Senior System Software Engineer - Tegra


April 29, 2021

We are now looking for a Senior System Software Engineer - Tegra.
NVIDIA has continuously reinvented itself over two decades. Our invention of the GPU in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined modern computer graphics, and revolutionized parallel computing. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI — the next era of computing and autonomous machines. NVIDIA is a “learning machine” that constantly evolves by adapting to new opportunities that are hard to resolve, that only we can seek, and that matter to the world. This is our life’s work, to amplify human inventiveness and intelligence. Make the choice to join us today!
NVIDIA is searching for a creative and highly motivated engineer with expertise in system software to join the Tegra system-on-chip (SoC) software organization. You will design key aspects of our SoC kernel drivers and embedded software with a focus on enabling best-in-class power and performance for ARM SoCs.
What you’ll be doing:

  • Review architectural performance bottlenecks for various datacenter and edge server workloads. Define system level HW/SW policies to maximize performance and performance/watt.

  • Work closely with cross-functional teams such as HW, SW, platform, marketing and customer engineering teams. Provide feedback and assess tradeoffs in order to converge on key design choices.

  • Using strong communication skills, build and drive architecture, analysis documents and communications to internal and/or external audiences about our technology.

  • Collaborate with hardware architecture teams. Identify opportunities to improve our architecture and make it more performant generation to generation.

What we need to see:

  • BS or MS degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or related degree (or equivalent experience)

  • 4+ years of relevant software development experience

  • Hands on technical experience and demonstrated excellence in an environment with complex software and hardware designs

  • Strong understanding of multicore hardware, operating systems design, concurrency, virtual memory, caching, interrupts, device drivers and real-time programming

  • Outstanding C programming and low-level driver experience

  • Experienced with ARMv8 based processor architecture

Ways to stand out from the crowd:

  • Proven leadership skills and strong ownership on past projects

  • Experience analyzing, debugging and tuning performance of complex system software stacks.

  • Knowledge of virtualization platforms (KVM, QEMU)

  • Deep understanding of system level architecture, such as topologies, interconnects, memory hierarchy, interrupts, and memory-mapped IO

NVIDIA is 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. If you're creative and autonomous, we want to hear from you!
NVIDIA is committed to fostering a diverse work environment and proud to be an equal opportunity employer. As we highly value diversity in our current and future employees, we do not discriminate (including in our hiring and promotion practices) on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, gender expression , sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, disability status or any other characteristic protected by law.
