Job Description

The Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics Group (AXG) brings Intel's technical strategy to life. Our team defines, develops and brings to market integrated and discrete GPUs addressing consumer and data center customer needs. The Architecture team is responsible for the definition of all GPU products covering 3D gaming, AI, HPC and visual cloud segments. We combine innovations in architecture, software, and graphics technology to go beyond transistors to drive competitive advantages at the product and solution level. Our culture of continuous learning, diverse thinking fearless leadership and inclusive teamwork makes it possible for our group to turn ambitious ideas into seamless execution.

The GPU Compute Architecture team is looking for strong problem solver, passionate and driven individuals to help define and build the next generation of highly efficient GPU architectures for Intel. We are looking for a GPU Compute Performance Engineer to analyze deep learning networks, high performance computing (HPC) workloads to identify bottlenecks and performance issues, and to optimize the architecture to maximize performance. The compute architecture team is responsible for architecture definition, analysis, performance projections, and performance attainment for GPUs targeting AI, HPC, and data centers.

Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

  • Performance and power modelling, workload analysis, and performance debug to identify SW/HW performance improvement.
  • Analyze and report out workload performance for future GPU architectures.
  • Collaborate with other architecture, modeling, and validation teams on feature definition and performance target attainment
  • Analyze new SW/HW innovations and drive the most relevant into future GPU Architecture definition.


You must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates. Experience listed below would be obtained through a combination of your school work/classes/research and/or relevant previous job and/or internship experiences.
