We are now looking for a Systems Software Engineer. NVIDIA's invention of the GPU 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined modern computer graphics, and revolutionized parallel computing. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI — the next era of computing — with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots, and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world. Today, we are increasingly known as “the AI computing company”. We are looking to grow our company , and grow our teams with the smartest people in the world

Systems Software supports NVIDIA's new high performance chipset business. They are generalists, with a deep understanding of the today's PC architecture, including bus protocols such as PCI, AGP, USB and 1394, and CPU booting, arbitration, and cache management protocols. System engineers program down to the metal, and are comfortable around hardware specs. They write software for Networking, Audio, IDE, SMBus and other hardware, and implement support for modern PC standards such as ACPI and OnNow

What you’ll be doing:

  • Developing and validating software for our next-generation SOC platform.

  • Solve and debug problems related to Memory, ACPI, Graphics, and Display to support our customers, partners, and users.

  • Investigating and scoping out the architecture requirement for the next-generation SOC systems.

What we need to see:

  • Master’s Degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or equivalent experience

  • 6+ years of experience

  • Strong C programming skills as well as having shown initiative in pursuing independent coding projects

  • Solid engineering background and understanding of good code methodology

  • Experience writing code to directly control hardware is a plus

  • Good foundation and understanding of OS & RTOS concepts.

Ways to stand out from the crowd:

  • Strong understanding of Memory Architecture, ACPI, Graphics, and Display from a vertical point of view.

  • Proficient in navigating the functionalities of diverse IPs within the SOC platform, backed by a robust knowledge of memory management and coherency principles

NVIDIA is widely considered to be one of the technology world’s most desirable employers. We have some of the most brilliant and talented people on the planet working for us. If you're creative and autonomous, we want to hear from you!
