Parity Quantum Computing GmbH
ParityQC, a quantum architecture company, introduces a new paradigm on how to build scalable and fully programmable quantum computers to solve optimization problems. The company develops blueprints (instruction set and chip layout) for quantum computers as well as the appertaining operating system called ParityOS. The architecture provides unique advantages for all currently available hardware platforms and methods (digital/analog).

Quantum Hardware Theorist

Parity Quantum Computing GmbH

(Hamburg, Full time, m/w/x)

What we do

ParityQC is the world’s only Quantum Architecture Company. We have developed a fundamentally new way of solving industry-relevant problems on quantum computers. We develop blueprints for quantum computers and the associated operating system – ParityOS.

About the job

We are looking for a Quantum Hardware Theorist who will join our team of Quantum Scientists creating next generation quantum computers. The role involves mainly the theoretical modelling and simulation of trapped ions and atoms based QC and the co-designing of algorithms specifically adapted to these hardware platforms using the ParityQC architecture. We are developing ParityOS, a toolchain of software that translates optimization problems from its raw mathematical formulation to a complete quantum program, which is specifically customized for the underlying hardware platform.

Your tasks

As a Quantum Hardware Theorist, you will theoretically model the QC hardware and develop pioneering algorithms specifically co-designed to run on near-term quantum devices. You will utilize the specific advantages of trapped ions and neutral atoms based quantum computers to design performant algorithms and to propose the experimental realization of improved qubit gates. This co-development of hardware and software requires both a profound theoretical knowledge of quantum information theory, as well as a deep understanding of the specific qubit platforms. Your tasks involve creating innovative techniques and strategies to tackle optimization problems in the Parity Architecture for trapped ions and atoms based hardware platforms.

What we offer

We are a spin-off working in one of the most exciting emerging technology fields. There are no long-time proven concepts on what we are doing – we need to invent everything from scratch, and we are therefore able to shape a whole new generation of computing. ParityOS is the first fully cloud-based operating system for quantum computers. We are pioneers in this field and develop the blueprints for the upcoming generations. Thus, the position also allows to conduct research and publish in peer-reviewed journals. Altogether we offer:
