Algorithmic software engineer

Berkeley, CA. Engineering. Full Time.


JITX was founded with the mission to fully automate hardware design to advance science and the welfare of humanity. Our vision is to transform the hardware industry by building a hardware development platform where users can specify design goals and have all the detailed engineering handled by automated software. Located in Berkeley, CA, we are a profitable seed-stage startup, backed by Sequoia Capital and Y Combinator. We’re building the tool that engineers have wanted for a long time. Come help us do it!

The Role

We are looking for a brilliant algorithmics software engineer to join our growing team. You will be working together with a world-class team of electrical and software engineers to tackle real-world algorithmics problems. The ideal candidate is a creative problem-solver and excellent programmer, capable of breaking down a large complex problem into approachable sub-problems and writing high-quality code to solve each one.

Here are some examples of algorithms that you'll be working on:

  • Routing-aware placement algorithms
  • Pattern recognition and automatic generation of human-readable schematics
  • Massive design space exploration for cost, area, and power
  • Cost-function approximation and learning heuristics for expensive objective functions
  • Automated electrical performance and manufacturability verification and validation

Desired Qualifications

  • Experience designing algorithms to solve real-world problems.
  • Knowledge of advanced data structures, graph algorithms, solid geometry algorithms.
  • Experience with problem formulation using SAT/SMT/LP solvers, as numerical optimization (e.g. conjugate gradients, Lagrange multipliers), and as machine learning tasks.
  • Experience with programming language implementation (e.g. abstract syntax trees, intermediate representations).
  • Writes clear, well-organized, maintainable, and efficient code
