Position: Quantum Research Software Engineer
Aliro spun out of Harvard’s Quantum Information Technology lab in 2019. Our co-founder and CTO is Prof. Prineha Narang, who is well-known in the QIT field. Aliro is developing some foundational technologies in Quantum Networking and Communications. Applications include highly secure communications, improved deep space communications, satellite sensor networks, and more. We recently won two grants from the U.S. Air Force for research in related topics. We are hiring a Research Engineer, Quantum Networks & Communications who is passionate about doing pioneering work and building new software in this emerging branch of the quantum revolution. In this position, you will not only develop new techniques, but will also implement them in our stack and product offerings. You will also work closely with the rest of the research team in developing new ideas and clever approaches to some of the hardest problems facing quantum networking and computing today.
What you’ll do:
Leverage physics knowledge, software engineering skills and creative thinking to develop novel quantum networking software solutions
Define concrete problems in an abstract and emerging area of research, come up with creative solutions, and implement them in the existing code stack
Bachelor’s degree in Physics, EE, CS, Math or a related field
At least 2 years of experience programming in popular programming languages (Python/Java/C++/etc.)
Ability to break down abstract problems into small iterable parts
Good communication skills
Graduate degree in Physics, EE, CS, Math or a related field with a focus on photonics
Publications in a related field
Quantum networking experience or training, particularly in the photonic realm
2 openings. Telecommuting is allowed.
About Aliro Quantum Technologies
Aliro is a one-year old VC-backed start-up focusing on bringing quantum computing to individuals, institutions and enterprises. We are creating a platform to make it easy to design quantum circuits, visualize them, optimize and compile them, and then run them on any of the devices accessible from our portal. We target all the available quantum device technologies, adding unique value to each through our noise-aware optimizations and user-tailored execution parameter settings.
We are currently 10+ employees, dedicated to bringing quantum technology within reach of anyone who wants to explore it. We are expanding both our research and software development teams. We offer standard benefits, including health insurance, paid time-off, 401(k), and provide a collegial work environment where your deep thinking and creativity are encouraged.
