About us

Riverlane builds ground-breaking software to unleash the power of quantum computers. Backed by leading venture-capital funds and the University of Cambridge, we develop software that transforms quantum computers from experimental technology into commercial products.

You will join our cross-disciplinary team of software/hardware developers, mathematicians, quantum information theorists, computational chemists and physicists – all world experts in their fields. Our collaborative, close-knit team has a track record of delivering high-quality R&D across the full quantum stack. As a growing company, you will have the freedom to think independently and creatively, as well as contribute to Riverlane’s business development.

About the role

You will join our Engineering function building Deltaflow.Control, a universal control-stack for Quantum Computers. Working closely with our quantum hardware, you will define the user interface that enables quantum experiments.

Given the ground-breaking nature of our products we operate in a fast-moving and dynamic fashion: everyone in the Engineering and Application teams work with our Product Team in defining mid-term and long-term goals to best shape our products.

What you will do

Working as part of a flexible engineering team, you will collaborate with engineers, product managers and designers in the development of Deltaflow Control. As the first frontend developer at Riverlane, you will be making decisions on what frameworks to use to meet the product requirements and bringing different technologies together to create complete frontend solutions. As part of your role, you will:

  • Work with the frontend team to expose backend functionality and create a seamless user experience
  • Translate product requirements into software architectures
  • Develop user interfaces to support our internal developments

You do not need a background in quantum computing as relevant training will be given

  • Demonstrable experience architecting and building web apps built on internal and external APIs
  • Desire to lead and drive frontend development
  • Fluency in Javascript or Typescript, NodeJS, HTML and CSS
