Alice&Bob is taking up the challenge of building a Universal Quantum Computer, from the first building block to the whole machine. We are an ambitious team pursuing the dream of harnessing the computational power of quantum mechanics. Come and join us on this extraordinary quest!

The company is located in Paris, France. You will join Alice&Bob’s Quantum Software Team in order to develop from scratch the software environment of the first generation of Alice&Bob’s quantum processor.

As a Quantum Software Developer, your mission will be to upgrade the tools developed amongst the research laboratories to an industrial standard. You will work hand in hand with the experimental physicists building the quantum processor and develop new tools needed to control and design an ever more complex system.

If you are a tech explorator, craving to help shape the bios of tomorrow’s first universal quantum computer, come and join us !
