NVIDIA has been redefining computer graphics, PC gaming, and accelerated computing for more than 25 years. It’s a unique legacy of innovation that’s fueled by great technology—and amazing people.

Today, we’re tapping into the unlimited potential of AI to define the next era of computing. An era in which our GPU acts as the brains of computers, robots, and self-driving cars that can understand the world. Doing what’s never been done before takes vision, innovation, and the world’s best talent. As an NVIDIAN, you’ll be immersed in a diverse, supportive environment where everyone is inspired to do their best work.

NVIDIA Networking team is looking for a creative HPC software architect to lead the shaping of future high performance computing and networks. As a part of the team you will lead research, development, and deployment of innovative solutions in the networking hardware, programming environments, and system software to make future high-end computer systems more performant, scalable, and more usable. Come join the team and see how you can make a lasting impact on the world.

What you will be doing:

  • Creating prototypes to evaluate and motivate extensions in programming models (MPI, OpenSHMEM, PGAS), new designs in runtimes, and new features in the network hardware.

  • Research, design and implement features for open source HPC communication middleware (Open MPI, UCX, UCC), and Deep Learning frameworks such as TensorFlow and PyTorch.

  • Work with hardware architects to define the future hardware relevant for scientific applications, Deep learning, and data-intensive workloads.

  • Participating in and contributing to parallel programming interface specifications like MPI/OpenSHMEM.

What we need to see:

  • A PhD candidate in computer science, computer engineering, or a closely related field

  • Background in parallel programming models, and/or network architecture.

  • Background in algorithm design, system programming, and computer architecture

  • Strong programming and software development skills

  • Ability and flexibility to work and communicate effectively in a multi-national, multi-time-zone corporate environment

Ways to stand out from the crowd:

  • Deep understanding of technology and passionate about what you do

  • Strong collaborative and interpersonal skills, specifically a proven ability to effectively guide and influence within a dynamic environment

  • Previous experience in designing communication middleware for high-performance computing systems, including InfiniBand, DPUs, Ethernet, and Shared Memory;

  • Experience in implementing communications libraries, particularly MPI, OpenSHMEM, or PGAS;

  • Previous experience in programming models for emerging architectures including hierarchical heterogeneous memory systems and accelerators;
