About the job
Google Quantum AI is advancing quantum computing by developing quantum processors and algorithms to help researchers and developers solve near-term problems both theoretical and practical. We think quantum computing will help us develop the innovations of tomorrow, including AI. That’s why we’re committed to building dedicated quantum hardware and software today. Quantum computing is a new paradigm that will play a big role in accelerating tasks for AI. We want to offer researchers and developers access to open source frameworks and computing power that can operate beyond classical capabilities.
As Director, Research Scientist, Quantum Hardware you will be a leader within the Quantum AI team to execute on an ambitious strategy to achieve project milestones. The Quantum AI team’s mission is to make useful quantum computing available to the world to enable humankind to solve problems that would otherwise be impossible to surmount. We’re executing against an ambitious but technically feasible roadmap to build a quantum computer with 1000 logical qubits before the end of the decade. We’re currently working on Milestone 2 where we will demonstrate that quantum error correction works in principle and that logical error rate can be reduced by distributing quantum information over larger grids of physical qubits. Milestone 3 consists of fabricating a logical qubit that stays coherent during billions of operations. We hope to reach the final Milestone 6, a fault tolerant quantum computer with a million physical qubits, before the decade ends. You will have state-of-the-art facilities at your disposal including a newly constructed cleanroom.
Research happens at Google everyday, on many different embedded teams throughout the company. Our research reaches the user through both services and products such as Search, Maps, Google Assistant, Google Translate, Google Cloud and our computing, storage, and networking infrastructure. To achieve this, we’re working on a wide variety of projects that utilize the latest state-of-the-art technologies that push the boundaries of what is possible.
Lead fast growing teams of quantum hardware engineers to pursue an ambitious roadmap to build a quantum computer.
Manage the collaboration between the hardware team and other teams of the Quantum AI project such as those responsible for operating Google’s quantum computing service, modeling and characterizing our devices, and groups that develop quantum algorithms.
Work closely with senior leadership of the Quantum AI project in communicating the goals and progress of the effort to Google’s executive leadership and shareholders as well as to customers, academic collaborators and the interested public.
Engage in broader strategy and execution discussions in the Research Organization, providing input from your program experiences to enhance our priorities across the board.
Build a collaborative, high performing, cross-functional team, with clarity of purpose, executing against a coherent strategy across all programs and initiatives.
