Job Description

We are looking for a software developer to join Compute Performance & Developer Products (CPDP) division of Intel Architecture, Graphics and Software (IAGS) group, which is responsible for leadership performance of computing workloads on Intel platforms through a rich portfolio of software developer products. You will be working in an open and agile environment by leveraging the power of open-source projects as well as the power of a large organization's cross-team work.

We are seeking for experienced compiler developer to work on JIT compilation technologies for Python. Any prior experience with high-performance computing, data analytics, databases as well as knowledge of parallel architectures and system software will be a great addition to a skill-set that we need. You will be part of the team working on leading-edge technologies for numerical computing and data science. We are looking for people who want to play a role in shaping the future of Python for (data) science. Python has become #1 language for data science. What is still lacking is the performance and efficiency of native languages. You will be playing a critical role in changing that by helping data science to scale beyond laptops to powerful servers and clusters.
