Software Optimizations & Tuning - Full time

(UK) Cambridge, UK /
Engineering – Software Engineering /
We are working on software to improve the RISC-V ecosystem and help hardware engineers build great RISC-V based systems.

We are developing new and extending existing utilities for benchmarking, both fine in detail and broad in scope. You will focus these efforts on key customer and community software, enabling extraordinary performance on RISC-V hardware.

You will be learning technical and organizational skills from industry veterans: how to write performant and readable code; how to structure and communicate projects, ideas, and progress; how to work effectively with the Open Source community.

We are big proponents of Open Source and Free software and contribute back our improvements to all the great projects we use.


    • Helping Linux and RISC-V ecosystems by optimizing key software for RISC-V.
    • Collaborating cross-functionally with Si design team, compiler experts, and other teams across the company.
    • Running benchmarks or key customer workloads under simulation to identify performance bottlenecks.


    • C or C++ experience required
    • Rust experience is not necessary, but a plus.
    • Knowledge of CPU performance tools and Linux systems internals a plus
    • Excellent skills in problem solving, written and verbal communication, excellent organization skills, and highly self-motivated.
    • Ability to work well in a team and be productive under aggressive schedules.
