Electronic Hardware Engineer
The Electronic Hardware Engineer designs and optimizes mixed-signal electronic circuits and plays a key role in the development of many design flows. You will design digital and analog electronic circuits for implementing truly scalable quantum computers. You will be an expert in the design and simulation of electronic circuits and systems. You will be comfortable working in a diverse, multi-disciplinary team of engineers, and scientists.
What we need you to do:
- Design and realize mixed-signal electronic circuit boards
- Design circuits that involve high-frequency low-noise analog front ends, ADCs, DACs, FPGAs, Microcontrollers, and DSPs
- Prepare schematics and layouts with common EDA
- Source required parts, equipment, and work with relevant vendors
- Build and use electronic benches for assembly, test, and measurement
- Evaluate designs with numerical simulations and detailed comparison with test data
- Write new firmware required to meet design and analysis goals
- Direct and/or conduct electrical experiments as needed to support design efforts
- Present results to cross-functional teams
- Work on issues of integration with other sub-systems
- Drive research and development in the low power and low-temperature electronics field
What you bring to our team:
- Undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering or a related field. Master’s or PhD degree in Electrical Engineering or a related field is preferred.
- 7 years of industry experience or an equivalent combination of education and work experience
- Outstanding teamwork skills
- Excellent interpersonal and written communication skills
- Experience working in a start-up environment is a plus
You bring expertise in one or more of:
- Electronic layout and simulation tools like Altium Designer, OrCAD-PSpice, Keysight-ADS, or equivalent
- RF-Microwave circuit design and measurement
- High-frequency signals, EMI, and EMC
- Designing and optimizing electronic circuits and systems
- Proficiency in electronic bench experiments with tools such as meters, oscilloscopes, network analyzers, etc.
- Familiarity with electronics designed for vacuum and cryogenic operation is a plus
Photonic is designing the world’s first quantum processor in silicon. It would be awesome if you had some familiarity with quantum physics, mathematics, and programming, but we will ensure that team members will have the opportunity to learn about quantum computing as we grow.
