Job Description

Join Intel-and build a better tomorrow. Intel is in the midst of an exciting transformation, with a vision to create and extend computing technology to connect and enrich the lives of every person on Earth. Join us and help us create the next generation of technologies that will shape the future for decades to come.

About the organization:

Intel's Neuromorphic Computing Lab is pioneering a new domain of brain-inspired computer architecture defined by large parallel collections of neural processing units operating as sparsely active event-driven nonlinear dynamical systems. This technology promises orders of magnitude gains in efficiency and speed compared to conventional architectures for a large class of emerging intelligent computing workloads. While neuromorphic hardware architecture and algorithms have progressed rapidly over the past few years, the development of professional neuromorphic software tools, methods, and frameworks is still at a nascent stage.

About the role:

We are looking for a talented and distinguished software manager to lead the development of a new open-source framework, Lava, that re-thinks the entire software stack for the unique needs of neuromorphic computing: from programming and training to compilation and deployment to execution and dataflow.

This role requires a strong familiarity with AI/ML concepts and frameworks, event-based parallel programming (e.g. actor model or communicating sequential processes), and embedded real-time systems. In this role you will lead a team of software engineers in partnership with a growing external research ecosystem contributing to the Lava framework.

You will participate in the group's neuromorphic research as part of a collaborative and iterative co-development effort advancing the hardware architecture, software, algorithms, and applications. You will work closely with users and partners spanning government, corporate, and academic research groups, with the objective to prepare this technology for commercial deployment.


You must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates. Experience would be obtained through a combination of prior education level classes, and current level school classes, projects, research, and relevant previous job and/or internship experience.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • The candidate must possess a Masters degree or PhD degree in Computer Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Computer Science

  • 5+ years experience in rofessional object-oriented software development, e.g. with C++, Python, or Java

  • 1+ year experience in Software Management

  • 1+ year experience in AI frameworks such as TensorFlow or PyTorch

  • 1+ year experience in Embedded systems programming

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Technical publications or patents demonstrating software innovation

  • Functional programming

  • Actor programming model

  • Hardware development e.g. FPGA
