Position: Research Engineer, Quantum Networks & Communications

Aliro spun out of Harvard’s Quantum Information Technology lab in 2019.  Our co-founder and CTO is Prof. Prineha Narang, who is well-known in the QIT field.  Aliro is developing some foundational technologies in Quantum Networking and Communications.  Applications include highly secure communications, improved deep space communications, satellite sensor networks, and more.  We recently won two grants from the U.S. Air Force for research in related topics.  We are hiring a Research Engineer, Quantum Networks & Communications who is passionate about doing pioneering work and building new software in this emerging branch of the quantum revolution.  In this position, you will not only develop new techniques, but will also implement them in our stack and product offerings.  You will also work closely with the rest of the research team in developing new ideas and clever approaches to some of the hardest problems facing quantum networking and computing today.

What you’ll do:

  • Leverage physics knowledge, software engineering skills and creative thinking to develop novel quantum networking software solutions
  • Define concrete problems in an abstract and emerging area of research, come up with creative solutions, and implement them in the existing code stack

Required background:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Physics, EE, CS, Math, or a related field
  • At least 2 years of experience programming in popular programming languages (Python/Java/C++/etc.)
  • Ability to break down abstract problems into small iterable parts
  • Good communication skills

Preferred background:

  • Graduate degree in Physics, EE, CS, Math, or a related field with a focus on photonics
  • Publications in a related field

Bonus background:

  • Quantum networking experience or training, particularly in the photonic realm
