Photonic is growing. Our Vancouver-based team is 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.

Photonic is HiringWe’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 one or more of the following areas, we’d like to hear from you:

  • Quantum systems and quantum architectures
  • Quantum fault tolerance
  • Quantum middleware developers and users
  • Software developers with quantum exposure
  • Spin qubits (or ion trap qubits)
  • Quantum optics
  • Silicon integrated photonics design
  • Cleanroom fabrication and device packaging
  • Cryogenic engineering
  • Microwave engineering
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Mixed-signal digital/analog electrical engineering
  • ASIC design
  • FPGAs
  • Systems engineering
  • Mathematics, ideally with graph theory, linear algebra and/or quantum exposure


Ideally, you’ll also have 5 years of progressively responsible related work experience or an equivalent combination of education and work experience.

Most likely, you’ll have an undergraduate, Master’s and/or a PhD degree in Engineering, Math, Applied Science, Physics, Chemistry or another relevant discipline.

If you’d like to be part of a team working on the next generation of quantum technologies, send your resume and cover letter outlining your skills and experience to or visit our careers section and complete the online application.

Photonic is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of equity, diversity, and inclusion. Our team is the most valuable asset we have. We embrace and encourage our employees’ differences, knowing that these very differences inspire innovation and build better teams.

Please let us know if you require any accommodations during the recruitment process.
