Product Owner, Low Temperature Solution (m/w/d)

Qnami (Germany) GmbH

Qnami develops fundamental new technology using quantum mechanics. The control and measurement of the state of a single electron enables us to measure what could never be measured before. We call this quantum sensing and are enthusiastically developing this technique to improve people’s lives and the world.
Qnami is a magnet for talent looking to join the quantum revolution at the pulse. Young, multicultural, open and skilled, we have a deep passion for our work. We are both business and scientific minded. Each of us offers their top unique skills plus an intense work ethic and enthusiastic spirit – because we believe in what we do. We value diversity and have created a flexible open team culture of mutual respect that supports employees’ development and enables all of us to live healthy, well-balanced lives.
We develop and commercialize applications of NV Quantum Sensors (Nitrogen Vacancy), leveraging proprietary technology and unique know-how. Our first commercial product, the Qnami ProteusQ is a complete quantum microscope system. It is the first scanning NV microscope (nitrogen-vacancy) for analysis of magnetic materials at atomic scale, and features state-of-the-art electronics and software. The flexible design allows for future adjustments and scaling, expansion, and functionality additions.
To lead our new business line for the application of Scanning NV Magnetometry to low temperature (cryogenic) applications, we are seeking a
