Quadric has created an innovative general purpose neural processing unit (GPNPU) architecture. The Quadric GPNPU is targeted to run neural network (NN) inference workloads in a wide variety of edge and endpoint devices, ranging from battery operated smart-sensor systems to high-performance automotive or autonomous vehicle systems. Unlike other NPUs or neural network accelerators in the industry today that can only accelerate a portion of a machine learning graph, the Quadric GPNPU executes both NN graph code and conventional C++ DSP and control code. Quadric licenses the GPNPU processor IP that simplifies system-on-chip (SoC) architecture by replacing cumbersome two core and three core designs with a single-core subsystem that accelerates complete application code for image, video, audio, radar and other sensor data paths.

If making an impact and having a seat at the table is important to you, this is the opportunity for you. Join our small, rapidly-growing team at Quadric to develop the leading ML inferencing & DSP solution for edge & endpoint devices. In this position, you will be a core member of our team, and will have an opportunity to grow in the company of expert technologists who also happen to be good people you’ll want to spend time with.

What We Value:

Integrity, Humility, Happiness

What We Expect:

Initiative, Collaboration, Completion

As the software & DL Compiler PM, you will report into the CMO. You will define & manage products across the entire software stack from machine learning graph compilation to embedded runtime code and our embedded compiler toolchain. You will engage with customers, define products and roadmaps, and develop content that propels Quadric’s GTM strategy. You have a strong background in SDKs that cover both graph and code processing, and you will work to adapt strategies to changing business environments. As a key member of the product leadership team, you will collaborate with software architects to assess the feasibility of various features to drive the software roadmap.
