About Us

​Cambridge, UK | Full-time | Permanent | Salary: DOE

Riverlane’s mission is to make quantum computing useful far sooner than previously imaginable, starting an era of human progress as significant as the industrial and digital revolutions. Large and reliable quantum computers have the potential to turn fields like clean energy, drug design and aerospace upside down. We’re building the Operating System for these pioneering new machines, leading the world to tackle quantum computing’s defining challenge: error correction. We’re growing fast and making remarkable progress.

About the role

You will play a key role in our strategy to build Riverlane’s brand as a global science, product and thought leader in quantum computing. The audiences you’ll focus on are media, stakeholders and the quantum computing industry itself. As an important company in an exciting but still emerging field the opportunity is enormous.

You don’t need to be a deep technology expert, but you’ll need to be comfortable in a deep tech environment. Your proven ability to turn complex technology into clear communications in both written and visual formats will be critical to your success. Equally important is helping us grow our network within the quantum community.  

As such, you’ll likely have relevant experience in other tech companies or via the worlds of journalism, PR, public policy or consulting.

What you will do

You’ll craft communications that cut through jargon and noise to drive growing positive awareness of Riverlane’s leadership in quantum computing generally and quantum error correction specifically. You’ll do this by:

 

  • Crafting messaging and stories for both deep tech and business audiences that make Riverlane’s work (across the whole industry) stand out in a sea of deep tech jargon at one extreme and quantum hype at the other
  • Work in partnership with our global PR agency
  • Generate compelling content, including blogs, press releases, video explainers, presentations and social posts
  • Helping us build and convene a growing community of followers and collaborators inside and outside our core industry
  • Staying abreast of Riverlane and industry developments
  • Maintain regular contact with our founder, C-suite, product managers and scientists
  • Be a key member of our cross-disciplinary marketing team

What we need

  • You need to be fascinated and excited by quantum computing. We’re not looking for a deep tech expert – we have plenty of those already. But you need to have some knowledge of the topic and proven experience as a talented tech or science communicator.
  • As such, you’re likely to have previous background in journalism; publishing; PR or marketing; public policy; or consulting 
  • Flair for (1) writing great copy (2) visual storytelling
  • A curious and ‘can do’ mindset
  • Creativity, passion and self-motivation

Even better if

  • You know the quantum computing industry well
  • You bring an existing network in the media, stakeholders and/or the industry
  • You’ve worked in a tech startup or scaleup before
  • Video production and editing know how
