Automotive Technical Product Manager

Bristol / Full-Time

Graphcore has created a completely new processor, the Intelligence Processing Unit (IPU), specifically designed for artificial intelligence. The IPU’s unique architecture means developers can run current machine learning models’ orders of magnitude faster. More importantly, it lets AI researchers undertake entirely new types of work, not possible using current technologies, to drive the next great breakthroughs in general machine intelligence.

We believe our IPU technology will become the worldwide standard for artificial intelligence compute. The performance of Graphcore’s IPU is going to be transformative across all industries and sectors whether you are a medical researcher, roboticist or building autonomous cars.

Our team is at the forefront of the artificial intelligence revolution, enabling innovators from all industries and sectors to expand human potential with technology. What we do, really makes a difference.

The Automotive Technical Product Manager will work closely with customers in detailed discussions of the application requirements, often providing technical leadership to the customer in helping them address their application requirements in novel ways with our technology. The ideal candidate is able to map the detailed application requirements to the product definition in the form of a detailed product requirements specification. An understanding of the algorithms (DNN, conventional computer vision processing, etc.) in an autonomous vehicle ECU implementation and how they map.
