We are hiring senior engineers to work on CUDA driver and runtime, core components of our platform for accelerating general purpose computation on the GPU. Our team analyzes performance of applications, investigates bottlenecks in software or hardware and delivers features and improvements to better realize the potential of NVIDIA hardware for a growing range of computational workloads, ranging from deep learning, scientific computation, and self-driving cars to video games and virtual reality. CUDA defines a unified programming model across a range of system configurations and hardware capabilities. To accomplish this, the CUDA driver interacts with GPU hardware, kernel mode drivers, and the operating system.

What you'll be doing:

  • As a member of our team, you will use your design abilities, coding expertise, and creativity to deliver the best compute platform in the world. You will craft elegant solutions to exciting problems and craft the strategic direction of CUDA as you collaborate with your peers across NVIDIA. You will investigate complex performance problems and deliver robust solutions that accelerate applications.

  • In this role, you will promote, architect, and implement new features and analyze full stack performance ranging from application level through libraries, system software, kernel software and hardware.

  • You'll coordinate and drive development efforts across multiple teams defining forward-looking improvements to the CUDA APIs and programming model and building novel system software optimizations.

  • Effectively write maintainable and well-tested code as well as develop code for multiple operating systems.

What we need to see:

  • BS or MS degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or equivalent experience

  • 5+ years of related development experience

  • Strong C programming skills

  • Experience working with large codebases

  • Experience with operating system interfaces for threads, process control, and virtual memory

  • Track record of debugging performance problems in complex environments with both software and hardware components

  • Having a deep understanding of technology and having passion for what you do

  • Strong collaborative and interpersonal skills, specifically a proven ability to effectively influence across groups

  • Good written communication

  • Experience writing and debugging multithreaded programs

Ways to stand out from the crowd:

  • Solid understanding of system level architecture, such as interconnects, memory hierarchy, interrupts, and memory-mapped IO

  • Knowledge of memory coherence and consistency models

  • Background with kernel mode development

  • Experience with Windows, Linux, or macOS driver development

  • Some familiarity with C++
