The Quantum Computing Report (QCR), established in 2015, is the leading and most authoritative web site devoted to the quantum computing industry. Articles posted in the QCR have been referenced or quoted in major national and international media outlets including the Washington Post, CNBC, Forbes, Scientific American, The Economist, Nature Magazine, The Guardian, TechCrunch, Fast Company, Gizmodo, and many others. We have the highest quality reader base which includes quantum computing industry executives, venture capitalists, government policy analysts, U.S. Congressional staffers, enterprise end users, and researchers from academic, commercial, and non-profit organizations. The QCR is viewed by thousands of these users in over 115 countries worldwide.
Our goal is to provide these sophisticated readers with insightful data, analysis and news to let them know what is happening. We use our extensive understanding and experience, both technically and commercially, to provide a deeper analysis to our readers than what they might get from other media outlets. Other outlets often not understand this complex technology nor have they been following it for so many years. We do not do hype nor do we simply regurgitate press releases that are issued by the various organizations working in quantum technology.
We are now looking for a part-time Technology Editor whose primary duty it to write a weekly column that covers new technical advances in the field. With the large increases in quantum related press releases and technical papers being released every week we are seeking to expand our coverage in the unique QCR style. We strive to provide the information concisely for busy executives while still offering a deeper level of analysis, where appropriate, to describe the relative importance of the developments along with how they relate to other activity in the field. The Technical Editor must be able to separate the wheat from the chaff and filter out the hype and fluff that appear in many of the press releases.
The Technology Editor must have expertise in quantum computing and be able to understand and intelligently comment on both its hardware and software aspects. This person must also have good written communication skills and be able to explain complex technical concepts to an audience that, while sophisticated, may not have the same background in quantum technologies that they have. This position is currently intended to be part-time and would require a few hours per week. It could be ideal for a PhD student, postdoc, or junior professor looking to earn some extra income while also gaining more industry visibility through the QCR audience.
