Qilimanjaro is a full-stack quantum computing company that builds analog Quantum Application Specific Solutions (QASICs) accessible on the cloud to bring quantum benefits now.

Why work for us

  • Get the opportunity to build something amazing and unique, something that hasn’t been done before
  • Work on ground-breaking projects and possibly solve massive challenges on a global scale
  • Be at the intersection of research and industry, where biggest innovations happen.
  • Make an enormous impact in a dynamic scale-up, rather than being a small cog in a big machine.
  • Work with super smart, knowledgeable and yet, very friendly people in Barcelona—one of the best cities in the world.

Training and development
Join Qilimanjaro to learn from our integrated hardware, software, and application teams focused on developing quantum analog solutions. We leverage superconducting qubit technology to maximize quantum advantage, concentrating on co-designing next-gen, app-specific analog quantum processors (QASIC). Our diverse team comprises scientists and doctors with extensive experience from renowned labs such as MIT, Caltech, Waterloo, Stony Brook, ETH Zurich, and TU Delft.

What we are looking for
We are looking for candidates able to conduct fundamental ground-breaking research in the hardware domain by advancing the design, fabrication and characterization of our signature Analog Quantum Computing devices based on flux qubit technology, and at the same time, willing to grow with the company and the team.
