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 experimental physicist to assist our quantum hardware team in developing our bosonic code technology. As part of the hardware group, this person will carry out experiments in cryogenic environments to characterize our quantum processors, as well as to improve and develop control protocols. The person will be evolving in a highly dynamic, team-oriented environment and will receive support from the theory team to drive the technology forward.
