Job Description

Do you have a strong passion for optimizing cutting-edge HPC, datacenter, and client SW for maximum performance on the latest HW? We are looking for individuals who are interested in optimizing the world's leading Machine Learning / Deep Learning frameworks for current and future Intel datacenter/client CPUs and GPUs. This is a product development position with the end goal being high-quality, high-performance, secure product SW that makes the latest cutting-edge HW shine. You will start optimization pre-silicon and have access to HW shortly after it is first powered on. 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 Machine Learning Performance (MLP) division is at the leading edge of the AI revolution at Intel, covering the full stack from applied ML to ML / DL and data analytics frameworks, to Intel oneAPI AI libraries, and CPU/GPU HW/SW co-design for AI acceleration. It is an organization with a strong technical atmosphere, innovation, friendly team-work spirit, and engineers with diverse backgrounds. The Deep Learning Frameworks and Libraries (DLFL) department is responsible for optimizing leading DL frameworks on Intel platforms. We also develop the popular oneAPI Deep Neural Network Library (oneDNN), and new oneDNN Graph library. Our goal is to lead in Deep Learning performance for both the CPU and GPU. We work closely with other Intel business units and industrial partners.

You will lead software development and optimizations in the following areas:

  • Analyze Deep Learning models and framework implementations to identify performance bottlenecks and optimization opportunities
  • Accelerate the frameworks, such as PyTorch and TensorFlow, on Intel platforms 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
  • Develop low-precision high-performance versions of popular models to take advantage of new instructions and architectures designed to accelerate Deep Learning

An ideal candidate would exhibit behavioral traits that indicate

  • Ability to work in a dynamic and team-oriented environment
  • Ability 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 written and oral 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.


Qualifications

  • Bachelor's with 6+ years or Master's with 4+ years or PhD with 2 years of relevant industry experience in Computer Science or Computer Engineering or  Electrical Engineering or related technical disciplines.

5+ years of experience with the following skills:

  • Excellent SW development skills in C++ (4+ years in large code base)
  • Advanced experience with low-level software development and optimization of computation and memory for high performance
  • Advanced experience programming and debugging applications on Linux systems including multithreaded applications

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Extensive experience with low-level software development and optimization of computation and memory for high performance on parallel HW
    Experience with:
  • Performance on Intel CPU, GPU
  • Applications involving linear algebra such as matrix multiply
  • HPC applications and distributed computing
  • Compiler optimization development
  • Understanding of Deep Learning algorithms
  • Deep Learning frameworks
  • Developing or optimizing Deep Learning models, especially low precision models
  • MLPerf benchmarks
  • Using high-performance math libraries
  • Designing APIs, especially user visible APIs
  • Professional development experience in Python
