Data scientists spend a considerable amount of time exploring data, iterating over machine learning (ML) experiments. Every hour of compute required to sort through datasets, extract features, fit ML algorithms, hinders the ability of data scientists to drive towards results. Big-data platforms, such as Apache Spark, are popular data processing engines in data centers for data science. NVIDIA will work with open source community to accelerate big-data platforms with GPU for data science. NVIDIA believes that data science workflows can benefit tremendously from being accelerated, to enable data scientists to explore many more and larger datasets to drive towards their business goals, faster, and more reliably. Come join NVIDIA to lead an engineering team to design and develop the accelerated big-data platforms powering this revolution.

What you'll be doing:

  • Responsible for enhancing open source big-data platforms with GPU.
  • Delivering the accelerated big-data platforms to NVIDIA customers in a timely fashion.
  • Collaborating with NVIDIA cloud team and infrastructure team to make accelerated big-data platforms easily available to NVIDIA data scientists.
  • Leading the engagement with open source communities, including Apache Spark and RAPIDS, for technical discussion and contribution.
  • Working with NVIDIA strategic partners on deploying advanced machine learning and data analytics solutions in public cloud or on-premise clusters

What we need to see:

  • BS+ EE/CS or closely related field.
  • 10+ year software experience plus 5+ years of management experience.
  • Working experience with major big-data platforms: Apache Spark, Apache Hadoop and/or Apache Kafka.
  • Consistent track record in operational efficiency and team building.
  • Partnership experience with strategic partners.
  • Familiar with agile software development practice.
