Vathys (YC W18) Is Hiring a Machine Learning Compiler Engineer

Vathys is hiring a machine learning compiler engineer to build the core compiler to map workloads to our novel 3D dataflow processor.

Superficially, a machine learning compiler is just another compiler, but in truth, it is different in a number of important ways:

1. Machine learning compilers must incorporate "statistical" optimizations in addition to "formal" optimizations. For example, an ML compiler might decide to choose a different batch size or a different sparsity level.

2. Optimizations in ML workloads usually have strong "priors". For example, convolutional networks heavily re-use similar convolution kernels and layer connection patterns (e.g. residual blocks).

The ideal candidate has a good understanding of the fundamentals of deep learning algorithms. Less "I can use Keras" and more "I can write a CNN from scratch in numpy".

Compiler familiarity is good of course, but extensive experience in compiler development is not necessary.

Generous compensation will be provided to the right candidates.
