Do you want to help build a technology that enables autonomous cars, aircraft navigation, and even makes energy cheaper?
At Atomionics, we are building a sensing technology which performs 1000x better than the current state-of-the-art technologies, and it does so without requiring any external signal. We do this by harnessing the potential of the wave-nature of atoms using atom Interferometry.
With this interferometer we are building, we can pinpoint mineral and hydrocarbon reserves, produce an exponentially better GPS system, and make drift free navigation systems for aircrafts and underwater vehicles.
GPS infrastructure and technology are only built by nations, but what if we could together build an exponentially better navigation and positioning system and redefine sensing technology in the process? Building this interferometer has the chance to literally redefine the trajectory of technology and create a dent in the Universe (and measure the dent as well).
Atomionics is an early-stage fast growing startup based in Singapore, supported by NUS Enterprise, along with some of the best investors and business partners.
*Work in collaboration with electronics and atomic physicists to develop the system architecture to ensure robustness and reliability in a dynamic environment of Atom Interferometry sensing systems
*Design the housing and packaging for miniaturized atom-interferometry setup
*CAD models for precision manufacturing and fabrication of optomechanical benches
*Structural analysis and characterization to ensure robustness in harsh environment
*An absolutely driven individual with creative problem solving skills, analytical mind, and persistence, ideally, demonstrated
*Experience using Solidworks/Autodesk/other CAD software
*Experience in different manufacturing techniques
Even better if you have:
*Worked in a technical student team, or an early stage company environment
*Worked on personal hobby projects (and can brag about them!)
*We don't care for degrees, but if you have studied Mechanical/Mechatronics/Aerospace, or a related field, that’ll be delightful. Also open to candidates who have completed or are in the final year of their full-time Diploma course in Electrical/ Electronics/Mechatronics Engineering
What can we offer you:
*A chance to learn about the intricacies of deep tech research, product development, and strategy in a high-growth startup at the same time work with some of the best engineers and physicists. Learn the best practices in engineering and physics
*Work on the cutting edge of quantum technology
*Develop robust applications for translational research
*A book/hobby project allowance to help you grow and collectively build the Atomionics library
*Board games and curry night.
