Algorithm Modeling Software Engineer
Posted on: January 16, 2021
Facebook Reality Labs focuses on delivering Facebook's vision
through Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). The
compute performance and power efficiency requirements of Virtual
and Augmented Reality require custom silicon. Facebook Silicon team
is driving the state-of-the-art forward with breakthrough work in
computer vision, machine learning, mixed reality, graphics,
displays, sensors, and new ways to map the human body. Our chips
will enable AR and VR devices where our real and virtual world will
mix and match throughout the day. We believe the only way to
achieve our goals is to look at the entire stack, from transistor,
through architecture, to firmware, and algorithms.We are seeking an
Algorithm Modeling Software Engineer to support C++ modeling of
computer vision, ML and other algorithms implemented in dedicated
hardware accelerators (HWA) which are used inside our ASICs. The
successful candidate will be part of a team that includes
algorithm, software, firmware and hardware design and verification
experts. The ideal candidate will understand algorithms, C++
modeling, virtual platforms, and firmware development processes.
This is a full-time position.
- Work with IP Architect to delineate and develop C++ models for
algorithms that will get implemented in hardware.
- Support use of C/C++ models for architectural modeling and
- Support integrating the models into Virtual Platform by SystemC
wrappers for early firmware development.
- B.S. degree in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering or
- 2+ years of hands-on low-level programming experience including
bit-level manipulation of data.
- Knowledge in algorithms, data structures, software design and
programming experience in C/C++ for development, debugging, testing
and performance analysis.
- Experience in writing, manipulating and maintaining scripts -
Python or similar (Perl, Bash/AWK, Tcl).
- M.S. degree in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering.
- Knowledge of audio, image, video and computer vision processing
including file formats, meta data and related techniques for
digital signal processing.
- Knowledge of deep learning techniques such as CNN.
- Experience with SystemC modeling.
- Experience in reference model development.Facebook's mission is
