Job Description

In this position you will be joining Intel Labs and shape the future of computing by leading a team of incredibly talented engineers on the challenging task of building the control electronics for a practical quantum computer. The team is focused on leveraging the latest Intel process, packaging, and integration technologies to develop novel qubit control architectures and circuits that can scale to millions of qubits. You will be responsible for architecting, designing, and testing complex mixed-signal system-on-chip (SoC) and FPGA solutions that can interface the microinstruction layer of the quantum computing stack to the actual qubits by generating the complex control signals required to drive and read qubit states. You will work in close collaboration with both the software (SW)/algorithms and the qubit development teams.


At Intel we are approaching the problem holistically at the full stack, and so it is expected that you can efficiently interact with other teams outside your direct area of expertise to research and develop optimized qubit control solutions. Responsibility includes leading the team for complex SoC designs and testing, managing aggressive tape-out schedules, strategizing, and planning future research agenda and managing the team for growth and career development. Direct contributions for circuit design, innovation and testing is also expected.
