Semiconductor Packaging Engineer
Location: Burnaby, BC
D-Wave is looking for exceptionally motivated people who love to see the impact of their work on a daily basis, who are driven to ensure the success of the company, and who want to be a part of something special. We are working to radically change what is possible with computers and are leading the effort to commercialize quantum computing.
D-Wave’s systems are multi-disciplinary in nature spanning physics, algorithm design, mechanical engineering, software engineering, cryogenics engineering, low noise analog and digital electronics, conventional computer networking, and a low magnetic field environment. The company's flagship product, the D-Wave 2000Q, is built around a novel superconducting quantum processor designed to exploit quantum resources known to offer large computational speedups on several types of problems. The D-Wave adiabatic quantum computer is able to sample from probability distributions and optimize functions that are computationally intractable using classical hardware. D-Wave Systems are currently being used by customers such as Lockheed-Martin, Los Alamos National Lab, NASA and Google.
D-Wave Systems is looking for someone to join us as a packaging engineer to work with the sampleholders which house our integrated superconducting quantum processor chip. We want to answer questions about why/how these packages failed, where can they be made more robust, and how the low-volume of production can be made more stable. These packages are very different than standard chip packages; experience with many standard packaging processes, typical failure analysis methods and semiconductor physics may have little relevance. Since you’ll be pioneering new techniques to solve atypical engineering challenges, we are looking for someone who is inventive and a foundational/original thinker.
You’ll bring a deep expertise in wire bonding and a scientific mindset, keen to dig deep into understanding technical problems.
Experience in one or more of the following will be highly valued:
