  • Advise SMEs and other content creators on conventions, advocating readability and consistency
  • Identify opportunities for improvement in documentation creation and publishing workflows
  • Perform other ad hoc writing and editing tasks as assigned

Project Themes

  • Exploring applications of quantum computing in computational quantum chemistry and materials science
  • Quantum and quantum-inspired optimization for intractable industry problems
  • Resource efficient design of an application-specific quantum processor and improved control on it
  • Exploring applications of machine learning and quantum computing in optimization, finance, and the healthcare industry

What You’ll Bring

Members of our team bring a confluence of personality, skills, and intent that contributes to their individual development and our collective growth as an organization. The knowledge and mindset you will bring to our team include the following:

  • An engineering, computer science, or science degree, or a degree from any STEM field would be preferred; or 2–3 years of experience in authoring customer-facing technical documents for a business audience;
