FPGA Developer


SpeQtral is looking for a highly motivated FPGA developer to join a team of space quantum pioneers at the office in Singapore. We are commercialising quantum communications to prepare the world for the quantum future. Think quantum space lasers, entanglement and military level secure communications. As part of our mission to transform the world’s networks we plan to launch a constellation of satellites to enable world-wide entanglement distribution. The earliest application of this is highly secure delivery of encryption keys to facilitate secret communications.

At SpeQtral, you would work directly together with a team of scientists and engineers to overcome the technical challenges of quantum communication in the real world.


  • Bachelor’s degree in electronics engineering with five years of working experience, or master’s degree in electronics engineering with two years of working experience.
  • Exceptional academic/industrial achievements and/or demonstrated passion for technology through extra-curricular activities
  • Curiosity about working on the forefront of deep tech development


  • Design, program and test FPGA-based platforms for Quantum Key Distribution systems.
  • Collaborate with a team of domain and technology experts implementing solutions based on state-of-the-art and/or cutting-edge R&D
  • Prepare user documentation and guides to support the usage of QKD hardware
  • Effectively present technical content internally as well as to customers
  • Assist with creating commercial and research proposals to support work done at SpeQtral and with partners of SpeQtral
  • Other related functions as assigned

Technical skills – must have
