1QBit is dedicated to solving the world’s most intractable challenges by recasting problems to harness the power of quantum computing. We identify demanding industry problems and apply breakthroughs in computation to machine intelligence and optimization science to build software that allows applications to continually benefit from advances in both quantum and classical hardware.
We believe that quantum technologies will form the next pillar of computational progress. We research, benchmark, and build software development kits, online platforms, and applications that make the power of quantum computers accessible to researchers, developers, and industry-leading organizations so they can solve their most difficult problems in fields such as optimization, simulation, and machine learning.
As an interdisciplinary team of world-class mathematicians, physicists, engineers, operations research scientists, software developers, and quantum computing experts, we share a curiosity and drive to uncover new ways of solving currently intractable problems using advanced classical and quantum systems.
Our work is guided by a shared set of values focused on five fundamental principles:
As a member of our Quantum Computing Team, you will work in collaboration with other researchers and software developers and utilize your theoretical chemistry and scientific programming experience to contribute to developing new hybrid algorithms for leveraging near-term quantum computing platforms for quantum chemistry simulations and its applications in advanced materials science and life sciences. We are recruiting two fixed-term (four months) positions with the possibility of extension and/or a permanent role.
In addition to a significant research component, this position also focuses on prototyping, developing, testing and validating new ideas using object-oriented languages such as C++ and python, and following good practices in continuous delivery, documentation, and testing. You will also have the opportunity to acquire further experience in high-performance computing and take part in our client engagements.
As part of this role, you will have the opportunity to be one of the pioneering scientists experimenting with emerging, cutting-edge quantum computing hardware or simulation frameworks available through our partnerships with leading manufacturers in the field such as Microsoft, IBM, and Rigetti. You will collaborate with a world-class team of quantum physicists, quantum chemists, computer scientists, HPC software developers, and operations researchers. You will also have the opportunity to work with some of our largest S&P 100 industry partners such as Dow Chemical to explore the applications of emerging computing platforms in their business.
“Why 1QBit?”, you might ask… Well, as the first company dedicated to the development of quantum computing software, we are defining and transforming how the industry evolves.
If being a pioneer is not enough, you will also have the opportunity to work on some of the world’s most challenging computational problems in the areas of machine learning, optimization, and simulation.
What You’ll Do
What You’ll Bring

Not a must, but nice to have:
Who You Are
You share our belief that principles, not policies, enable individuals and teams to apply their unique lens in making decisions. Like all 1QBit team members, you thrive in our flat hierarchy of empowered individuals. You embrace the rigorous examination of the thoughts and work of diverse minds from multiple disciplines because you know it uncovers deeper insights and produces robust results. You believe there is no failure in exploration because new breakthroughs often require rigorous examination of multiple paths before a conclusion is reached. You have a desire to apply yourself to purposeful work that is inspiring, meaningful, and fun, to create value for the world by advancing the ability to solve complex problems. You have a relentless curiosity for exploring new methodologies and you have an intrinsic drive to architect the foundation of the quantum ecosystem because you love the challenges and understand the rewards that the next paradigm of computation will bring.
