This is a podcast, where we’ll have in-depth discussions about important topics relating to the quantum computing industry, education and fundamentals. The podcast is created by Michał Stęchły – quantum software engineer at Zapata Computing, open-source enthusiast and author of the blog Musty Thoughts.
#1 What Quantum Software Engineers do?
In this episode I talk about the job of quantum software engineers. What this job is about and how it's different from similar positions? What challenges do QSEs face? What are some typical tasks that they work on? I tried to answer all these questions.
