Website Quadric


Quadric has created an innovative general purpose neural processing unit (GPNPU) architecture. Quadric’s co-optimized software and hardware is targeted to run neural network (NN) inference workloads in a wide variety of edge and endpoint devices, ranging from battery operated smart-sensor systems to high-performance automotive or autonomous vehicle systems. Unlike other NPUs or neural network accelerators in the industry today that can only accelerate a portion of a machine learning graph, the Quadric GPNPU executes both NN graph code and conventional C++ DSP and control code.


This is a rare opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a revolutionary new processor architecture. As a senior member of our chip design team, you will contribute to all stages of the processor design cycle.


  • Contribute to the definition of the processor architecture by understanding its applications
  • Own microarchitecture definition & RTL implementation of the processor in SystemC or SystemVerilog
  • Own Power, Performance & Area (PPA) optimization
  • Contribute to timing closure through full product cycle (front end, back-end, tapeout)


  • BS/MS or Ph.D. in Electrical or Computer Engineering with a minimum of five years of CPU/GPU/ASIC front-end design
  • Proficiency in SystemC, SystemVerilog, or Verilog
  • Strong background in computer architecture
  • Knowledge of design techniques for low power digital design
  • Knowledge of VCS & Verilog/C Co-Sim
  • Experience in data-parallel hardware design for high-performance computing
  • Experience in FPGA design is a plus
  • Experience in logic synthesis and performance modeling

Nice to haves:

  • Familiarity with automotive safety (ASIL) standards

Expected Outcomes in 12 months:

  • Independently own a major design block and improve PPA
  • Develop an in-depth understanding of the architecture and SW interfaces and be able to debug issues across the full SW/HW stack

Package design for customer releases and incorporate customer feedback


  • Provide competitive salaries and meaningful equity
  • Provide a politics-free community for the brilliant minds who want to make an immediate impact
  • Provide an opportunity for you to build long term career relationships
  • Foster an environment that allows for lasting personal relationships alongside professional ones
