About us:
the Company's silicon and software deliver the power of desktop GPU in a single low-power
chip, supporting inference for large-scale deep neural networks. Their technology is
based upon an entirely new hybrid digital/analog flash calculation technology. This step
change in power/performance enables a range of new applications in a broad array of
verticals, including safety and security, autonomous vehicles, VR/AR, robotics and media. 
The Company is a fast-growing company with 70+ employees, $56M in funding from top tier
investors, and >$1M NRE revenue from two existing customer accounts. The company's
investors include Softbank, DFJ, Lux Capital, and Data Collective.

About the role:
As the Hardware/Software Platforms Manager, you will help enable powerful custom
hardware to dramatically accelerate neural network performance to levels 100x better
than what exists today.  The Hardware/Software Platforms team is the interface between
the IC design team and the software team at the company.  You will work with the hardware
design team to drive firmware development processes and develop high performance
simulation and emulation systems to enable our software team to create and test their full
stack solutions before our unique silicon products are available. You will be expected to
lead the definition and support the development of critical software infrastructure,
including firmware, C/C++ APIs, IC emulation and C/C++ performance models. At the company,
you will be a key driver in deciding how to solve technical challenges that enable our
