Senior Marketing Manager, Software and Open Standards

Codeplay operates as a subsidiary business of Intel supporting the multi-architecture, multi-vendor accelerator market. Codeplay is playing a key role in bringing about the wide adoption of SYCL and oneAPI amongst processor vendors and software developers. SYCL is a higher-level programming model based on standard C++ that improves programming productivity on various hardware accelerators such as GPUs. SYCL is a standard developed by the Khronos Group, announced in March 2014. oneAPI defines a specification that builds on SYCL with tuned libraries for specific domains including math and machine learning.

Using oneAPI and SYCL it is possible to write accelerated code using C++ and build a single application that can run on multiple architectures including Intel GPUs, NVIDIA GPUs and AMD GPUs. This is enabling projects including GROMACS, one of the most popular scientific research applications in the world, to build faster software that can be run on a wide range of supercomputers and clusters.

The Senior Marketing Manager will be charged with helping to increase adoption and expand the community using oneAPI and SYCL by bringing compelling messaging and campaigns to help developers understand the value proposition.

Top candidates will bring experience in developing plans with hands-on execution across multiple domains of marketing including events, online content, stakeholder engagement, and community development. Candidate will be results oriented and able to adapt to change based on the priorities of the oneAPI forum.

The position is permanent and may be fully remote, hybrid or based at our head office in central Edinburgh. The role will require some travel to events and our head office on occasion.
