Open position for FPGA developer


The Walther Group is looking for a FPGA developer for taking care of electronics in cutting-edge photonic quantum computing experiments.

The tasks will deal, for example, with FPGA-based acquisition and processing of digital signals, analog clock synchronisation and implementation of feed-forward systems. The ideal candidate will work in close contact with scientists in the group, but also independently, therefore a high motivation for improvement and self-study is essential.


  • hands-on experience with RTL design and self-checking testbenches
  • knowledge of either VHDL or/and Verilog (systemVerilog) hardware description languages
  • experience with analog and digital signal processing as well as with RF componets
  • knowledge of an high-level programming language (preferably Python)

Desired qualifications:

  • experience in C/C++
  • impedance-matched PCB design, signal integrity
  • experience with design involving multiple clock domains
  • TCL scripting
  • high-speed (beyond 125 Msps) data acquisition systems

Application process

Please submit your application via email to as one single PDF. 

  • CV
  • letter of motivation (no more than 1 page)
  • contact details of 2 referees
