A position at D-Wave Systems Inc. (www.dwavesys.com) is available immediately. The position requires a Canadian citizen who is currently enrolled in, or recently graduated from, a graduate program. The successful applicant will work closely with Dr. Geordie Rose, the company’s CTO, on building applications that call the company’s quantum computing hardware. These applications will all be generally in the field of artificial intelligence, involving integrating existing technologies in voice to text, text to voice, semantic web (eg. Wordnet and Cyc), chatterbot (eg. Jabberwacky), robotics (Lego mindstorms), and mobile devices (eg. Android phones). We are looking for someone who is an exceptionally talented coder. Familiarity with web services, integration of applications across multiple platforms, and databases is desired. Basic understanding of optimization and decision problems is an asset. Creativity and outside the box problem solving ability will be helpful for these projects.
This position is actually a full-time position, not a summer position (my mistake), and you don’t need to be in grad school–if you are “recently graduated” you qualify also.
If you or someone you know might be interested, drop me a note at email@example.com, put Summer Position in the subject line.
