Physicists have been at the forefront of some of the most important inventions of all time. These inventions have formed the basis of transition toward an improvement in quality of life. Atomionics is at that juncture and ready to revolutionize the domains of resource exploration and navigation. Our quantum sensors are based on cold atom interferometry and can measure gravity, acceleration, and rotation with high accuracy, precision, and sensitivity. The challenge? Making it work in a dynamic environment to enable real world applications that would extend the benefits of the energy industry to the next billion people.

We are looking for a cold atom physicist who:

  1. Wants to be involved in research while gracefully maneuvering through the technical constraints of field deployment
  2. Is excited by the prospect of working within an interdisciplinary team comprised of electronics engineers, mechanical engineers, and software engineers
  3. Would like to own their work via compelling equity offerings

We are a focused group in a high-energy environment. Our team consists of people at the top of their domains with a diverse set of experience, such as in advanced rocket engines, the first digital cameras, and high resolution microscopes, apart from cold atom physics. In addition, we are backed by some fantastic investors from the private and public sectors, such as Wavemaker, SGInnovate, Cap Vista, 500 Startups, and other prominent angels.
