Parallel/Distributed Algorithms Engineer

Cerebras is developing 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.

Cerebras is building a team of exceptional people to work together on big problems. Join us!

The Role

  • Create high-performance linear-algebra and machine-learning kernels for custom processors.
  • Design and implement parallel algorithms on a distributed hardware architecture.
  • Tune and optimize low-level assembly code within significant constraints of highly-optimized high performance hardware.
  • Understand the tradeoffs of performance, compute, and memory and simultaneously optimize for all three.

Skills & Qualifications
