R&D SYCL Libraries Internship

Codeplay is the main developer and maintainer of several SYCL-based libraries, targeting several common HPC workloads. SYCL-DNN is a pure SYCL library that aims to provide performance-portable implementations of frequently used Deep Neural Network (DNN) operators such as convolution, pooling, activation functions and batch normalization. During the internship you will be tasked with implementing new DNN operators, extending the capabilities of pre-existing ones, and designing the best possible API structure for those operators. In addition to that, you will learn how to test, benchmark, and make sure that your code is up to the standards required for a production-level library.

The ideal candidate is someone with a strong interest in both High Performance Computing, and Deep Learning, able to both work autonomously on a task and to share their progress and blockers within a team. 

This internship is on offer for a duration of 3-6 months. Although we usually offer internships for the summer, we are delighted to accept applications for longer or shorter internships and many of our interns have stayed with us to do university placement years or have become permanent members of our team.

The position is temporary and will be based at our head office in central Edinburgh. The successful candidate must, by the start of their employment, have successfully obtained the right to work in the UK. 

Starting salary - Competitive & Negotiable

Responsibilities

  • You will:
    • Improve you knowledge about Deep Learning operators, particularly how they are implemented and optimized.
    • Work on state-of-the-art, production level deep learning library.
    • Improve your knowledge of SYCL and heterogeneous programming.
    • Improve your C++ skills.

What We Offer

Codeplay is internationally recognized as being at the forefront of software development technology. Working at Codeplay offers unique opportunities and challenges to learn new technologies and to get involved in shaping the software industry. Codeplay's projects range from: creating tools and tool sets (optimizing compilers, debuggers, profilers, programming models & APIs, test systems/suites, etc.) for brand-new unannounced next-generation hardware; developing and optimizing current machine learning (TensorFlow™) and computer vision applications; research and development into lowering the power consumption of mobile devices; and contributing to new programming models and software standards (e.g. C++, SYCL™, OpenCL™, Vulkan® and SPIR™-V).

Codeplay Software is a world pioneer in enabling acceleration technologies used in AI, HPC and automotive. Codeplay was established in 2002 in Edinburgh, Scotland and developed some of the first tools enabling complex software to be accelerated using graphics processors. Today, most AI software is developed using graphics processors designed for video games, and more recently specialised AI and computer vision accelerators. Codeplay continues to work with global technology leaders to make the latest complex AI systems programmable using open-standards based programming languages and allows application developers to quickly bring software to the market.  Codeplay is also deeply involved with the definition of open standards, especially OpenCL™, SPIR™, SYCL™, and Vulkan™ through The Khronos Group, and MISRA C++ for automotive.

  • A friendly and relaxed working environment where colleagues respect and support each other.
  • Learn from experienced colleagues: our staff frequently give company-wide knowledge-sharing presentations on new software and technology trends, personal projects and other relevant subjects.
  • Great career prospects within a growing company
  • Newstart mentoring scheme
  • Flexible working hours
  • Frequent company social events (social nights, pot luck lunches, gaming, karting, outdoor adventures, and more) (Post-COVID!)

Required Skills

The ideal candidate is a self-motivated individual who can work through a problem from start to finish, meet deadlines as required to support software projects, and has the ability to work under pressure. You will be working on technology that is seldom announced to the public and could be several years away from public release, so confidentiality is critical. You should be able to work both independently and collaboratively within teams of varying skill sets and expertise. You should be welcoming towards, and able to adapt to, the introduction of new technologies, responsibilities and projects, as Codeplay works with cutting-edge technology and takes on a diverse range of projects.

  • Experience with C++.
  •  Experience with one of the following:
    • CUDA, OpenCL or SYCL (HPC/GPU programming experience)
    •  Some familiarity with neural networks and Deep Learning algorithms and frameworks.

Beneficial Skills

Knowledge and/or experience of any of the following would be useful for the role, but are not essential. You must be able to learn new skills, but will be given support from Codeplay's team to get you up to speed.

  • Modern (> 17) C++ familiarity, and advanced C++ features (template meta-programming).
  • Experience implementing Deep Learning operators
  • GPU programming optimization techniques.
