IonQ is developing the world's first fully-expressive, full-stack quantum computer based on trapped ion technology. We are pushing past the limits of classical physics and current super computing technology to unlock the staggering potential of the quantum realm. Quantum computing is poised to reshape medicine, materials, simulation, and much more.
Located down the street from the University of Maryland, IonQ is conveniently located within walking distance from the Metro rail, which is a quick trip to Washington, DC. Our office is a bright and open workspace, in a fun, fast-paced, and exciting environment, where we value each other’s unique qualities.
Design analog and digital hardware solutions for our trapped ion quantum computer control systems. Provide technical leadership in the development of high performance board and system level assemblies - from concept to production. Perform top level requirements definition, system specification, block and component level design and analysis.
