Prepare to qualify ... for a career with Quantum Signal!

We're not new to engineering, and Quantum Signal isn't a startup.

Quantum Signal is a Limited Liability Company launched in 1999 by its co-founders, Dr. William J. Williams and Dr. Mitchell M. Rohde, as a spin-off of the University of Michigan College of Engineering. Long before Big Data and AI became the rage, they built Quantum Signal with the notion that creating and applying intelligent algorithms to extract useful information from noisy data could change the way many industries operate. And as the last twenty years have shown, they weren't wrong: the entire world has embraced algorithms and what they can do to make life better.

We work hard and we play hard, and it's paying off. Quantum Signal is always looking for highly motivated and intelligent individuals to be part of our growing team. All job positions are located at Quantum Signal HQ in Saline, MI. We offer a competitive salary with potential for bonuses, generous benefits, flexible hours, fun and relaxed environment, casual dress code, the opportunity to learn new technologies and work on really cool projects, and much more. Benefits include health, dental, short and long term disability, life, 401k, and more.

And if you like arcade games... you've come to the right place!

What is Our Quest?

To seek the Holy Grail. And to work with robots, obviously. But in all seriousness, our products have been developed to support the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, the Department of State, the US Secret Service and to propel autonomous vehicles forward (sometimes literally). Our simulation programs help to keep soldiers safe, and that makes us walk a little taller at the end of the day.

When Do We Have Fun?

Our corporate culture is all about inspiring that next big idea! Join an informal volleyball game in the gym for lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Talk over the latest project while playing Ping Pong. Enjoy a company lunch once a month, support community events, and best of all, vintage arcade game tournaments!

Where is Quantum Signal?

We're located in Saline, MI in the original Saline high school building. Downtown Saline is less than a block away with restaurants and small-town charm. Think Ann Arbor, but with on-site parking!

WE WORK THE FUTURE, BUT PLAY OLD-SCHOOL

Our game lounge and hallways are stocked with plenty of unique, fun arcade goodness from the 1930s through the 1990s. They don’t always work, but when they do it’s absolutely Back to the Future. Getting’ it on like Donkey Kong...

A HIDDEN GEM, A SECRET FACT

Salt Springs Brewery in Saline is a favorite amongst our staff, and located in an antique church. Few know that QS actually considered purchasing the building long before it was renovated into the awesome brewpub it is today. We are very happy things turned out the way they did – they make the beer at the Church of Hops, we do the engineering at the School of Code!

MAIZE AND BLUE

QS is a 1999 spin-off of the University of Michigan College of Engineering. Don’t worry, though – there’s no rivalry at Quantum. MSU fans and graduates are welcome, and we mostly try not to put their desks in the basement torture chamber. Mostly.

WE ARE ALWAYS UP FOR A CHALLENGE

QS fielded two outstanding teams at the most recent Saline Celtic Festival Mastodon Challenge! Is there’s any question as to whether we’re hard-core or not, consider this: Bill Meabrod, one of our esteemed coders, did it barefoot using his self-described “Hobbit Feet” on the entire mission.

GETTING IN THE SPIRIT

Each year QS hosts a Halloween costume contest, and few can resist to throw in their hat. At a recent one, CEO Mitch Rohde rocked his Tron costume – showing both his dorkiness and vintage all in one disturbing swoop! End of line.

CTRL + ALT + DELETE

Working out the kinks in vehicle teleoperation can be fun; from a safe distance of course!

BUMP. SET. SPIKE!

Weekly volleyball matches get pretty intense at Quantum Signal. The gym is regulation, the players not-so-much. It’s like the volleyball scene from Top Gun, minus the sand and plus the C++ experience level...

SAVING LIVES. SAVING FRIES.

QS doesn’t just keep soldiers safe – we’re also single-handedly responsible for the return of waffle fries at Dan's Downtown Tavern, one of our favorite lunch spots. Now, about those curly fries...

WE CELEBRATE THE VICTORIES

Sometimes it's a trip to Cedar Point, other times a t-shirt and BBQ lunch, and still other times an engineering-grade sheetcake. Don't worry, we make management eat the non-chocolate parts.

IT'S TIME FOR A DOUBLE BILL...

QS' co-founder, Dr. William J. Williams, is named after a famous figure in Scottish history. He is also a distant cousin of Bob Evans, of restaurant fame!

GOAT, MOOSE, SHEEP – INDIVIDUALS OR FLOCKS – WHATEVER YOU NEED...

QS has built a variety of virtual animals for M&S environments, including a friendly goat with an accurate gate and simulated hoof forces. Yes, we were contracted to do it. Yes, we will tell you the story if you buy us a beer...

A MASTER OF HIS CRAFT...

"What are you milling Kevin?" - "A girlfriend. She'll be perfect."

AND WE SMILE A LOT MORE, TOO!

Back in 1931, this facility housed the finest Saline athletes. Today, it houses the finest Saline MATHLETES!

SEEING OBSTACLES, AND EATING THEM

James Walker, our in-house Robot Whisperer, once emerged victorious from a Wendy’s "Meat Cube" challenge. Hard-core coding, hard core burger consumption – that’s the QS way.

OUR QA THINKS, AND THUS IS...

Dan Rice, QS Quality Assurance Maestro and all around cool dude, majored in philosophy and once wrote a paper on Aristotle's Philosophy of Mind! His tickets are more Socrates than Nietzsche, though.

QS: WHERE ROBOTS ARE LIKE FAMILY

We figure being nice to the 'bots now will help ingratiate us with our future robot overlords.

ALWAYS READY TO RUMBLE

In 2014/2015 QS built and released a little game called "Rustbucket Rumble" – a casual multi-robot mash-em-up craze-fest. It had a fanbase, but didn’t make it big enough to warrant a sequel. Still, we miss those little critters...

SOMETIMES, YOU GET TAGGED

We'll assume this was a comment on the political situation and not our codebase….
