Job Description and Requirements

At Synopsys, we’re at the heart of the innovations that change the way we work and play. Self-driving cars. Artificial Intelligence. The cloud. 5G. The Internet of Things. These breakthroughs are ushering in the Era of Smart Everything. And we’re powering it all with the world’s most advanced technologies for chip design and software security. If you share our passion for innovation, we want to meet you.

Synopsys is a worldwide leading supplier of horizontal IP which is used by our customers to design semiconductor integrated circuits. The IP product portfolio includes ARC processors, high-performance Vector DSP processors, industry-leading neural network processors, USB, DDR, and Ethernet interface controllers and much more.

The ARC Processor team is looking for an experienced compiler engineer who will contribute to the development of our neural network model compiler. This compiler is used by third-party developers who run neural network-based workloads on SoCs with ARC Neural Network Processor IP inside.

Key responsibilities

  • Develop and enhance the compiler backend targeting ARC Neural Network Processor IP
  • Develop compiler passes for lowering a high-level intermediate representation to a low-level hardware accelerator representation
  • Develop mapping and optimization algorithms which partition compute tasks across multiple hardware accelerators in optimal ways

Required Skills

  • 5+ years of proven experience in developing software applications or tooling for domain-specific processors or other similar resource-constrained hardware
  • Ability to write clean, scalable, and maintainable production-level C++ code
  • General understanding of state-of-the-art deep learning concepts, methods and models
  • Familiarity with Agile development methodologies
  • Working experience with embedded systems and hardware device control
  • Familiarity with Git source control management
  • Excellent problem solving and critical thinking skills
  • Team player with good interpersonal skills
  • Excellent written and spoken English

Optional and Helpful Skills

  • Good understanding of compiler theory and compiler industry trends
  • Hands-on experience working on compiler internals (including various optimizations such as auto-parallelization, auto-scheduling and performance analysis), preferably with NN compilers
  • Experience with low-bit model quantization
  • Experience using open-source Neural Network technologies like LLVM / MLIR, TVM, Glow, xbyak, etc.
  • Experience working with frameworks like ONNX, PyTorch, TensorFlow
