Job Description

Please note I have direct access to the Hiring VP of Engineering on this position.

Come work for a bleeding edge start up that is building the next generation computer that is changing modern computing as we know it. The company easily secured its Seed and A round of funding.

The Sr. Python Developer will join a highly diverse and interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers working at the cutting edge of technology in a mission-driven entrepreneurial environment. The company is bringing together teams from various cultures, educational backgrounds, and technical disciplines that help them to see things from more points of view and to make great products that change the world for the better.

The Company is developing cloud-deployed quantum computers to solve humanity's most pressing and valuable problems. As a software engineer in control systems, you’ll build the bedrock software layers that make quantum computing possible. This software runs the autonomous nervous system that calibrates and operates the company’s technology. You should be comfortable around RF and DC hardware, and interested in building robust software systems to support their use in both laboratory and production environments.

Desired Skills & Experience

  • Extensive programming skills, ideally in C and Python, and a track record of translating ideas into prototypes quickly
  • Experience developing drivers in the Linux kernel (kernel patches a huge plus)
  • Excellent knowledge of API design in ISO C (opaque types, state management, modularity, ...), knowledge of writing effective C-language bindings
  • Experience working with standard lab equipment (oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, ...) and working with hardware engineers on debugging problems
  • Practical knowledge of circuits (circuit laws, ...), control systems (stability analysis, s-domain, ...), and signal processing (frequency domain, impulse response, ...)
  • History of high impact product focused work.


  • Knowledge of quantum computing and quantum circuits (note that this is *not* a hard pre-requisite)
  • Experience working with FPGAs (especially hybrid FPGA/CPU designs), DSPs, GPUs, or other specialized computing environments
  • Experience with virtual instrument software (VISA, IVI, etc.)

The Sr. Python Developer reports to the VP of Engineering

The company offers full benefits (PPO & HMO) including dental and vision (all free to single employees), matching 401K, 4 weeks of vacation, 8 paid sick/personal days, Short and Long Term Disability, Life Insurance, Employee Assistance Program, Wellness Programs, extremely casual dress and flexible work hours that all start upon employment.
