Quantum System on Chip Lead

We are seeking a highly skilled and experienced Quantum System on Chip (QSoC) Lead to join our team. The QSoC Lead is a critical role in our company, and the position requires a strong technical background in SoC design, with a focus on leading complex projects from concept to production.

The role includes overseeing the entire chip design process, ensuring the successful integration of diverse components onto a single chip. The successful candidate will advance the architecture, design implementation, verification, test strategy, packaging and physical integration of our next generation QSoC solutions. The components for QSoC are typically custom analogue, RF and digital IP including 3rd party vendors, CPU systems and custom accelerators, high-speed IO channels, memory subsystems, and quantum dot arrays.

Main Duties and Responsibilities

  • Own the QSoC development process, from project launch to validation.

  • Develop a robust methodology for mixed signal QSoCs that include quantum arrays, covering all aspects of an SoC design flow from RTL, functional verification and schematic representation to physical verification in 22nm and smaller technology.

  • Demonstrate technical leadership driving projects from start to the finish, with regular design reviews ensuring high quality throughout all phases of design, verification, and integration.

  • Ability to clearly define an execution plan with milestones, and detailed resource estimates. 

  • Collaborate with architecture, hardware, software, and quantum teams to generate the project requirements.

  • QSoC architecture partitions of the device, selecting components, interfaces, and optimizing performance, and making appropriate and balanced trade-offs.

  • Provide clear inclusive direction for all involved parties 

  • Lead a team of designers to quickly overcome project blockages to maintain overall goals.

  • Hands-on approach to resolving issues as they arise throughout the execution cycle.

  • Liaise with foundry partners.

  • Evaluate third party IP and support for test chip design and developing strategies for testing including post silicon.

  • Generate clear and concise documentation, reports, and regular presentations to communicate verification results, status, and recommendations to stakeholders and management.

Experience and Qualifications

  • 15+ years of experience in SoC, with a minimum of 5 years leading SoC design teams.

  • Experience in low power SoC design architectures, and system partitions.

  • Experience in digital, RF and analogue design and thorough understanding of device level operations.

  • Experience with current EDA tools and solutions used for large SoC design, including RF and packaging

  • solutions.

  • Experience in design evaluation of 22nm and smaller geometries, post silicon, and debugging design flaws.

  • Expertise in large multi-disciplined project planning, methodology development, reporting, and effective communications across multiple design locations.

  • Excellent problem-solving, debugging, and analytical skills.

  • Experience with quantum computing and related technologies is a plus.

  • Self-motivated and proactive, with the ability to work independently, anticipate issues, and manage multiple projects simultaneously.

  • Bachelor's or Master's degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or a related field.

​If you are a highly motivated and experienced SoC engineer looking for a challenging and rewarding role, we encourage you to apply for this exciting opportunity.
