Frontend Engineer, Quantum Computing

Job ID: 1642737 | Amazon Dev Center U.S., Inc.


Interested in being part of a team that’s pushing the bounds of what’s possible with computing?

The AWS Center for Quantum Computing (CQC) is looking for a Frontend Engineer to join our growing software engineering team. You will build user interfaces to enable experimental physics research. As the first frontend engineer on this team all your projects will be greenfield projects. You will start by collecting requirements from our internal physicist customers and work to meet their needs through custom UIs, dashboards, and data visualizations.

Potential projects may include:
· Building a web app that allow experimental physicists to find, visualize, and analyze data
· Creating a dashboard for viewing the status of our systems
· Prioritizing feature requests from physicist users of the software
· Mentoring non-software developers to actively contribute to the codebase
· Collaborating with others to tell stories through data visualization
On the AWS CQC software team we value people with a genuine curiosity towards new technologies. Prior experience with quantum computing is not a prerequisite for this role.

Work/Life Balance
At the AWS CQC, we understand that developing quantum computing technology is a marathon, not a sprint. Mental and physical wellness is encouraged within our team and throughout AWS. The work/life integration within Amazon encourages a culture where employees work hard and have ownership over their downtime. We are exploring more structured wellness elements including meditation scheduling, running group meet-ups, and a culture of sharing wellness tips.

Mentorship and Career Growth
We are committed to the growth and development of every member of the Center for Quantum Computing. You will receive career-growth-minded management and mentorship from a software and science team and also have the opportunity to participate in Amazon's mentorship programs. You will work closely with quantum research scientists and have opportunities to learn about quantum computing technology and contribute to the development of scientific software for quantum computing at AWS.

Inclusive and Diverse Culture
Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and we host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon’s culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.
