About Nord Quantique

At Nord Quantique, we strive to build impactful technology by relentlessly pushing our understanding of quantum science. We are an interdisciplinary team of scientists, engineers, innovators, builders, and enthusiasts on a mission to make quantum computing a reality. Our quantum processors are designed to reduce errors in quantum computation to facilitate long-term scaling toward fully-fledged quantum computers. We believe it is our responsibility to deliver this transformative technology for the greater good of society.

Located at the heart of the beautiful Eastern Townships region in the province of Quebec, Canada, we develop our technology in the vibrant quantum ecosystem of Sherbrooke, . Leaning on more than a decade of vertical integration of quantum hardware, we are leveraging a comprehensive pool of quantum technology and micro-electronic infrastructure to deploy our quantum computing technology.

Our current needs

We are scaling our activities alongside our quantum processors. In this effort we are looking for an exceptional individual with a strong track record of theoretical work in the field of quantum error correction. This person will assist our team in the development of our bosonic code architecture.

More specifically, this individual will be leading the theoretical effort on error correction methods for bosonic codes, find tailored codes for our hardware specificities and guide the development of the hardware in a large-scale perspective. This person will evolve within a highly dynamic environment within the theory group.
