Quantum Engineer

Full time │ Pisa (Italy)

At Planckian we develop architectures for quantum computers, scalable by
design. Our approach leverages a unique platform to solve interdependencies at play
between energy and quantum information processing, targeting operational
efficiency.


We are now seeking a Quantum Engineer to expand our team.


If you:

  • Are ready to join a group of emerging scientists and leading experts bridging
    the gap between theoretical quantum physics and useful quantum
    technologies.
  • Strive to work at the center of a world-class research ecosystem.
  • Have the rare combination of both outstanding technical skills and boldness to work at the frontier in a dynamic startup environment

We would love to learn more about you.

What You’ll Be Doing

You’ll work to advance the design of novel QPU architectures based on
