We believe quantum computing will change everything. It will have the power to transform the foundations of giant industries that rely on intensive computation. PsiQuantum is on a mission to build the world’s first useful quantum computer, capable of delivering these transformative results. We know that means it will need 1 million qubits, error correction, a scalable architecture and a data center footprint.

By harnessing the laws of quantum physics, quantum computers can provide exponential performance increases over today’s most powerful supercomputers, offering the potential for extraordinary advances across a broad range of industries including climate, energy, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, finance, agriculture, transportation, materials design, and many more.

PsiQuantum is uniquely positioned to deliver on the promise of quantum computing years earlier than our competitors. Our architecture is based on photonics which gives us the ability to produce our components using existing high-volume semiconductor manufacturing processes, the same processes that are today producing billions of chips for telecom and consumer electronics applications. Since photons don’t feel heat, we can take advantage of existing cryogenic cooling systems, the kind that have been operating at facilities like the Stanford Linear Accelerator (SLAC). And because photons are in fact light, they can move between subsystems at tremendous speed using standard fiber connectivity.

Our team is building a utility scale quantum computer and the software tools needed to build fault tolerant quantum applications. We’re a highly motivated and collaborative group focused on a singular goal - building the world’s first useful quantum computer on the fastest path possible.

There’s much more work to be done and we are looking for exceptional talent to join us on this extraordinary journey!

Job Summary:

The Quantum Solutions Associate should support Quantum Solutions Managers across all of their duties (use case/strategic/GTM/client facing work) and own and drive such tasks themselves.

Client-facing Quantum Project Owner (QPO) work: E.g., own and lead project management for client projects in partnership with a technical lead (for example, a client project could be developing quantum algorithms for a specific use case). We strive to adhere to project charters and achieve valuable results for our clients’ businesses while building a strong and collaborative relationship with these clients. As Quantum Project Owner, the success of these projects is the responsibility of you and the technical lead. Such tasks require close collaboration with colleagues from the Applications and client teams.

Use case work: E.g., take ownership of one specific/or class of use cases and develop a perspective on (1) potential quantum advantages (2) financial/business impact (3) relevant clients (4) feasibility (5) potential monetization strategies etc. Such tasks require close collaboration PsiQuantum’s Applications, Business Development, and Solutions Teams. Besides internal collaboration, these tasks may require build-up of external partnerships and collaborations on the topic, e.g., in academia.

Strategic work: E.g., work on and own GTM, pricing, fundraising, vertical integration, org and other strategic priorities. These tasks may entail working with a wide range of teams and colleagues, including our C-level and founders.

Experience/Qualifications:

  • Technical degree(s) preferred (e.g., physics, mathematics, engineering, chemistry, computer science).
  • 1.5-3 years full-time experience in a high-pace environment such as management consulting, investment banking, VC or start-up.
  • Knowledge of the chemical processes underpinning these technologies’ efficiencies and cost drivers is a plus.
  • PowerPoint, Excel modeling, presentation/public speaking, industry research.
