Full-Stack Developer

Siegen, Ger­many

Job Type: Full-time, On-site

For our quan­tum com­put­ing start­up we are look­ing for a research asso­ciate to work on ion trapped quan­tum com­put­ers as soon as possible.

ele­Qtron devel­ops and oper­ates full quan­tum com­put­ers based on trapped ions. The tech­nol­o­gy we have devel­oped, called MAGIC (MAg­net­ic Gra­di­ent Induced Cou­pling), allows the qubits to be reli­ably and accu­rate­ly con­trolled using estab­lished, inex­pen­sive and minia­tur­iz­able radio fre­quen­cy tech­nol­o­gy. In doing so, our inter­na­tion­al and diverse team pro­vides an ide­al envi­ron­ment for per­son­al growth in a com­pet­i­tive growth industry.

When it comes to the per­for­mance of cur­rent quan­tum com­put­ers, our machines are at the fore­front. We believe our next-gen­er­a­tion com­put­ers will be able to find solu­tions to prob­lems that are unat­tain­able today — enabling new inno­v­a­tive prod­ucts and ser­vices for a bet­ter future.

The quan­tum rev­o­lu­tion is on everyone’s lips. Join us and be a part of it!


We are look­ing for a Full-Stack Devel­op­er to inter­face our ion-trap quan­tum computers.
