Graphcore has created a completely new processor, the Intelligence Processing Unit (IPU), specifically designed for artificial intelligence. The IPU’s unique architecture means developers can run current machine learning models orders of magnitude faster. More importantly, it lets AI researchers undertake entirely new types of work, not possible using current technologies, to drive the next great breakthroughs in general machine intelligence.

We believe our IPU technology will become the worldwide standard for artificial intelligence compute. The performance of Graphcore’s IPU is going to be transformative across all industries and sectors whether you are a medical researcher, roboticist or building autonomous cars.

Our team is at the forefront of the artificial intelligence revolution, enabling innovators from all industries and sectors to expand human potential with technology. What we do, really makes a difference.

The Graphcore IPU is designed to work as an accelerator for the industry’s most demanding and advanced machine learning workloads. As part of the Graphcore System Architecture team you will be involved in defining, developing and delivering the System-on-Chip aspects of current and future IPU processors that integrate closely with advanced CPUs, storage and networking hardware and software.

You will have the opportunity to work on greenfield projects daily and given the scope to learn, grow and evolve into the role working with a likeminded team as we create the architecture around what our chip looks like.

Who would suit this role..

Recent graduates in similar field for example - Machine Learning, Computer Science, Micro Electronics or perhaps you already have 2-3 years’ experience working with similar technology. You’re a lateral thinker that loves problem solving, keen to experiment, test and create. You have a high attention to detail with excellent written communication.

You don’t need to be an expert on the following (yet), but you can be, as we are seeking driven individuals to join our team with a strong interest in developing themselves within the following areas in which our team is active:

  • Machine Intelligence algorithms
  • Data centre architecture at scale: computer, networking and storage.
  • Developing software models (C/C++/python) of hardware functionality and networking architectures for verification and performance estimation at various levels of abstraction.
  • Logical design and synthesis using Verilog, physical design, layout tools.
  • PCI Express, Ethernet or similar high-speed communication protocols, at all levels from electrical signalling through to drivers and software stacks

We welcome people of different backgrounds and experiences and are committed to building an inclusive work environment that makes Graphcore a great home for everyone. We are an equal opportunity employer and want to build a work environment where everyone is happy, productive and respectful so they can do their best work. If you have a disability or additional need that requires accommodation, just let us know.
