Headquartered in Santa Clara, NUVIA was founded on the promise of reimagining silicon design for high-performance computing environments. The company is focused on building products that blend the best attributes of compute performance, power efficiency and scalability.

Job Description

Join the most cutting-edge and well-funded hardware startup in Silicon Valley as a Toolchain Lead. Our mission is to reimagine silicon and create computing platforms that will transform the industry. You will have the opportunity to work with some of the most talented and passionate engineers in the world to create designs that push the envelope on performance, energy efficiency and scalability. We offer a fun, creative and flexible work environment, with a shared vision to build products to change the world.
As a Toolchain Lead, you are responsible for leading enablement of toolchain support and optimizations for a future server class platform. You will collaborate both internally, and externally with upstream GCC and LLVM compiler communities (including within Linux and commercial Operating System ecosystems), as well as appropriate standards bodies. You will have an opportunity to engage broadly with our customers and third parties on enablement of new platforms, and optimizations in our microarchitecture.

Minimum qualifications

    • Proficient in C or C++, assembly language, and build systems
    • Self-starter who takes initiative and brings technical leadership
    • Good understanding of distributed revision control systems

Preferred qualifications

    • 5 years+ of experience in developing open source compiler toolchains (GCC and/or LLVM)
    • Experience in working “upstream first” with the toolchain communities
    • Experience in performance optimization, working with performance analysis teams, and tuning compilers for specific high performance microprocessors
    • Deep expertise in compiler technology and trends

Role and Responsibilities

    • Assist in the definition of future server class SoCs and platforms
    • Lead the creation of compiler optimizations for server class platforms, focused on ensuring that existing Operating Systems run well, while identifying strong opportunity for enhancements that can improve performance on our hardware
    • Collaborating with the performance team to understand areas of hw optimization
    • Assist in identifying skills requirements and building a team of engineers working on compiler components, collaborating with other teams on bring-up/debug/diags
