Employment Type

Full time



What you will do

  • You’ll span the stack from low-level embedded programming to system-level programming, to exploit our unique insights in compute. You’ll build high performance, availability and reliability infrastructure that powers critical use cases in AI, High Performance Computing, scientific research and developer infrastructure.
  • You’ll gain deep insights into compute systems that power the workloads themselves, and will educate our team on your learnings with thoughtful written communications that will be a foundation for us.
  • Our customers’ problems are bound by the laws of physics, and we need to get as close as possible to optimizing metal - hence Compute Physics.

What we are looking for

  • Someone who doesn’t fit in with traditional full stack developers because you are obsessed with understanding how every layer of compute works
  • Ability and experience, or strong interest in learning the compute stack from hardware, device drivers, OS kernel and system, k8s, distributed systems. You don’t need to know all of these coming in but are curious and have the intellectual bandwidth to quickly learn them.
  • You love to write your insights down and educate the team with humility. You should expect the same from us
  • Creative problem solving, multidisciplinary experience
  • Demonstrated ability to collaborate with others

Preferred Qualifications

  • Strong understanding of Linux and UNIX fundamentals (standard libraries, services, networking, kernel/user-space interaction)
  • Strong system level programming experience (i.e. C/Rust/Go)
  • Experience building resilient and real-time systems. This can come from a range of backgrounds including but not limited to Distributed Systems, Robotics, HPC, Aerospace, Medical Devices.
  • Familiarity with CPU/GPU optimization techniques

Nice to Have

  • Contributions to OSS pertaining to Linux and core libraries
  • Have helped build a service on a large cloud provider (AWS/GCP/Azure/etc)
  • Have worked on a high-availability system
  • Familiar with being oncall (our founders have experience being oncall, and know how rough it is!)
  • Familiarity with problems associated with deploying large scale ML models or batch/scientific compute

Even if you don’t meet all the above qualifications, we strongly encourage you to apply! We’re building some unique systems, and strongly believe in a multidisciplinary approach to engineering. Some of the most interesting challenges are solved by some of the most interesting people. We value people who are passionate, love to learn and are high velocity over any single qualification.
