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. If the responsibilities and requirements of the position sound like a good fit for you, we encourage you to apply.
