Senior Software Developer - Communication, Collectives and MPI

Oslo / 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.

As a Senior Software Developer and networking specialist, you will be working as part of Graphcore’s engineering team in Oslo developing Graphcore scale out technology for our Intelligence Processing Unit (IPU). 

 Responsibilities

  • Developing and integrating the high-performance data center network protocols for our platform. This includes the messaging protocols between our platform and the host and the storage protocols between our platform and the data-center storage
  • Support state-of-the-art data center network technology such as 100/400GbE, RoCE/IB, and PCIe
  • Develop a thorough understanding of our scale out AI platform and take an active role in driving performance and scalability

 Key Skills

  • Candidates should have a solid background with standard networking protocols (TCP, RPC, UDP, IPSec), low-latency protocols (RDMA, RMA) and Clustering.
  • Good knowledge of the OS Network Stack is required
  • Experience with Linux kernel programming and device driver development is very beneficial
  • Knowledge of data-center network security, communication protocols for parallel programming (MPI) and high performance storage protocols such as NVMoF is also very useful but not essential
  • Preferably, you should also have a background or interest in host device and network virtualisation (SR-IOV, Xen, Containers)
  • Previous experience of implementing software requiring a solid understanding of both the application domain and the performance of an underlying hardware system is very useful

 This is a full time role based in Oslo (Norway).

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.
