Q-CTRL is a new business (five months young) funded by Horizons Ventures and Main Sequence Ventures - The CSIRO Innovation Fund. Q-CTRL is based on campus at The University of Sydney and housed in the Sydney Nanoscience Hub - one of the most advanced research and teaching facilities globally in the field of nanoscience.
Q-CTRL builds software that improves the quality of quantum systems for quantum computing and a range of other technical applications in medicine, industrial chemistry and defense. The platform enables users to deploy the most effective techniques from “quantum control” to suppress errors in quantum hardware, combining modern full-stack product engineering with state-of-the-art quantum control algorithms.
About the Role
The main responsibility of this role is the development of the Q-CTRL HTTP API which powers all Q-CTRL products/front-ends. Ideally, we're looking for a Senior/Lead level developer who can come in and own the API and contribute at a high-level in technical conversations and decision-making. However, if you're a Mid and think you have what it takes, please apply! You don't need to be a Quantum Physicist (we have plenty of those), although you will learn a lot about quantum systems in this role. You really just need to be endlessly curious, have a great head for modelling and architecture, and be a joy to work with. And because the the tech is not too far in a certain direction, it's not too late to come in and steer it in a new direction if you think it would make a positive impact. For example, the API is currently a Django app on GCP, but you might think a serverless architecture on AWS is the way to go.
