Compiler Engineer (m/f/x)

Permanent employee, Full-time · Frankfurt

Join Our Mission
Quantagonia, a pioneering force in Quantum Computing, is seeking a passionate engineer and/or applied researcher in the field of AI-based source code analysis and synthesis. This is a unique opportunity to work with cutting-edge technology and make a positive impact on a growing company. The successful candidate will be the driving force behind an automated system that infers semantics and structure from conventional code, bringing the future of computing to multi-million dollar legacy applications. Naturally, you will have the opportunity and time to learn on the job and grow into a central piece of our young and ambitious team.

  • Join Quantagonia's compiler team to automate the synthesis of quantum algorithms to replace and improve classical code.
  • Identify certain idioms in codebases across abstraction levels and apply transformations.
  • Implement a mature, state-of-the-art compiler toolchain that for this novel and exciting area.
  • Develop patterns for AI-assisted structure learning based on code idioms.
  • Help design DSLs for different abstraction levels based on your discoveries.
  • Collaborate with the Quantum Engineering team to approximate code patterns beyond current quantum hardware capabilities.
  • Contribute to open source projects and to the scientific community through our work.
Must haves:
  • 3+ years of academic or professional experience in compilers, demonstrated through software contributions or academic publications.
  • Experience with compiler technologies such as MLIR, LLVM, etc., and domain-specific languages (DSLs).
  • Proficiency in source code instrumentation and pattern-based source code classification.
  • Familiarity with both lower-level languages (C/C++) and higher-level/scripting languages (Python, Julia, etc.).
  • Ownership mindset: actively contribute to product maintenance and deliver features as per the roadmap.
  • Excellent communication skills, team-oriented, with a focus on code quality and clarity.
  • Experience in scaling up algorithms to handle large codebases and real-life scenarios.
  • Experience with source-code analysis and AI techniques.
  • Knowledge and/or experience with current quantum computing technologies.
  • Academic or STEM background.
In addition to that, we expect a certain degree of self-reliance through, e.g. proactively taking up issues from the backlog and coordinating with the product owner to integrate your changes into the production environment.
  • Highly flexible working environment: Adapt to your personal needs, whether it's working hours or location (with limitations). Your happiness and productivity are paramount.
  • Flat hierarchies: Embrace a direct and open approach to personal development and team roles.
  • Personal development opportunities: Collaborate closely with founders, development experts, and industry professionals.
  • Academic integration: Enjoy time off for certifications, courses, and engagement with the academic community.
We prefer a hybrid working model with at least some time (think, e.g. 1 day a week or at least every second week) in our office in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. If working remotely, you need to be located in an EU country.
