Join a

Geophysicist for Quantum Gravimetry



Posted on Friday, June 30, 2023

Do you want to be a part of early development of a technology bringing seismic shifts in the way resource exploration is done at present?
At Atomionics, we are building quantum sensors using Atom Interferometry - harnessing the potential of the wave-nature of atoms - for resource exploration. Use of gravimetry in exploration has been limited since acquisition of ground gravity data is slow, expensive, and operationally cumbersome. Cold atom technology based quantum gravimeter, Gravio, provides data at a high spatial resolution on a mobile platform to streamline gravity surveys.

Atomionics is an early-stage, fast growing startup based in Singapore, backed by fantastic investors from the private and public sectors, such as Wavemaker, SGInnovate, Cap Vista, 500 Startups, and other prominent angels. As an early employee, you will be a culture contributor, helping define the culture of the company, and steering it to support the energy transition.
