilimanjaro:

Quantum computing will change the world but with current approaches, the
true impact of quantum computers lays at least a decade away. We plan to offer
true quantum computational power to solve industry critical problems,
specifically in the area of optimization and machine learning, in a much shorter

The Qilimanjaro Quantum Tech SL startup company is the quantum spin-off
from the Barcelona Supercomputer Center (BSC), the University of Barcelona
(UB) and the Institute of High-Energy Physics (IFAE) that started operations in
2020 on the back of international customer multi-year contracts.

Qilimanjaro has brought together a great team of scientists with extensive
training, knowledge and experience in international labs at MIT, Caltech,
Waterloo in Toronto, Stony Brook and TU Delft.

Our integrated hardware & software team focuses on superconducting qubits for
gate-based quantum computers to focus on timely and affordable quantum
advantage, by designing next-generation analog quantum processors with high
quality qubits, which do not require quantum error correction and can therefore
be faster-to-market.

We are looking for highly motivated candidates to join our permanent staff.

At Qilimanjaro we work on superconducting-based quantum computers, both
gate-based systems as well as our signature product, coherent quantum

Both project lines (gate-based systems and coherent quantum annealers) have
multiple positions open and we are considering candidates from a master’s level
and above. Your degrees and experience years may be counted into seniority.

Job description:

As a characterization and measurement engineer, your primary responsibility will
be the characterization of QPUs as well as running the algorithms proposed by
our applications team, together with the control and driving of the cryogenic equipment hosting the QPUs. Your secondary responsibility will be to contribute
to improvement of the Python-based measurement software.


  • Master’s degree or above in quantum computing or related subject.
  • Good command of English language (oral and written)
  • Experience with quantum device characterization and measurement.
  • Programming in Python.
  • Experience in electronics (GHz and radio-frequency domains preferrable).
  • Former experience in quantum technology laboratories.

Any of the following skill will be highly valued:

  • Experience in cryogenics.
  • Previous leadership role/experience.
  • Electromagnetic simulation software (e.g., HFSS, CST, Maxwell, Sonnet).
  • Nanofabrication (e.g. Lithography, evaporation, sputtering).

Offices: Autonomous University of Barcelona Campus or other locations.

Please mention in your application both availability dates and whether you
would need an EU work permit to be arranged.
