The scope of these efforts includes a combination of implementing new algorithms, performance tuning and analysis, defining APIs, analyzing functionality coverage, and other general software engineering work.


What you will be doing:

  • Developing new models and algorithms in Speech Recognition, Speech Synthesis, Natural Language Processing and Deep Learning
  • Architecting and implementing features in C++, CUDA, and Python
  • Working with engineering teams across all of NVIDIA to ensure your software integrates seamlessly up and down the stack


What we need to see:

  • Understanding of modern techniques in Machine Learning, Deep Neural Networks, Natural Language Processing, or Speech Recognition
  • 5+ years industry experience in Deep Learning frameworks (PyTorch or Tensorflow)
  • Passion for software engineering. We are especially looking for excellent C++ and Python development skills, with meaningful contributions to major open-source projects.
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills along with the ability to work in a dynamic and distributed team. Your history of mentoring junior engineers and interns is a huge plus.
  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent experience.
  • A desire to constantly grow and learn new things.
  • Strong computer science fundamentals - algorithms and data structures, computational complexity, parallel and distributed computing, system software.


Ways to stand out from a crowd:

  • Experience architecting or developing large-scale distributed systems
  • Knowledge of CPU and/or GPU architecture
  • GPU programming (CUDA)


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. If you're a creative and autonomous engineer with a real passion for technology, we want to hear from you.



The base salary range is $141,000 - $325,000. Your base salary will be determined based on your location, experience, and the pay of employees in similar positions.

You will also be eligible for equity and benefits.
