IBM Quantum leads the world in quantum computing. We aim to solve complex problems the world’s most powerful supercomputers cannot solve, and never will. We are advancing quantum computing technology, hardware, and software, while exploring applications to make quantum broadly usable and accessible. With a worldwide network of Fortune 500 companies, academic institutions, researchers, educators, and enthusiasts, we are committed to driving innovation for our clients, our partners, and the open source Qiskit community. IBM Quantum is building an equitable, diverse, and inclusive global quantum computing ecosystem.
Your Role and Responsibilities
Come build the future of quantum with us. As a software developer with IBM Quantum, your job will be to write code for the suite of quantum software tools and cloud services that are part of our full-stack approach to delivering IBM’s quantum computing systems to quantum application developers and research scientists. Areas of software development include quantum machine learning, quantum biology and health informatics, quantum algorithms for chemistry, quantum simulations, quantum optimization, quantum software architecture, cloud microservices, and cloud APIs (among other areas).
Please note candidates must be registered in an undergraduate program in order to be eligible for this internship. International students are eligible to apply.
Students enrolled in a graduate program may apply to the Quantum & Qiskit Developer Summer Intern (Master’s/PhD): 2022 job requisite.
