Full-time
Our mission at OmniSci is to make analytics instant, powerful, and effortless for everyone. The OmniSci platform is used in business and government to find insights in data beyond the limits of mainstream analytics tools. Harnessing the massive parallelism of modern CPU and GPU hardware, the platform is available in the cloud and on-premise. OmniSci originated from research at Harvard and MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). Now, our platform is transforming the way enterprises and governments make decisions by allowing them to interactively query, visualize, and power data science workflows over billions of records.

We are seeking a software engineer - new grad to add to our query engine development team. You will join an elite group of engineers building a cutting-edge query engine scaling to billions of rows, hundreds of teraflops of compute, terabytes of memory, and dozens of GPUs. Your primary responsibility will be to deliver new features, tackle bug reports, and build on existing enhancements by writing high quality, standards compliant, unit tested C++ code. You should have solid C++ development skills (we use C++17) and a passion for understanding complex, multi-faceted systems. Research experience with at least one of operating systems, databases, distributed systems, compilers, or GPGPU computing is a plus.

You will be expected to function independently on a fast moving engineering team writing production quality code. We will provide you with the opportunity to gain experience shipping enterprise grade software, working directly with customers to solve their most pressing problems, and hone your technical skills via exposure to a wide variety of challenging problem domains, such as LLVM-based SQL query compilation, GPU code optimization, and distributed MPP architecture.

Building production quality data systems deployed at scale is demanding. Your success in this role will be predicated on your ability to prioritize your work, be self-motivated and a self-starter, to speak up early and often, and to work well with others. You should be passionate about building software at scale and possess an intrinsic curiosity for all things computing. This is an individual contributor role and reports to an Engineering Senior Director.
