Job Description:

Rigetti Computing is building the world's most powerful computers to solve humanity's most pressing problems. We believe this technology will fundamentally change the world for the better and will affect nearly every industry over the coming decades. Now a public company, Rigetti is looking to expand its Quantum Engineering team through the addition of an experienced PCB/Flex Process Engineer.As a PCB/Flex Process Engineer - Assembly and Manufacturing on the Hardware team at Rigetti Computing, you will develop cutting-edge solutions to enable the scaling of quantum computers in complexity to a larger number of qubits while increasing performance, focusing on developing high-density signal delivery leveraging flex and rigid PCBs, and assembly solutions that enable microwave RF signaling to our quantum devices at cryogenic temperatures. You will be working closely with a team of electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, and physicists, as well as outside component suppliers, to define component & assembly processes that meet these scaling & performance challenges. You will guide supplier process development and integrate components, design test protocols and integrate those components into the R&D and production release workflows.The ideal candidate brings experience working with suppliers on the materials & processes used in PCBs, Flexible Electronics, and Assembly of components, preferably using innovative materials. You enjoy working in a multi-disciplinary environment, and you excel at translating functional requirements into prototypes and then guiding those products through development into low-volume manufacturing. You are able to identify requirements and constraints and manage effective test programs that navigate these inputs. You are a strong communicator who keeps stakeholders informed and involved.As quantum computing leaders, we value diversity and are committed to building a culture of inclusion to attract and engage innovative thinkers. Our technology, meant to serve all of humanity, cannot succeed if those who built it do not mirror the diversity of the communities we serve. Applications from women, minorities, and other underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged.What You Bring to the Table:

  • Experience with the full development cycle of components - from concept to prototype to production- and with defining the requirements at each stage, including knowledge of quality control and manufacturing processes
  • Experience with process flows, integration challenges, and material choices for at least one of PCBs, Flex, and Assembly processes
  • Experience with plating processes - specifying & characterizing results
  • Familiarity with IPC A-610 and IPC 6013, or equivalent for quality and acceptance criteria of PCB and flex circuitry
  • Hands-on experience with Design for Manufacturing and identifying and solving defect issues & process control issues in PCB/Flex/Assembly, and being able to communicate feedback to the supplier for corrective action and yield improvement
  • You are excited by and value learning and growth
  • Excellent technical communication and collaboration skills in a multi-domain environment including mechanical engineers and physicistsBonus Points If You Have:
    • Understanding of superconducting and cryogenic behavior of materials and their use in electronic components
    • Familiarity with PCB layout softwareBenefits and Perks:Rigetti seeks individuals who are motivated by grand challenges and the opportunity to make a meaningful impact in the exciting quantum computing space.
