Hardware Test Automation Engineer

Full TimeDelft, The NetherlandsQblox

We are a spin-out from QuTech (a collaboration between Delft University of Technology and TNO) based in Delft, a historical city in The Netherlands located between The Hague and Rotterdam.

With a dedicated team of scientists, engineers and developers we are pushing quantum technology to support experimentalists worldwide with our scalable and low-latency qubit control and readout equipment (from ultrastable DC to 18.5 GHz, for academic and industrial quantum labs). In addition to scalable control hardware, we have created state-of-the-art control software – Quantify, an open-source python framework that can be used to control quantum computers and experimental setups.

Your mission:

Qblox is looking for a Hardware Test Automation Engineer to help us deliver high-quality control stacks for quantum computers. These quantum control stacks generate the analog signals needed for the control and readout of quantum bits. The signals have frequencies spanning the range from DC to the microwave regime and need to have extremely low noise, temperature drift and interference. To reach these analog properties as well as stringent timing criteria in quantum computing, signals are generated using high-end FPGAs connected to high-speed data converters. Furthermore, it is required that the control stack is scalable and can grow to accommodate larger quantum processors.

As a Hardware Test Automation Engineer, you’ll be part of the Production & Testing Team. You’ll be helping establish an automated testing process of our products in-house. This includes defining test strategies, designing and building modular test setups, developing scalable software for these setups, and analysing test results. You’ll work under the supervision of the Test & Automation Lead.

Your Profile:

You have a Master’s or Bachelor’s degree and required to have experience in a professional environment doing:

  • Experience with various test and measurement equipment
  • Solid experience with at least one programming language, preferably Python or C#
  • Good understanding of OOP
  • Experience with test automation tools and frameworks, preferably OpenTAP
  • Experience defining test strategies
  • Ability to document things in a structured way
  • Comfortable with Git
  • Ability to review and be reviewed in a structured way
  • Experience with issue tracking systems, preferably Jira
  • Affinity with electronics and signal processing
  • RF domain experience is a plus

At Qblox we celebrate equality and diversity. We’re striving to build a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, cultures, perspectives, experiences, and skills. You will join a highly-skilled and motivated team. We are shaping the future and have a lot of fun while doing so!
