Principal Product Manager, ML

Sunnyvale, CA

Cerebras has developed a radically new chip and system to dramatically accelerate deep learning applications. Our system runs training and inference workloads orders of magnitude faster than contemporary machines, fundamentally changing the way ML researchers work and pursue AI innovation.

We are innovating at every level of the stack – from chip, to microcode, to power delivery and cooling, to new algorithms and network architectures at the cutting edge of ML research. Our fully-integrated system delivers unprecedented performance because it is built from the ground up for deep learning workloads.

The Role

In this role, you will be responsible for productizing the most critical ML use cases for our company.  

You will work closely with Product leadership and our ML Research and Applied ML teams to identify the most promising areas within the industry and research community for us to go after, balancing business value for our customers and ML thought leadership for Cerebras.  

You will translate abstract neural network requirements into concrete deliverables for the Engineering team and work with cross-functional partners to establish roadmaps, process, success criteria, and feedback loops to continuously improve our products.  

This role combines both the highly technical with the highly strategic. Successful candidates will have deep understanding of machine learning and deep learning concepts, a familiarity with common modern models (in particular in the LLM space), and the ability to understand the mathematical foundations behind them. Ideal candidates can go beyond model understanding to see the connections and commonalities across different types of neural networks in different application domains. They will also be close followers of the recent developments in deep learning and have a point of view on which types of models may be widely used within the next 1, 3, 5 years.  

At Cerebras, we're proud to be among the few companies globally capable of training massive LLMs with over 100 billion parameters. We're active contributors to the open-source community, with millions of downloads of our models on Hugging Face. Our customers include national labs, global corporations across multiple industries, and top-tier healthcare systems. This month, we announced a multi-year, multi-million-dollar partnership with Mayo Clinic, underscoring our commitment to transforming AI applications across various fields. We are already booking hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue each year, with a strong growth trajectory.  

As the Cerebras ML PM, you will be in the pilot’s seat, driving the transformational role of AI in multiple different industries and getting to work with some of the largest and most interesting datasets in the world alongside a world-class ML research and engineering team.
