Furthermore, Qedma boasts an extraordinary team of personnel. Our research and application teams comprise not only the foremost Q computing researchers in Israel but also global leaders. Collaborating closely with these teams is the development team, which includes uniquely skilled programmers with a strong background in Israel’s premier technology firms and a history of service within the top technology units of the Israel Defense Forces. Notably, all team members hold degrees in physics and computer science from Israel’s finest universities.
At Qedma, we believe that gender balance is extremely important. Qedma has particularly emphasized this aspect in leadership roles, with 50% women representation in its top management. Qedma intends to soon improve its gender balance across all levels of positions. Achieving gender balance is not only a matter of equality but also a strategic imperative for Qedma. Ensuring it will enhance our ability to adapt and innovate by bringing diverse perspectives and experiences to the forefront.
