Software Platform Engineer (compiler specialist)

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.

Main focus

Working on the IPU architecture compiler. Understanding code generation & optimization of C / C++ code to the instruction set of the machine. The architecture compiler and its ability to target the IPU for maximum performance and flexibility, is a fundamental component of the Poplar framework.

Compiler experience is important, although experience in a different but related part of the toolchain, with a desire to move into compiler development, would also be considered. Experience in LLVM and C++ are valued.

We welcome people of different backgrounds and experiences and are committed to building an inclusive work environment that makes Graphcore a great home for everyone. We are an equal opportunity employer and want to build a work environment where everyone is happy, productive and respectful so they can do their best work. If you have a disability or additional need that requires accommodation, just let us know.
