HRL Laboratories is a private, scientific laboratory that has been in business since 1960. We are best known for having created the first working laser.
We are doing R&D on quantum computing, from fabrication to algorithms, all in-house, using a tech called exchange-only silicon dot qubits. We are looking for both senior engineering and management to help build out our compiler stack for a quantum programming language. We recently presented it, along with our language-oriented development approach, at the biggest physics conference: APS March Meeting. [1]
The quantum computing group uses Common Lisp, Coalton, Python, C++, and JavaScript to build a state-of-the-art operating system for physicists researching silicon dot quantum computers. Compiler development is done primarily in Common Lisp.
Those who are excellent programmers experienced with
- functional programming, and/or Lisp, and/or statically typed ML-descendants;
- compilers, machine architecture;
- and solid undergraduate mathematics and advanced computer science
are most qualified. We can train you on Lisp, Coalton, and quantum if the fundamentals are there. Knowledge of quantum computing is not necessary for most software engineering roles.
Interview process: phone call, "take-home" exercise, on-site interview (no whiteboarding), reference checks, and offer.
Candidates must be eligible to obtain and maintain a U.S. security clearance, and must be willing to relocate to southern California.
