Job summary

Interested in being part of a team that’s pushing the bounds of what’s possible with quantum technology?

We are looking for a candidate with substantial hands-on laboratory experience to lead the operation of a state-of-the-art quantum technology laboratory. On this team you will wear many hats, work smart, and iterate quickly.

This role requires an individual who can balance working and communicating with multiple stakeholders including internal teams such as engineers, safety, contractors and IT. You will also work closely with our physics team to understand and implement the scientific and technical needs of the quantum laboratory. We’re looking for someone who can define a vision for a technical and business opportunity and then execute on that vision. Successful applicants will have experience defining problems, leading cross-functional teams, and communicating with a large number of stakeholders, including written and oral communications with senior executives.

Work/Life Balance

We understand that developing quantum technology is a marathon, not a sprint. Mental and physical wellness is encouraged within our team and throughout AWS. The work/life integration within Amazon encourages a culture where employees work hard and have ownership over their downtime. We are exploring more structured wellness elements including meditation scheduling, running group meet-ups, and a culture of sharing wellness tips.

Mentorship and Career Growth

We are committed to the growth and development of every member of our team. You will receive career-growth-minded management and mentorship from a software and science team and also have the opportunity to participate in Amazon's mentorship programs. You will work closely with quantum research scientists and have opportunities to learn about quantum technology and contribute to the development of scientific software for quantum information systems at AWS.

Inclusive and Diverse Culture

Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and we host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon’s culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.
