Software Engineer (C++)

San Francisco, CA /
Engineering /
Full-time
About the role:
Ray aims to provide a universal API for building distributed applications. To achieve this goal requires a distributed system with high levels of performance and reliability. We're looking for engineers with systems software experience that are interested in contributing to the Ray backend.

We are looking for senior hires as well as less experienced but motivated individuals.

About Anyscale:
Anyscale provides an application development platform for developers to build distributed applications. We’re commercializing a popular open source project called Ray, which is a framework for distributed computing as well as an ecosystem of libraries for scalable machine learning. Our goal is to build a standardized platform for distributed computing. Ray was developed at UC Berkeley by Robert Nishihara and Philipp Moritz, under the guidance of Ion Stoica and Michael Jordan, and the four of them have co-founded Anyscale. The company raised a $20.6M Series A funding led by Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) with participation from NEA, Intel Capital, Ant Financial, Amplify Partners, 11.2 Capital, and The House Fund.

With Ray, we're making it easy to program at any scale (from your laptop to the datacenter) by providing easy-to-use, general-purpose, and high-performance tools. In addition, we are building a rich ecosystem of libraries (for reinforcement learning, hyperparameter search, experiment management, machine learning training, prediction serving, and more) on top of the core distributed system so that users can rapidly build sophisticated applications. Help us build the future of software development.

We are looking for passionate, motivated people who are excited to build tools to power the next generation of cloud applications.

As part of your role you will:

    • Develop high quality open source software to simplify distributed programming (Ray)
    • Identify, implement, and evaluate architectural improvements to Ray core
    • Improve the testing process for Ray to make releases as smooth as possible
    • Communicate your work to a broader audience through talks, tutorials, and blog posts

Requirements:

    • At least 2 years of relevant work experience
Must be willing to work onsite in our office.

We are excited to build a diverse team and encourage all to apply!
