IonQ’s software engineers are developing the world’s first full-stack universal quantum computer based on ion traps. These computers are poised to unlock the staggering potential of the quantum realm and help remake industries like medicine, materials science, simulation, finance, strong A.I., machine learning, cryptography, high-performance supercomputing, and more.
We're looking for engineers who bring fresh ideas from all areas, including distributed computing, embedded systems, large-scale system design, networking and data storage, security, artificial intelligence, scientific computing--the list goes on. As a software engineer, you’ll help build our next-generation quantum computer operating system, with opportunities to switch projects as you and our fast-paced business grow and evolve. We need our engineers to be versatile, display leadership qualities and be enthusiastic to take on new problems across the stack as we continue to push quantum technology forward.
IonQ reflects the globally diverse audience that our products and technology serve. We believe that in addition to hiring the best talent, a diversity of perspectives, ideas, and cultures leads to the creation of better products and services.
IonQ is and always will be an engineering company. We hire people with a broad set of technical skills who are ready to take on some of humanity’s greatest challenges and make an impact on millions, if not billions, of users.
Due to the pandemic, for the foreseeable future, you may work from anywhere. That said, there are advantages to living near our headquarters in College Park, Maryland due to our heavy interfacing with hardware.
