Quantum Computing Company

photonic product engineer quantum computing vacancy the netherlandsWe are a quantum computing company with an excellent track record in the development and sales of devices needed for quantum computing, such as photonic integrated circuits (PIC’s). Our pipeline of orders for products from customers is filling up, and now we are scaling up our teams.

In addition to finance, sales, marketing, and people/talent, we have four quantum teams: Quantum Matter & Optics (theorists & experimentalists), Quantum Engineering (development of quantum technologies), Quantum Software (algorithms), and Quantum Product (devices & projects).

For the Quantum Product team, we are seeking an enthusiastic (junior/medior) Photonic Product Engineer who feels a strong attraction to photonics and quantum computing and sees him-/herself more as a ‘handyperson’ than a scientific theorist.

Vacancy – Photonic Product Engineer

In your role as a Photonic Product Engineer, you will mainly work in our team that assembles, tests, and ships quantum processors to our customers. The specifics of your position can be divided as follows:

Assembly, Characterization, Verification

You will be responsible for the actual assembly of photonic processors, including all steps of testing, measuring, characterization, verification, and data processing/analysis of the PIC’s. Your thoughts and suggestions on all processes will be highly appreciated. This also means that you will be in contact with our suppliers to improve quality or suggest alterations to streamline operations.

As our supply chain grows, and we need to integrate all processes, you will also keep an eye open on the market for new suppliers to integrate. Therefore, we ask you also to manage (part of) the supply chain.

Customer Support

Since we deliver new technology to our customers, customer support is an integral part of your job. Questions will always come, and you, as the expert, can best answer them and provide support where needed.


You will work along or manage internal and external projects, report results internally, and, if you dare, externally, including representing us, as part of a team, at conferences and exhibitions.

Depending on your skills, experience, and ambition, we can shift tasks as our team members, your future colleagues, have a variety of skills and ambitions. Meaning, we can shape the position depending on your seniority. And of course we provide guidance and have many educational opportunities.

What should you bring?

First of all: having a good and nice personality as our future co-worker. A degree in Applied Sciences, Photonics, Electrical engineering, or similar. Familiarity or experience with optical lab equipment / photonic components like lasers, micro rings, MZI, etc. Of course, knowing how to evaluate and analyze data and being good to strong with Python.

What we offer

Growing from startup to scale-up means we succeeded in our ambition of becoming a market leader in quantum computing. In this journey, we invite you to come along. There are still lots of things to take care of, but the outlook looks promising based on our startup past. Your efforts will have a direct impact on our success in quantum computing and together we will be shaping the technology of the future.
