R&D - Hardware Engineering - SOC Architecture

Computer Architect - AI Accelerators

Seattle, Washington
Work Type: Full Time
About us:
d-Matrix has fundamentally changed the physics of memory-compute integration with our digital in-memory compute (DIMC) engine. The “holy grail” of AI compute has been to break through the memory wall to minimize data movements. We’ve achieved this with a first-of-its-kind DIMC engine. Having secured over $154M, $110M in our Series B offering, d-Matrix is poised to advance Large Language Models to scale Generative inference acceleration with our chiplets and In-Memory compute approach. We are on track to deliver our first commercial product in early 2024. We are poised to meet the energy and performance demands of these Large Language Models. The company has 70+ employees across Silicon Valley, Sydney and Bengaluru.

Hybrid, working onsite at our Seattle Office 3 days per week.


What You Will Do:

The role requires you to be part of the Hardware Architecture team that defines our next generation AI solution. As part of this team, you will be responsible for design space exploration, workload characterization/mapping and ISA design spanning the data plane as well as control plane in the SoC. You will design, model and drive new architectural features to help design next generation hardware. You will evaluate performance of cutting edge AI workloads. You have had past experience working on performance architecture of AI Accelerators and understand the nuances of what it takes to optimize and trade-off various aspects of hardware-software co-design. You are able to build and scale architectural solutions in a tight development window. You will work with a team of hardware architects to build the architecture from strawman to detailed specification and work closely with other software (ML, Systems, Compiler) and hardware (mixed signal, DSP, CPU) experts in the company.


What You Will Bring:

PhD, Computer Science, Engineering or related degree + 3 or more years of industry experience.

Strong grasp of Computer architecture, HW/SW Co-design, digital design, and machine learning fundamentals

Experience with Data parallel architectures and SIMD/Vector extensions

Experience with workload characterization and competitive analysis

Experience with performance modeling, analysis and correlation (w/ RTL) of GPU/AI Accelerator architectures

Proficient in C/C++ or Python development in Linux environment and using standard development tools.

Self-motivated team player with a strong sense of ownership and leadership



Prior startup, small team or incubation experience

Work experience at a cloud provider or AI compute / sub-system company

Experience with ISA design and architecture specification
