Reinforcement Learning Scientist At 1QBit

Location: Vancouver, British Columbia

Job Description

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, quantum computing experts, and business leaders, we share a curiosity and drive to uncover new ways of solving currently intractable problems.

Our work is guided by a shared set of values focused on five fundamental principles:

  • Audacity – A drive to pioneer and apply new methods. To dream without limit and then do the hard work of bringing your ideas into reality.
  • Open Thinking – A belief in the sharing of ideas. To approach each exploration with a receptive mindset and collaborate openly to produce the best possible results.
  • Interdisciplinary Collaboration – A respect for the diversity of people, backgrounds, and skills. A wide range of perspectives reveals a more complete landscape and yields deeper insights.
  • Ownership – A feeling of pride in the work of the team and a deep sense of purpose and accomplishment from your contribution.
  • Beginner’s Mindset – A desire to improve as an expert while retaining the curiosity and openness that inspired you to begin.

Your Role

As a member of our R&D Team, you will work with people from across multiple disciplines, utilizing your background in reinforcement learning to address a wide range of the world’s most challenging computational problems. You will have the opportunity to work with computer scientists, quantum information scientists, and physicists experimenting with the world’s most advanced quantum computing hardware prototypes to develop novel quantum algorithms for revolutionary artificial intelligence applications using the emerging paradigms of quantum computation. At the core of this role, you will have the opportunity to invent, design, implement, and analyze hybrid quantum–classical algorithms in reinforcement learning.

You will use your creativity to tackle the bottlenecks of artificial intelligence. You will use your experience in scientific research for experimental implementations, rapid prototyping, and deployment of powerful computational solutions. Towards this end, you will leverage the scale of 1QBit’s proprietary data and software infrastructure in conjunction with commercial tools and exotic hardware prototypes.

What You'll Bring

Members of our team bring a confluence of personality, skills, and intent that contributes to their individual development and our collective growth as an organization. The knowledge and mindset you will bring to our team include the following:

  • A PhD in either mathematics, computer science, statistics, or physics, specializing in one or more of the following fields:
    • Machine learning
    • Deep learning
    • Reinforcement learning
    • Deep reinforcement learning
    • Stochastic control
    • Dynamic programming
    • Optimization theory
  • A solid understanding of, and previous experience in, deep learning and reinforcement learning
  • A strong track record in research demonstrated by your peer reviewed publications, presentations, open source contributions (e.g., on GitHub), or other relevant indicators of a strong portfolio for a scientist in ML and AI
  • Working experience in:
    • Programming languages: Python and/or C/C++
    • Machine learning development kits: TensorFlow, etc.
    • Hyperparameter tuning
    • Designing numerical experiments
    • Performing careful benchmarking
    • Writing scientific papers
  • An eagerness to interact with a multidisciplinary team working on quantum information, computational physics, and quantum computation
  • The ability to conduct research in an interdisciplinary environment, as well as independently
  • Self-motivation and the ability to take initiative and follow through reliably
  • A drive to proactively seek out opportunities to help move projects forward and contribute to their improvement
  • An openness to soliciting feedback to improve your performance and, in turn, continually providing input to team members to elevate team performance and contribute to 1QBit’s culture
  • An eagerness to learn about new trends, tools, and technologies, and to continually consider how these will influence our projects and the implications and opportunities that they will bring
  • A dedication to maintaining team unity and effectiveness through the sharing of information and expertise, and striving for team success
  • A commitment to challenge the status quo, take smart risks, and be open to possible failure

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.
