About SpeQtral

SpeQtral is developing space-based quantum systems for the global delivery of secure encryption keys.

Job Description

SpeQtral is looking for a highly motivated quantum optics engineer or scientist to join a team of space quantum pioneers at the office in Singapore. We are commercialising quantum communications to prepare the world for the quantum future. Think quantum space lasers, entanglement and military level secure communications. As part of our mission to transform the world’s networks we plan to launch a constellation of satellites to enable world-wide entanglement distribution. The earliest application of this is highly secure delivery of encryption keys to facilitate secret communications.
At SpeQtral, you would work directly together with a team of scientists and engineers to overcome the technical challenges of quantum communication in the real world.
Master’s degree in physics (with specialization in quantum optics, information or communication) and or two+ years of working experience in a relevant field, or PhD in quantum optics, information or communication
Exceptional academic achievements
Track record of publications and/or conference presentations in a relevant field
Curiosity about working on the forefront of deep tech development
Assist with/oversee the design and development of quantum and optics hardware and software systems
Join/lead a team of domain and technology experts implementing solutions based on state-of-the-art and/or cutting-edge R&D
Effectively present technical content internally as well as to customers or partners
Assist with creating commercial and research proposals to support work done at SpeQtral and with partners of SpeQtral
Other related functions as assigned
Technical skills:
Quantum optics: Experience with optical systems that operate in the single photon regime. Familiarity with measurements and analysis of quantum states, specifically for polarization encoding.
Examples: quantum state tomography, polarization entangled photon sources, weak coherent pulsed sources, single photon sources.
Free-space optical communications: Experience with transmitting photons over long distances through free space optical channels.
Examples: LIDAR, gaussian beam propagation, optical communications.
Quantum key distribution: Experience with quantum key distribution systems, free-space or fibre based.
Bonus technical skills – experience in any of the following topics is advantageous
Optical design software (Zemax)
Quantum key distribution software
Electronics engineering
Data analysis
Quantum communication theory, e.g., QKD protocols
Space-to-ground QKD
Optical communications
Control theory
