Job Description

The Super Compute Platform (SCP) group within Intel's Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics Group (AXG) defines and delivers HPC products that are critical to customers in Cloud, Government, Academia, and Industrial market segments. These products help end users gain insight into and discover solutions to their most important computing problems. AXG products enable a broad range of breakthroughs: from cutting edge film making and animation, to scientific discoveries, weather simulation, to success in investment banking, to breakthroughs in manufacturing from small businesses to the largest industries.

As an HPC Software Engineer, working on system performance modeling, you will be part of Super Compute Performance and Power Modeling and Measurements team contributing to the development of tools for future products targeted for exascale. The end goal is the development of tools to enable accurate performance projections in a minimum amount of time.

In this role, you will help develop the system model for Intel's next generation architectures. You will collaborate with various vertical application segment experts within Intel to properly capture the HPC workload behavior and represent it with a SW model. You will also work with various HW architects to accurately model HW features and their interactions. Our team also collaborates with multiple different modeling teams to define the proper interfaces between various system components. The work also spans determining the characteristics of key workloads and mapping them to capabilities of Intel products. Your efforts will enable us to drive future Intel technologies in the directions needed to ensure performance leadership as new HPC applications and technologies emerge.

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Being part of fast-paced and tightly-coupled team building an End-to-End System projection framework

  • Capture workload characteristics at the cluster level for both CPUs and GPUs

  • Write C/C++ code and python scripts to define interfaces between tools and interactions between models

  • Develop capabilities to represent dependencies and/or dynamic application behaviors

  • Solve interesting problems like modeling parallel execution flows, repeating patterns of behaviors, and finding HW bottlenecks

  • Collaborate with multiple different modeling teams, SW experts, and HW architects


Minimum qualifications are required 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.

Minimum Education & Experience:

A Bachelor of Science in Computer Science or Engineering, or a directly related field with 4+ years of experience in one, or more of the following:

  • C/C++ development

  • Python scripting

  • Linux Operating System and Bash

Preferred Qualifications:

  • OpenMP, MPI

  • Performance modeling, especially memory dependency tracking

  • Parallel programming using OpenMP, MPI, MPI Optimization, SYCL, DPC++

  • HPC or datacenter architecture experience/knowledge

  • GPU programming: OpenCL/CUDA

Inside this Business Group

The focus of Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics (AXG) is to accelerate our execution in strategic growth areas of high-performance computing and graphics.
