IonQ is developing the world's first fully-expressive, full-stack quantum computer based on trapped ion technology. We are pushing past the limits of classical physics and current super computing technology to unlock the staggering potential of the quantum realm. Quantum computing is poised to reshape medicine, materials, simulation, and much more.

To support our rapid growth, we're hiring creative collaborators with top skills in their areas of expertise and a commitment to success.  Located down the street from the University of Maryland, IonQ is conveniently located within walking distance from the Metro rail, which is a quick trip to Washington, DC.  Our office is a bright and open workspace, in a fun, fast-paced, and exciting environment, where we value each other’s unique qualities.


  • Mechanical design of precision, ultrastable optomechanical and laser platforms, and tools/fixtures for optical assembly
  • Design of custom components to mitigate effects due to static or dynamic mechanical loads, thermal effects, and vibration
  • Model system dynamics, including heat flow, vibration, and fluid dynamics to optimize system performance
  • Characterize performance of mechanical systems and impact of environmental factors
  • Active, high-bandwidth stabilization of mechanical systems applying expertise in control systems (e.g. transfer function measurements, loop filter design)


Required Skills/Education:

  • Bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering or related
  • 10-15 years experience
  • Experience with design of precise and highly stable assemblies
  • Extensive experience with 3D CAD modeling
  • Experience with active stabilization systems
