Microsoft Research has been studying quantum computing for several years. Microsoft's Station Q in Santa Barbara has become the world's center of expertise on topological quantum computing with its own staff of theoretical physicists and close relationships with experimental teams around the world. QuArC, the quantum architecture and computation group in Redmond, complements these efforts with algorithm design work informed by the mathematical foundations of quantum information processing.

We are now beginning to pursue the quantum computer control problem, which will entail the development of computer systems built from RSFQ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSFQ> devices operating at 4 degrees Kelvin. We are currently looking to hire a few Principal and Senior-level hardware development engineers in Redmond with these technical qualifications:

-Familiarity with processor microarchitecture, especially hardware multithreading, cache implementation options, design for testability, and simulation of hardware-software systems;
-Hardware development experience and proficiency in Verilog or VHDL;
-Experience in developing performance-oriented C++ software;
-A degree in electrical engineering or physics, or familiarity with Maxwell's equations;
-Interest in both learning about and creating new technologies.
