NVIDIA's invention of the GPU 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 with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots, and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world. Today, we are increasingly known as "the AI computing company".

We are looking to grow our company, and grow our teams with the smartest people in the world. We are looking for you: a Computer Science or Computing Engineering grad student to support our NVIDIA Back End Compiler Team for a 16-week internship.

Our Compiler team is responsible for constructing and emitting the highest performance GPU machine instructions for Graphics (OpenGL, Vulkan, DX) and Compute (CUDA, PTX, OpenCL, Fortran, C++). This team is comprised of worldwide leading compiler engineering experts who provide leading edge performance and capabilities for NVIDIA's current and future complex parallel SIMT architectures.

What you'll be doing:

  • Assist in support and enhancements for the OCG Compiler Testing Infrastructure

  • You will be working on scripts to improve and support the existing compiler testing infrastructure. You will work closely with a mentor as well as collaborate with the rest of the team.

  • Investigate problems or improvement opportunities within the NVIDIA Compiler Back End consistent with your compiler experience and knowledge.

What we need to see:

  • You are currently pursuing your Master's degree in Computer Science or Computer Engineering. A Bachelor's degree is required.

  • Successful completion of an undergraduate Compiler Design class.

  • Strong writing and oral skills, as well as an ability to follow best practices for Software Engineering.

  • You possess strong coding skills with Perl, Python, Shell script and C++, as well as basic knowledge of SQL.

Ways to stand out from the crowd:

  • You wish to specialize in Compiler Design and Construction, and have pursued graduate coursework in these areas.

  • You possess hands-on experience with backend compiler design and code generation.

  • Experience with in any of the following areas is a plus: GPU and parallel architectures; CUDA and/or PTX; Graphics (OpenGL, DX or Vulkan); jQuery, CGI and HTML knowledge.

  • Understand the basics of unit testing methods. Familiarity with any unit test framework (e.g. GoogleTest) a plus.

With competitive salaries and a generous benefits package, NVIDIA is widely considered to be one of the technology world's most desirable employers. We have some of the brightest people in the world working for us and, due to unprecedented growth, our elite engineering teams are rapidly growing. If you're a creative and autonomous engineer with a real passion for technology, we want to hear from you.
