About the job

The Quantum team's mission is to make useful quantum computing tools available to the world to enable humankind to solve problems that would otherwise be impossible. Google AI Quantum is building novel systems that can leverage quantum mechanics to outperform the world's largest computers at certain classes of problems. Quantum computers will leverage the laws of quantum mechanics to solve some previously intractable problems, but they also require a lot of non-quantum engineering to build a complete system.

As a software engineer in the Google AI Quantum group, you'll work closely with other engineers and researchers at the forefront of quantum computing. The QuantumOS team builds software for operating quantum computers, and for running experiments and managing data in the quantum hardware lab.

As a software engineer focusing on QKernel, you will help to build the operating system that translates abstract descriptions of quantum programs into low-level instructions and runs them on quantum hardware. You will build high-performance systems to interface with custom hardware and support ongoing research and experiments of physicists and engineers in the group.


  • Develop full-stack control software for a quantum computer, from user-facing code for describing quantum algorithms, to hardware interface code for custom FPGA control hardware.
  • Collaborate with researchers and engineers to design and implement software tools for quantum computing experiments.
  • Develop scalable, reliable, maintainable, and extensible software solutions for solving cutting-edge research problems.
  • Develop drivers for custom control electronics for quantum hardware.
