We are growing. Are you?
If you've got a growth mindset, deep expertise in quantum technologies, and a passion for solving tough challenges, let's connect.
Our core values
As we build the world's first truly scalable universal quantum processors, we are defying conventional quantum approaches. Our approach is pioneering — requiring consistent questioning as we land on "better ways to do things." This approach requires bravery, openness, and a willingness to fail (and recover quickly) as we push the boundaries of innovation. We are biased towards action and adapt quickly to change. We are committed to a growth mindset, encouraging feedback, and supporting others in their growth.
Each of us is responsible for our words, our actions, and our results. Being accountable means that we are answerable for our actions and the actions of our teams. We are ethical and we honour our commitments.
Our team is the most valuable asset we have. We are inclusive and know that the collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, self-expression, unique capabilities and talent that we invest in our work represents a significant part of not only our culture, but our power to deliver results. We communicate openly, truthfully, and respectfully.
We’re revolutionizing quantum technologies
Aside from that, here’s a few other reasons to join us
Work with some of the brightest minds in quantum
Plus we’re pretty fun too! We work and celebrate in alignment with our core values.
We believe in continuous growth and support our team’s ongoing learning through courses, conferences, internal workshops, and promotions from within.
Flexible work hours
This includes onsite, remote, and hybrid work options. We trust our team to collaborate when needed and work at times that work for them.
Health Benefits for you & your family
Extended health (prescriptions, glasses, paramedical services), dental, life insurance, long-term disability coverage, an employee and family assistance program, and a flexible spending account.
This includes base salary, stock options at an early-stage company, benefits coverage, vacation days, and if you choose to relocate to Vancouver from abroad, we can support you and your family with work permits and relocation.
Take the time off you need to rest, recharge, and recover.
We are headquartered in beautiful British Columbia, Canada, with team members across the country. We are bringing next-generation quantum technologies – those based on photonically-active silicon spins – to tackle the challenge of building quantum systems practical enough to be deployed.
We’re looking for stellar people with a broad range of skillsets to join our team
If you’re a team player with a growth mindset, excellent communication skills, and experience in the areas listed below, we’d like to hear from you:
Quantum systems and quantum architectures
Quantum fault tolerance
Quantum middleware developers and users
Mixed-signal digital/analog electrical engineering
Spin qubits (or ion trap qubits)
Silicon integrated photonics design
Cleanroom fabrication and device packaging
Mathematics, ideally with graph theory, linear algebra and/or quantum exposure
We want explorers and team builders to join our journey in making the silicon tipping point in quantum a reality.
