PASQAL designs and develops Quantum Processing Units and dedicated software tools. These innovative processors address applications which are out of the reach of the most powerful existing supercomputers, encompassing real-world challenges as well as fundamental science. As they are very low energy intensive, they will significantly contribute to reduce the carbon footprint of the computing industry.
PASQAL has partnerships with key users in the fields of energy, IT, finance, drug and chemical design, automotive… The maturity and potential of our technology and the quality of our scientific team has been rewarded several times at French, European as well as global levels.
Our technology builds upon considerable knowledge accumulated over decades by the Institut d’Optique near Paris (IOGS / CNRS); it makes the best of numerous recent achievements in laser cooling of atoms, opto-electronics, vacuum and detection systems. Based in Massy and Palaiseau, at the heart of the quantum ecosystem south of Paris, PASQAL is funded by Quantonation, a VC fund focusing on Quantum Technologies, and is attracting world-class investors.
Joining PASQAL is an opportunity to contribute to the rapid development of a Deep-Tech startup at the forefront of the second Quantum Revolution. You will be directly involved in one of the greatest challenges ever, shaping the technology landscape of the 21st century. You will work among top-class engineers and scientists, competing against the world’s biggest players.
Integration Laboratory Engineer
Within the Engineering & Production team, you will be involved in the assembling of neutral atoms Quantum Processors. These complex systems use numerous leading-edge technologies including vacuum, optics, lasers, precision mechanics, electronics and software. As an Integration Engineer, you will contribute to the assembling, interconnection, setting to work and tests of the processor and its sub-systems, and to the characterization of their final performances.
You may also be involved in the implementation of new technological developments transferred from R&D, which you will contribute to industrializing on the next-generation processors. For this purpose, you will need to collaborate with both the R&D and the Quantum Software teams of Pasqal.
This position is a job creation, to foster the growth of PASQAL’s activity.
