Our Team:

You will be joining a team of highly accomplished engineers and architects with a diverse background from across the computing industry. As a member of this group you will work on developing solutions that require innovations – from systems to materials. As the computing requirements across IoT, Big Data and AI are increasing, we need optimizations and innovations across all the layers of design. Optimizations at the algorithm, software and silicon design level is not sufficient any more. In order to drive improvements in PPACt (power, performance, area, cost and time-to-market) for the future cloud and edge workloads, we have to develop innovative architectures that will require us to take a new approach to system design. We are looking for engineers who are technically fearless and can drive solutions, where none exist today.

Key Responsibilities

  • Build simulation framework and performance models for highly innovative platform architectures, including AI accelerator, and computer vision blocks.

  • Understanding of architecture/micro-architecture trade-offs for performance and power analysis.

  • Understanding of computer vision AI workloads a plus. statements.

Our Ideal Candidate

  • Should have extensive experience in performance simulation model development and performance analysis.

  • Prior experience with simulator design/development and performance modeling and analysis for GPU/SoC/CPU/ML accelerators, C/C++/SystemC/Python.

  • Should have very good development experience in C++/SystemC/Python.

  • Familiarity with AI accelerators and GPUs is a plus.

  • Preferably, good exposure to computer vision related AI models (e.g. ResNet, Yolo) and AI frameworks (e.g. TensorFlow, Pytorch)


  • Must to have Bachelor degree in Computer Engineering/Computer Science.

  • Minimum relevant work experience 10+ years.

  • Preferable to have Masters or PhD in Computer Engineering/Computer Science.
