Job Description

QuEra Computing is seeking a creative DevOps Engineer who will be a key collaborator in our efforts to launch the first publicly-accessible neutral-atom quantum computer.

About us

QuEra Computing is a world-class team of physicists, engineers, and entrepreneurs focused on the challenges of designing, building, and evolving a quantum computing service in collaboration with pioneering researchers at Harvard and MIT.

We are committed to harnessing the unique programmability and qubit-scaling advantages of the neutral-atom platform in order to achieve useful quantum advantage across a range of disciplines, applications, and customers.

To bring this new technology and programming model from the lab to the the world requires us to grow the depth and breadth of our collective skills and expertise.

About you

You are passionate about collaborating with an interdisciplinary team to design, implement, and refine automated pipelines that enable development teams to iterate efficiently and deliver high-quality custom software components.

You are not satisfied with mediocre cookie-cutter approaches. You thrive when challenged to step outside the familiar to design solutions that are tailored to user needs.

Your are eager to apply your strong experience with containerization, orchestration, public/private cloud, and event-driven system architecture to help us create a system with the reliability and flexibility that will enable us to operate and evolve QuEra's publicly-accessible quantum computing service.

You demonstrate the ethos of continuous improvement in your eagerness to discuss and apply lessons learned from successes and failures, past and present.

How to apply

Please submit a copy of your resume or CV and highlight how specific examples from your experience demonstrate:

  • How you collaborate with colleagues across diverse disciplines to design and evolve the pipelines and processes that facilitate development of high-quality custom software and systems.
  • The technical expertise relevant for deploying systems that span from an on-premises data center to VPC, including: infrastructure as code, pipelines for compiled and interpreted languages (especially C/C++, Kotlin, Julia, Python), deployment and monitoring of containerized and bare-metal workloads.
  • The engineering practices you employ to improve software development productivity, ensure system reliability/recoverability, minimize downtime deploys, maintain system security, and protect user data privacy.
  • How you have taken on the challenges inherent in a commitment to continuous improvement.

Also let us know:

  • Are you currently located in the Boston, MA area or willing to relocate?
  • Are you currently authorized to work in the US? Do you now, or will you need sponsorship in the future?


Principals only, please.
