Role overview

Groq is a machine learning systems company building easy-to-use solutions for accelerating artificial intelligence workloads with work that spans hardware, software, and machine learning technology. We are seeking exceptional software engineers to join our compiler team in tackling the exciting problem of translating ML programs into the language of our custom Groq ML accelerator chips. Successful candidates thrive working independently and collaboratively as part of a geographically distributed team. 👨‍💻👩‍💻

Responsibilities

  • Deliver compiler features. Work within the compiler team to design, implement, and test new features for our compiler. Collaborate closely with hardware designers and architects to identify and deploy support for key hardware capabilities.
  • Optimize model performance. Leverage your understanding of machine learning models to develop compiler optimizations that maximize program execution efficiency.
  • Manage performance tradeoffs. Understand the balance between performance, memory, and power in the architecture and manage these tradeoffs in the compiler implementation.
  • Be a productivity multiplier. Contribute to identifying and adopting engineering best practices within the compiler team and across software teams at Groq.  
  • Innovate. Contribute to developing medium and long term strategies for future compiler versions and hardware architectures that add value to our customers.

Minimum qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree in computer science, related fields, or equivalent practical experience
  • 3+ years development experience with a proven track record of delivering high quality production software
  • Understanding of compiler architecture and compiler implementation techniques
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills

Preferred qualifications:

  • MS or PhD in computer science, mathematics, or related fields.
  • Functional programming experience (particularly Haskell)
  • Familiarity with ML models and common frameworks (tensorflow, caffe, pytorch etc)
  • Production compiler development experience
  • Exposure to hardware design
  • 50-249
  • Mountain View, CA, US

Groq develops and deploys new architectures for accelerating machine learning. Building and maintaining robust, secure and scalable compute infrastructure is critical to the success of our organization. We take a co-design approach using both hardware and software to make it easier to adapt and change as field changes. By simplifying the hardware and offloading much of those complications to the software we are able to mitigate much of the risk and costs that comes with complicated hardware manufacturing. By focusing on the low-level software we have also set our product up to scale and iterate new form factors. We take a building block approach so that our product can be made to scale better and run faster without having to revamp the hardware. The goal is to leverage Groq hardware to achieve best-in-class performance for machine learning workloads.
