PASQAL is a dynamic french startup which develops Quantum Simulators and Quantum Computers around Quantum Processing Units using arrays of neutral atoms. These Quantum Information Processors address many complex issues encompassing fundamental science as well as many grand challenges.

They have build on the considerable knowledge and experience accumulated over a decade by the team of Antoine Browaeys and Thierry Lahaye at Institut d’Optique near Paris (IOGS, CNRS), and on numerous achievements in the engineering of lasers, control, vacuum and detection systems.


As a quantum hardware engineer, you will be involved in the building and operation of neutral atoms quantum processors. Within the hardware team, you will contribute to the development of a processor and the testing and validation of its final performance. 

You will also be involved in the design and implementation of new technological developments, which you will be responsible for testing on the processor. For this purpose, you will need to collaborate across the hardware and software teams of Pasqal.

You will finally assist in the implementation on the processor of quantum simulations and quantum computing algorithms.

Key responsibilities:

  • Develop and operate a quantum processor made of neutral atoms,
  • Guarantee the performance and the specifications of the processor,
  • Integrate new technological developments for the processor.


  • PhD in atomic and molecular optics,
  • Research experience in a lab, possibly in cold atom experiments,
  • Skills in Quantum Information,
  • Good interpersonal skills and be able to work within a team.
