At Northrop Grumman, our employees have incredible opportunities to work on revolutionary systems that impact people's lives around the world today, and for generations to come. Our pioneering and inventive spirit has enabled us to be at the forefront of many technological advancements in our nation's history - from the first flight across the Atlantic Ocean, to stealth bombers, to landing on the moon. We look for people who have bold new ideas, courage and a pioneering spirit to join forces to invent the future, and have fun along the way. Our culture thrives on intellectual curiosity, cognitive diversity and bringing your whole self to work — and we have an insatiable drive to do what others think is impossible. Our employees are not only part of history, they're making history.

Are you interested in shifting into the cutting edge of IC circuit design? Your experience is needed, you'll leverage your current experience against our training and your team's experience and then you'll be designing RQL and superconducting devices in a highly collaborative environment in no time.

Northrop Grumman Mission Systems (NGMS) Advanced Capabilities division is leading the development of the next generation of high-performance computing. Superconducting electronics forms the core of our technology, with development thrusts in both quantum and classical logic. Our quantum computing activities include the development of superconducting devices for both quantum annealing and gate-model quantum computation. Our classical computing activities focus on energy-efficient computation using our patented superconducting digital logic technology, Reciprocal Quantum Logic (RQL). You’ll work in a fast-paced team environment alongside a broad array of scientists and engineers to make these processing solutions a reality.

We are seeking Analog/Mixed Signal IC Design Engineers to join our team in design and layout of full-custom digital and mixed signal superconducting circuits. You will use your skills as an Integrated Circuit designer while learning about superconducting circuit design. Tasks will include schematic capture, circuit simulation, circuit layout, physical verification (Layout vs. Schematic and Design Rule Checking), and parasitic extraction for a variety of superconducting circuits. The right candidate will be comfortable in a dynamic environment with rapidly developing technologies and tools. The candidate must have some experience in custom circuit design, preferably with Cadence Virtuoso. Experience with modeling circuit performance in Spice or Spectre, and/or experience with physical RF modeling in HFSS or COMSOL is highly desirable. Familiarity with quantum information is a plus. The candidate must be able to create a functional verification and test plan based on requirements of the circuit. The candidate should be able to take a design from concept through physical verification. Strong written and oral communication skills are required.

This position requires on-site work at our Advanced Technology Lab (ATL) in Linthicum, Maryland.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor's degree in a technical area with 2 years of experience in Analog/Mixed Signal Circuit design (0 years with technical MS or a PhD) - Experience with full product life cycle (requirements, design, implementation, simulation, verification) of mixed signal design
  • Working knowledge of mixed signal design flow including design, simulation, layout and physical verification (DRC/LVS)
  • Experience with some of the following: IC custom design tools (e.g. Cadence or Mentor) for schematic capture, circuit simulation, and full custom layout; mixed-signal circuit design experience (Digital and Analog); physical verification utilizing Cadence Assura or Mentor Calibre
  • Able to obtain and maintain a Secret clearance per business requirements. US Citizenship is a requirement of this.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience with circuit modeling in HFSS, ADS, or Matlab
  • Strong design automation skills
  • Electronics test lab experience
  • Knowledge of Quantum Information or Quantum Mechanics
  • Experience with low-temperature experimental measurements, microwave engineering
