Leading Technology Executive Max Schireson Joins Quantum Machines’ Board of Directors

Max Schireson, former CEO of open-source database company MongoDB has officially joined Quantum Machines’ board of directors. This new development was made known in an announcement made by Quantum Machines. Quantum Machines is a Tel Aviv based software and hardware company that develops advanced control and operation systems for quantum computers.

“We are very fortunate to add Max to our Board of Directors,”

Dr. Itamar Sivan, CEO of Quantum Machines.

Max Schireson is a leading technology executive that is well known for his reputable achievement of growing the sales of MongoDB – an open-source data company from $1M to $50M and positioning it as the most popular NoSQL database in terms of users. He was also a board member of supercomputer manufacturer Cray until the company was acquired by  Hewlett Packard in 2019.

Currently, Max occupies the position of Executive in Residence at Battery Ventures where he advises Battery and its cloud and big-data portfolio companies. He is also joining Quantum Machines’ board on behalf of  Battery Ventures.

“With the rapid advances being made in the quantum computing industry, Max’ experience as both a business leader, building MongoDB into an industry leader in databases, coupled with his deep knowledge and experience in the high-performance computing industry will be an invaluable resource to Quantum Machines as we build towards the future of quantum computers.”

Dr. Itamar Sivan, CEO of Quantum Machines.

One of the major barriers faced in scaling quantum computing is the development of a viable and sustainable value chain and technology stack. Having different companies focus on different parts of the computer – from qubits to the application means that lead companies have to strategize beyond the deep and complex technology to be developed. Max is joining in this capacity to help Quantum Machines craft the company’s strategy and offerings for it to continue leading the quantum race.

“Quantum computing has the potential to fundamentally change all aspects of our technology,”

Max Schireson, Executive in Residence at Battery Ventures.

Using the Quantum Machines Quantum Orchestration Platform (QOP), researchers and scientists are able to perform highly complex algorithms required to solve major challenges faced in quantum computing. The Quantum Machines Quantum Orchestration Platform (QOP) is the leading scalable cloud-ready solution for the control and operation of quantum computers.

Quantum Machine’s full-stack Quantum Orchestration Platform has the ability to run very complex algorithms including near-term applications of quantum computers and can also solve challenges faced in quantum-error-correction. It presents a new approach in the operations and control of quantum processors by allowing users to discover the potential of all quantum processors through its powerful and easy-to-navigate programming language QUA.

“I’m excited to work with Quantum Machines to continue to advance its business and its products and help realize the potential of quantum computers.”
