Quantum Application Developer (m/f/d)

As Quantum App­li­ca­ti­on Deve­lo­per, you will com­mu­ni­ca­te with our cus­to­mers to find solu­ti­ons on our pho­to­nic quantum com­pu­ting plat­form for their needs in mathe­ma­ti­cal opti­miz­a­ti­on. You will under­stand their com­bi­na­to­ri­al opti­miz­a­ti­on chal­len­ges and refor­mu­la­te the pro­blem such that it can be addres­sed with algo­rith­ms of our quantum com­pu­ting soft­ware stack. In your working flow, you will clo­se­ly col­la­bo­ra­te with our quantum soft­ware and quantum algo­rith­ms team to under­stand the cur­rent and future capa­bi­li­ties and limits of our quantum com­pu­ting stack. 

Loca­ti­on: Stuttgart 

A com­ple­te app­li­ca­ti­on con­sists of a cover let­ter (moti­va­ti­on, max. one page), a CV and your diplomas.

Your tasks

  • Enga­ge in con­ta­ct with exis­ting cus­to­mers and estab­lish new ones with the goal of detail­ing out the pain point they face with regard to opti­miz­a­ti­on tasks 
  • Take the cus­to­mer view­point in col­la­bo­ra­ting clo­se­ly with our quantum algo­rithm & soft­ware team to map com­bi­na­to­ri­al opti­miz­a­ti­on pro­blems to near-term pho­to­nic quantum algorithms 
  • Estab­lish solu­ti­on frame­works for dif­fe­rent clas­ses of indus­tri­al­ly rele­vant use cases that can be tack­led with com­bi­na­to­ri­al opti­miz­a­ti­on techniques 
  • Com­bi­ne an open, crea­ti­ve mind with entre­pre­neu­ri­al thin­king to bring in new ide­as and initiatives 

Your profile

  • Mas­ter’s degree or PhD in mathe­ma­tics, com­pu­ter sci­ence, phy­sics or a rela­ted field 
  • Expe­ri­ence in indus­try-rele­vant mathe­ma­ti­cal and com­bi­na­to­ri­al opti­miz­a­ti­on algo­rith­ms, tech­ni­ques, soft­ware, and approaches 
  • Hands-on expe­ri­ence in a scrip­ting lan­guage like Python 
  • Good com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on skills 
  • Gene­ral inte­rest in quantum com­pu­ting and in working with our quantum experts; exis­ting know­ledge or expe­ri­ence with quantum pro­gramming lan­guages and SDKs is a plus 
  • Inter­nal dri­ve to work on new topics and to learn new skills 
  • Good lan­guage skills in Ger­man and English 

Your benefits

  • In our team-oriented working atmo­s­phe­re, you have fle­xi­ble opti­ons for working hours and can thus com­bi­ne your job and free time in the best pos­si­ble way. 
  • The inter­disciplinary team sup­ports you in your pro­fes­sio­nal and per­so­nal fur­ther education. 
  • Insight into the development of high-tech products.
