Quantum Ambassador (m/f/d)

As a Quantum Ambassador you will work as a highest-level community activist for very dedicated scientific, industrial and government communities, assuming an important role forming and driving our quantum strategy in North America. You will be expected to network and provide market information to the team to develop or enhance our photonic products and services while expanding our quantum community relationships. This position will also become a figurehead for our team within the US with the connection to the multiple quantum activities and centers.

This position is located at our headquarters in Rochester, New York.  The role will require regular travel within the U.S. and Europe, including extensive time in our Munich, Germany facility for in-depth familiarization with our technology and global quantum strategy.

Communication skills and teamwork are required in this highly challenging environment.

Initial a Quantum Ambassador responsibilities shall be:

  • Collaborate and interface with quantum initiatives in North America.
  • Summarize and align each quantum activity within North America with TOPTICA development.
  • In depth understanding of quantum applications in North America.
  • Present and promote TOPTICA activities at quantum related meetings and sessions.
  • Identify, participate and drive the interaction strategy related to all North American quantum centers and quantum market related activities.
  • Cultivate collaborative activities related to quantum outside of TOPTICA to include, but not limited to, research projects, white paper collaborations, etc.
  • Report market needs on quantum-optics solutions, based on customer communication and feedback to allow product development and enhancement to TOPTICA products.
  • Develop key relationships in North America leading to defining the laser related needs for quantum technologies which will translate into defining a North American quantum strategy for TOPTICA.
  • Establish a good and fruitful relationship with all employees of TOPTICA.


  • An understanding of the quantum ecosystem
  • An active background in quantum-optics technologies, ideally including several years of industrial experience or a well published peer reviewed academic background.

About the Company

TOPTICA is a privately held, technology driven visionary company, which develops and sells diode and ultrafast fiber lasers for scientific and industrial applications. The company sets its own annual challenge to continually present exciting product innovations and world firsts.

Since 1995, our lasers and laser-related measurement equipment have been dedicated to serving the forefront of atomic physics, metrology, microscopy, printing, optical disc manufacturing and many other applications.

Whenever lasers need to be matched with the latest scientific challenge, linewidth is measured in MHz and well below, or high speed locking circuitry is requested, TOPTICA lasers are the key to success. Whenever wavelengths are to be determined with an absolute precision of better than 10-7, beam wavefronts are given in mλ, or random pulse sequences and lengths are required in ns or even fs scale, TOPTICA lasers are involved.

Why should you be interested? Strong contacts to the scientific community and our profound understanding of their needs motivate us to push the development always one step further and that results in world-renowned diode and fiber lasers with cutting edge technology. We are looking for scientific experts who understand our technology and its potential for customers by matching the technology with their application requirements. Help us to continue to do so in the TOPTICA style of partnership with the customer on an individual level in the sales process as well.

We are looking for people who share the same passion for precision that keeps us excited and has resulted in over 20 years of commercial success in the scientific and industrial environment.

TOPTICA is a global, equal opportunity employer that supports diversity in the workplace. We offer a competitive salary and a comprehensive total benefits package.
