SoC Software Developer

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

In your work you will work closely with the hardware teams to develop and support the embedded software platform and run-time environment for our scale out technology. Lab and bring-up support will be a natural part of the job.

You are passionate about developing a solid software platform ready to be deployed at scale in enterprise and cloud environments.


  • A solid experience with embedded software development and C/C++ programming
  • Good knowledge in modern operating systems such as Linux and RTOS, as well as low-level platform software and peripheral device drivers for PCIe, I2C, etc., is useful 
  • Knowledge of storage systems (File, Block) is a plus (Local/Network/Cloud Attached)
  • Good knowledge of common development and integration tools such as yocto/git/gtest is a plus

This position will work at the boundary between software and hardware, and close interaction with our engineering teams in Oslo and Bristol is required. 

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.
