Qnami is an early stage start-up company whose ambition is to go beyond the limit of
standard technology with quantum solutions. Specifically, we develop new tools for
magnetic imaging at the nanoscale. Our products are carved out of high quality diamond
and aim at both the academic research and the industry.
New team members:
Qnami is run by an ambitious entrepreneur with strong expertise in quantum physics and
a young professor from the Physics Department of the University of Basel. We are
currently looking for an expert in micro and nano-fabrication to complement the team.
Overview of the position
As chief technical officer, you will be responsible for the production of upfront and
backend solutions and work with the rest of the team on the product roadmap. Your
mission will demand to interact with customers, understand their needs and translate
them into scalable solutions. As an early team member you will be involved in strategic
decisions and in the recruitment as the team expands.
Your task will include nanofabrication (e-beam lithography, plasma etching,
micromanipulation…), quality control (confocal microscopy, scanning probe
microscopy) and customer support. Good communication skills are required, as well as a
