Quantum Research Engineer position at VeriQloud

Quantum Research Engineer position at VeriQloud


VeriQloud is a com­pa­ny based in Paris and cre­at­ed in 2017. We work on quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­tion, with a full stack exper­tise, rang­ing from opti­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tions to appli­ca­tions of quan­tum cryp­tog­ra­phy. Our main focus is to engi­neer solu­tions to inte­grate quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies in oper­a­tional envi­ron­ment.


We are hir­ing a quan­tum research engi­neer to work with the Quan­tum Inter­net Alliance. This con­sor­tium led by QuTech at the Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty of Delft is fund­ed by the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion. Its goal is to devel­op the set of tech­nolo­gies for a quan­tum inter­net: a net­work of quan­tum ressources that com­mu­ni­cate using quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­tion links.


In col­lab­o­ra­tion with Paris Sor­bonne Uni­ver­sité, TU Delft and SAP, VeriQloud is work­ing on appli­ca­tions for the quan­tum inter­net. The recruit­ed per­son will devel­op soft­ware codes for exist­ing quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­tion pro­to­cols run­ning on Sim­u­laQron, a quan­tum net­work sim­u­la­tor devel­oped by QuTech, and build a library of quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­tion pro­to­cols. This library will be used to exper­i­ment the inte­gra­tion of quan­tum cryp­to­graph­ic pro­to­cols in real archi­tec­ture, design a core library of atom­ic quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­tion tasks to help the design of new quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­tion pro­to­cols, and esti­mate pre­cise­ly the resources required.

The recruit­ed per­son will work in close col­lab­o­ra­tion with oth­er insti­tu­tions work­ing on appli­ca­tions of quan­tum net­works, attend con­sor­tium meet­ings, and serve as an expert of soft­ware imple­men­ta­tion of quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­tion pro­to­cols to oth­er mem­bers of the con­sor­tium.


The ide­al can­di­date has a degree in physics, maths or com­put­er sci­ence, strong taste for pro­gram­ming, and some expe­ri­ence with quan­tum infor­ma­tion. We are expect­ing the can­di­dates to mas­ter some of the fol­low­ing skills:
— Python pro­gram­ming
— Clas­si­cal and quan­tum Cryp­tog­ra­phy
— Quan­tum infor­ma­tion
— Net­work pro­gram­ming
