Learn more about our approach, ideas and use cases:
Within this project we develop solutions for models in energy markets that consist of complex optimization problems including stochastic componentes. Solutions are prototyped and tested on various quantum hardware. The project is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
DZ BANK AG TrendLab
Workshop to explore quantum computing, providing knowledge-transfer and use case identification for various applications in risk management, optimization and machine learning.
Jupyter notebook that translates the combinatorial optimization into a QUBO which can be solved by adiabatic quantum computing, gate-based algorithms and quantum-inspired algorithms. It shows how to allocate a long-short portfolio that minimizes overall risk based on covariance of assets.
An efficient quantum algorithm for finding hidden parabolic subgroups in the general linear group
Polynomial time quantum algorithms for certain bivariate hidden polynomial problems
Hidden Symmetry Subgroup Problems
Creation of a quantum community through meetups, video sessions and workshops to develop a platform for information, ideas, knowledge-transfer and networking. We want to bring together people that are interested in the quantum future.

Markus C. Braun
Founder & Managing Director
Markus founded JoS QUANTUM in 2018. Before that, he worked for Deutsche Bank and as a consultant for various financial institutions. He advised and implemented various quantitative models for fraud detection and risk modelling. Markus studied mathematical physics in Magdeburg, Tokyo and Taipei.
Niklas is managing director of JoS QUANTUM. Before that, he worked as a management consultant in different business and technical areas focusing on software integration and financial services. He was responsible for several big projects mostly in the field of trading and risk management. Niklas worked at the German electron-synchrotron DESY where he used Monte Carlo simulation methods to validate high energy experiments. He received his degree (Dipl.-Phys.) with subsidiary subject economics in 2011 from University of Hamburg.
Head of Research
Sven joined JoS QUANTUM in 2019. He has more than ten years of experience in trading and risk management. Most of that time he spent on the trading floor of a large proprietary trading company where, as Head of Research, he was in charge of all quantitative models and algorithms for trading and built up and managed a team of quants. Before that, he did Part III maths at the University of Cambridge, a PhD in theoretical physics at King’s College, London, and a postdoc at the Center for Theoretical Physics in Groningen.
Chief Technology Officer
Thomas joined JoS QUANTUM in 2019. Before he worked as a software developer for a high-performance database company where he was responsible for the optimization algorithms. He held postdoctoral research positions at the University of Washington in Seattle, at McGill University in Montreal and at the Centre for Quantum Technologies in Singapore. His research is focused on the design and analysis of quantum algorithms and on quantum information theory. He received his Diplom degree in computer science in 2002 and his Dr.rer.nat. degree with specialization in quantum algorithms in 2006 from the University of Karlsruhe (KIT).
