According to the The Quantum Insider, investment in the quantum industry has skyrocketed from about $17 million (U.S.) to about $3 billion today. This exponential growth in the quantum industry is creating an immediate need for a motivated and skilled workforce.
Talent more associated with the field such as physicists and engineers, is obviously in demand, however the quantum industry presents many opportunities for candidates with non-traditional backgrounds as well.
TQI decided to take a deep dive into a day–in-the-life at ColdQuanta, a quantum computing and technology company. We interviewed their staff members to give our readers, especially career-seeking readers, a sense of what makes working in the quantum industry — and ColdQuanta, specifically — different from other careers and companies.
