Entangled Positions

Our Story

In 2013, the UK Government announced the £270m UK National Technologies Programme. Earlier that year saw the birth of Profecta Associates, which became the world’s first and only recruitment agency for quantum technologies

The quantum industry (in its current form) did not exist then, but John Barnes had a hunch, deciding to specialise and develop the skills required for the boom in quantum technologies that he felt was coming; and for which a global talent pool would be needed.

In 2021, Profecta Associates evolved into Entangled Positions, a pure play quantum recruitment organisation to deliver equitable, responsible and exceptional service to the emerging sector.

The premise was clear: ethics would be at the heart of everything we do to enable our global network (now numbering tens of thousands of individuals in over one hundred countries) the opportunity to play their part in the second quantum revolution.

A new breed of tech recruiters is being created, whose diverse backgrounds combines a myriad of talents specifically chosen for the nuances of a unique ecosystem.

We can truly say we’re proud to be different!
