        Analog IC Layout Engineer – building a Quantum Computer – UK or Remote


        Analog IC Layout Engineer needed for a company working on technology that could change computing. They are building a quantum computer – if they get it right their machine will be able to process calculations that would take current super computers BILLIONS of years!

        They have already received major funding and are looking to expand. They are looking for their first Analog IC Layout Engineer. You’d have ownership of the area and work directly with the Director of Design on the wider tech direction!

        You’d be joining at an early stage of the companies development so you will have real ownership and ability to shape the technical direction. They are in the process of raising Series A to continue their expansion, so they have big growth plans!

        You’ll also be working with an awesome and passionate multidisciplinary and experienced team of electronic engineers, physicists, quantum engineers and hardware engineers!

        What will you be doing and who will this suit?

        You will have responsibility for the layout of analog/mixed-signal circuit blocks primarily using Cadence. This will cover all levels of hierarchy from small cells to system-level.

        This opportunity is perfect for someone who wants to be part of something new. Who would love the chance to join a start-up (with the benefits AND risks this brings) and help shape the complete direction of the technical development of the company. It won’t suit someone who wants a big corporation, but if you want a challenge, the chance to join an awesome team that includes people from companies such as Google, Apple, Analog Devices and others, and want to have ownership of an entire technical area this is for YOU!

        What do you need?

        As an Analog IC Layout Engineer you will need:

        1. 3+ years experience in the layout of circuits implementing a strong understanding of analog/mixed-signal IC Design and Layout fundamentals and theory
        2. Good experience in the use of Cadence design tools (the dfII framework including Virtuoso etc)
        3. Great team player and able to show the flexibility to get things done that working in a start-up requires!

        What can they offer?

        They are based near London. They are happy with someone either working onsite or remotely. They have a decentralised team, with members as far away as Silicon Valley, and people across Europe.

        Competitive salary, and really good pension and equity options too!
