Riverlane has experts in mathematics, computer science, chemistry, physics and quantum computing. Together, we are growing fast and need smart people to join our friendly team.

Introduction

Our world-leading, multi-disciplinary team is based in the heart of Cambridge, UK.  We work together to develop pioneering quantum software. Curious by nature, and optimistic in outlook, we have a razor-sharp focus on doing whatever it takes to get to useful quantum computing, sooner.

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.

Internship Scheme

Our full-time internships are designed to enable current students in a quantitative field to translate their skills and expertise into an industrial setting. Interns will have a dedicated supervisor and 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 offers two internship schemes. A summer scheme aimed at undergraduate, master’s and PhD students with no pre-defined projects. And, a scheme aimed at PhD students with pre-defined projects. Both schemes are currently open with a closing date of 19 February for applications (see below).

Our Application Process

This is very much a two-way process – a chance for you to find out about Riverlane and the role, and for us to find out about you and your skills and experience. Our recruitment process is transparent and relaxed. There is no need to dress up for the interview (we’ll be wearing jeans!).

01

Application

If you are interested in one of our advertised roles, please send us a CV and covering letter. Tell us why you want the job at Riverlane and what skills and experience you can bring to the role

02

Telephone interview

We want to find out more about you and your motivations for the job. It’s also a chance for us to answer any questions you may have about the role or working at Riverlane. This call usually takes around 30 minutes.

03

Face to face interview

This will take place in our Cambridge office (or via Zoom if you live abroad). You’ll meet some of our technical team and a member of the exec. We’ll dig more deeply into your skills and experience. Prior to your visit, we’ll send you a technical puzzle, which we’ll discuss at the interview. You will be with us for around 1.5 hours.

04

Offer

We will get back to you as quickly as possible with a verbal offer and send you a contract in the next week. If we don’t think you’re right for Riverlane at any stage in the process, we’ll let you know promptly. We are always happy to provide feedback.
