Job Description

Distributed Kernel Software Engineer

gdR has partnered with one of global tech's rising stars to build their Toronto office. Our client is changing the game of compute to enable AI and deep learning. Having raised in excess of $100M venture capital, with industry leading founders, and significant customers (e.g., research labs) that are using their system (it's not just a chip), they are well positioned to grow into an industry leader that's conquered challenges that people have described as impossible. 

We're recruiting multiple Distributed Kernel Software Engineers. The team of kernel developers is responsible for the design, implementation, and performance tuning of deep learning operations on highly parallel custom processors. They are developing parallel and distributed algorithms to maximize hardware utilization and accelerate the training of deep neural networks to unprecedented speeds.

You'll be responsible for:

  • Design and implement optimized kernels for primitive operations used by state-of-the-art neural network architectures. 
  • The role involves a mix of algorithm design, kernel implementation, and performance tuning.
  • You will also be responsible for understanding the latest deep learning algorithms in order to design kernel implementations.
We're looking for:
  • 5+ years of experience in kernel design, implementation, and optimization
  • Bachelor's / Master's degree or foreign equivalent in Computer Science, Engineering, or related field
  • Familiarity with parallel algorithms and distributed memory systems
  • Ability to read and write code using C and Python
  • Experience with assembly-level programming and optimization
  • Understanding of hardware architecture concepts -- you should be comfortable learning the details of a new hardware architecture
  • Deep learning algorithm experience is a plus
