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
