About Zurich Instruments
Zurich Instruments has revolutionized instrumentation in the DC to Megahertz, and soon the Gigahertz, range by combining frequency-domain tools and time-domain tools within single products. This reduces the complexity of laboratory setups, removes sources of problems and supports new measurement approaches that enable the progress of research.
Scientists and engineers at advanced research laboratories and in leading hi-tech organizations require powerful measurement instrumentation and tools for dynamic signal analysis. Zurich Instruments equipment allows for robust and reliable setups with best-in-class performance thanks to the unique integration of the latest electronic components. This is backed up by scientific staff with detailed application know-how and a customer support organization that is also second to none.
Incorporated in Zurich, Switzerland, as a spin-off from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich) in April 2008, Zurich Instruments launched its first HF2 product series in May 2009. Since then, the company has been growing its product portfolio and the offer now comprises lock-in amplifiers, arbitrary waveform generators, impedance analyzers, p...hase-locked loops and boxcar averagers. Zurich Instruments has also increased its engagement in the quantum world and offers the first commercial Quantum Computer Control System.
As a fast growing company, Zurich Instruments is always seeking additional talent to strengthen its R&D and operations. We offer a diverse work environment with an open, sporty company culture. People development forms the basis of our success where individual growth and a strong team spirit go hand in hand. Everybody is encouraged to take responsibility, take the initiative and lead the change in this highly innovative field. Work with ambitious peers who enjoy their individual freedoms and independence just as much as you do.
