Job Description:

D-Wave is looking for exceptionally motivated people who love to see the impact of their work on a daily basis, who are driven to ensure the success of the company, and who want to be a part of something special.  We are working to radically change what is possible with computers and are leading the effort to commercialize quantum computing.
D-Wave’s systems are multi-disciplinary in nature spanning physics, mechanical engineering, cryogenics engineering, low noise analog and digital electronics, conventional computer networking, and a low magnetic field environment.  The company's flagship product, the D-Wave 2X, is built around a novel superconducting quantum processor designed to exploit quantum resources known to offer large computational speedups on some problems. The D-Wave adiabatic quantum computer is able to sample from probability distributions and optimize functions that are computationally intractable using classical hardware.  D-Wave Systems are currently being used by customers such as Lockheed, NASA and Google and Los Alamos Notational Lab.  D-Wave has appeared in Time Magazine, MIT Technology Review, Forbes, INC Magazine and Wired.
