    About

    We are taking up the challenge of building an ideal Quantum Computer, from the first building block to the whole machine. Alice&Bob was launched in February 2020.
    In a very short time, the team has grown from 4 to 24 people to meet this major challenge! Alice&Bob raised 3M€ in May 2020 to support its growth.

    We believe that small high-performance teams can have a worldwide impact. We are at the forefront of the quantum race, competing with tech giants such as Google or AWS.

    Job description

    The quantum computer we envision building is based on a new kind of superconducting qubit invented and developed by Alice & Bob and its academic partners : the Schrödinger cat qubit. The crux of this qubit is its astonishing ability to implement quantum error correction autonomously. We already demonstrated experimentally the exponential suppression of bit-flip errors. As a quantum physicist at Alice & Bob, you will be on the frontline designing and controlling our cutting-edge qubit experiments.

    If you are a tech explorer, craving to challenge yourself and make quantum computing come true, come and join us!
