Job summary
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 manager to join our growing software team. You will work closely with our physics team to enable their work measuring novel quantum devices. You will also work cross-functionally with our fabrication and design teams to ensure they have access to the data they need.

We are looking for a manager who can:

  • Manage and develop 4-6 junior to senior engineers and grow and engage them on a day-to-day basis
  • Drive programs spanning engineering and science teams to deliver operational and performance improvements and capabilities to drive internal research and development
  • Work collaboratively with other teams to scope requirements and align responsibilities
  • Adapt to an unorthodox scientific/engineering environment

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.
