  • Develop CUDA/C++ libraries that will be used by distributed data processing engines, accelerating operations in Apache Spark
  • Improve OSS RAPIDS through technical discussion and code contributions
  • Collaborate with distributed systems teams to craft solutions to distributed processing problems challenges at large scale
  • Provide recommendations and feedback to teams regarding decisions surrounding topics such as infrastructure, continuous integration and testing strategy
  • Build, test and optimize CUDA/C++ libraries across different platforms
  • Build automation and tools that will increase the efficiency of teams developing distributed systems

What we need to see:

  • BS, MS, or PhD in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or closely related field or equivalent experience
  • 8+ years of work experience in software development
  • Outstanding technical skills in designing and implementing high-quality distributed systems
  • Excellent programming skills in C++, Java, and/or Scala
  • Ability to work with multi-functional teams across boundaries and geographies
  • Highly motivated with strong interpersonal skills

Ways to stand out from the crowd:

  • Familiarity with RAPIDS libcudf, RMM and cuIO
  • Experience in writing performant distributed software at scale
  • Experience in OS kernel development
  • Experience with developing in CUDA on GPUs
  • Solid understanding of C++ 17/20

We are widely considered to be one of the technology world’s most desirable employers, and as a result have some of the most forward-thinking and hardworking people in the world working for us. If you're passionate, creative, and driven, we'd love to have you join the team. With competitive salaries and a generous benefits package, we are widely considered to be one of the technology world’s most desirable employers. We have some of the most forward-thinking and hardworking people in the world working for us and, due to unprecedented growth, our exclusive engineering teams are rapidly growing.
