About us:
D-Wave is looking for exceptionally motivated people who love to see the impact of their work, who are driven to ensure the success of the company, and who want to be a part of something special. We are working to radically change what is possible with computers and are leading the effort to commercialize quantum computing. This is an exceptional opportunity for an individual that thrives on making an impact not only with those they support, but through the company they are a part of.

D-Wave’s business:
D-Wave is the leader in quantum computing systems, software, and services and is the world’s first commercial supplier of quantum computers. Our web service, LeapTM, is the only cloud service that delivers real-time access to a quantum computer (currently the D-Wave 2000Q) and a full suite of open-source programming tools. Leap now has hybrid capabilities that combine the power of quantum and classical computers, analogous to the way a CPU works with a GPU, enabling the solution of very large problems. Software tools make programming easy, in languages like Python.

D-Wave’s customers have developed more than 200 early applications of our quantum system. With the combined capabilities of the next generation system, Advantage, and the recently introduced hybrid solvers, D-Wave’s customers will be able to deploy these capabilities to benefit their businesses.

The Cryogenic Testing Coordinator role:
D-Wave is looking for a Cryogenic Testing Coordinator to join the Processor Development group and help run a world class low temperature research lab and production facility. This is a 14-month position.

You will have exposure to the entire scope of our research effort, from design through fabrication, characterization, and integration into an eventual quantum processor, in a dynamic and fast-paced environment.

Responsibilities Include:
Coordinating rapid-cycle cryogenic testing of superconducting circuits to address current challenges in both the design and fabrication of working processors
Working with scientists, engineers, and technicians to develop, maintain, and perform processes to ensure effective preparation and installation of test chips - from wafer to functioning processor
Selecting, organizing, and tracking experimental tests
Using and developing tracking tools for hardware changes, cryogenic testing protocols, data management and analysis
Communicating across teams onsite and offsite to facilitate scheduling of operations and dissemination of testing results

Required Qualifications:
Undergraduate degree or college diploma in a technical discipline (such as science or engineering) or and equivalent combination of education and experience
Experience with measurements and data collection in a research or industrial lab
Enthusiasm and ability to learn new material quickly
Strong organizational skills and an attention to detail
Ability to adapt to rapidly changing priorities
Ability to work collaboratively in a diverse cross-disciplinary team environment
Strong creative problem-solving skills
Strong written and verbal communication skills
Excellent computer skills
Understanding of or experience with any of the following would be an asset: superconducting physics, cryogenics, or semiconductor fabrication techniques
