Careers
Create quantum software

Team working on whiteboard

Riverlane is a research-led start-up that builds ground-breaking algorithms and software to unleash the predictive power of quantum computing.

We work with visionary chemical, pharmaceuticals and materials companies to develop billion-dollar applications using quantum advantage.

Our cross-disciplinary team of world-leading researchers is based in the heart of Cambridge, UK. Riverlane has experts in mathematics, computer science, chemistry, materials science, physics and quantum computing. Together we are growing fast and need smart people to join our friendly team. If you relish technical challenges and want to help develop ground-breaking quantum software as part of our collaborative team, we’d love to hear from you. Take a look at our job opportunities below.

Internships

Our full-time internships are designed to enable current students in a quantitative field to translate their skills and expertise into an industrial setting. You will join us at our office in Cambridge, UK, where you will have the opportunity to work alongside our team of software developers, mathematicians, quantum information theorists, computational chemists and computational physicists – all experts in their fields. Every intern will have a dedicated supervisor and will work on a project designed to make the best use of their background and skills whilst developing their knowledge of quantum computing. We will support all interns to try and produce a concrete output by the end of the internship e.g. a paper, product, or software tool.

Riverlane offer two internship schemes, one aimed at undergraduate and master’s students, and another aimed at PhD students. Both schemes are currently closed. The PhD internship scheme will re-open in Autumn 2020. Our undergraduate and Master’s scheme, which runs every summer, will be open for applications in January 2021.
