We are looking for individuals who are interested in developing software for advanced computer architecture pathfinding and applied research. You will be developing software (SW) stacks from the ground up for novel architectures, testing those SW stacks on FPGAs and prototype hardware (HW) and porting SW applications frameworks to the new architectures. This is a position with the end goal being high-quality, high-performance SW that demonstrates the novelty and performance in the architecture developed. You will start SW development pre-silicon and have access to FPGA and emulation models to develop the SW in tandem with HW milestones. Product innovation and publication is encouraged and there are some opportunities to collaborate with research partners to develop ideas and translate them into the product.
The Extreme Scale Computing (ESC) team develops advanced architectures in collaboration with US Govt. Agencies. We have a HW-SW co-development model covering the full SW stack from applied machine learning (ML) to ML/DL and acceleration for emerging application like sparse graph processing, which are the future of A.I. It is an organization with a strong technical atmosphere, innovation, friendly team-work spirit, and engineers with diverse backgrounds.
You will work on software development and optimizations by analyzing SW framework implementations to identify performance bottlenecks and optimization opportunities. You will analyze the frameworks, such as PyTorch and TensorFlow, on various State-of-the-Art platforms and optimizing on the novel HW being developed by contributing optimizations and features directly to the public framework source or to pluggable open-source extension modules. These frameworks are primarily written in C++ and Python.
An ideal candidate would exhibit behavioral traits that indicate:
Willing to work in a dynamic and team-oriented environment
Willing to work closely with teammates at multiple US sites as well as with closely related teams in other countries working virtually together on the same product
Positive can-do attitude, desire to deliver results and winning products
Excellent communication skills
You should have a passion for optimization and performance at the low level, close the HW, as well as for good SW engineering practice and usability.
You must possess the below minimum education requirements and minimum required qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Relevant experience can be obtained through schoolwork, classes, project work, internships, and/or military experience. Additional preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates.
