Quantum Compiler Developer

We are looking for a Quantum Compiler Developer who will join our team of Quantum Engineers and Physicists creating next-generation quantum computers. The role involves mainly the development of algorithms and implementation of features to compile optimization problems to various types of quantum hardware making use of the ParityQC architecture. The compilation process involves taking as input an optimization problem defined in a specific way—think an integer linear program—and computing a circuit to be laid out in a specific pattern on a quantum chip. This is a hard computational problem and involves bringing many ideas together, for example linear algebra, randomized search algorithms, and heuristics. This quantum compiler is a central component of our software product ParityOS.

You will develop pioneering algorithms, joining us in designing and building a fully-featured and scalable software product. There will be many fascinating mathematical and algorithmic puzzles to solve. You will design and implement efficient solutions in a fresh codebase using modern, maintainable code. This will not only give you the chance to grow along with extremely talented, world-class team of experts, but also be fun.

Required Skills & Experience

  • PhD or MSc in a quantitative field (computer science, physics, mathematics)
  • Systems programming skills in Python and Modern C++ (including C++11, 14, 17)
  • Understanding of Algorithms and Data Structures
  • Linear algebra, linear coding theory, graph theory
  • High degree of creativity and pro-activeness
