Our application software engineers work with Cloud Service Providers (e.g. search engine, social network and e-commerce providers) to optimize software stacks for Intel Architecture. They contribute to the definition of future platforms targeted at this space, assist with competitive platform characterization and help define, configure and execute workload performance characterization experiments specifically machine learning using software libraries and industry harnesses in cluster level deployments. They also have the opportunity to enable the use of highly parallel many-core processors in cloud and other environments and explore the performance and efficiency of micro servers, FPGAs and accelerators.

Responsibilities include software optimization, power optimization, performance and efficiency analysis, configuration of performance analysis infrastructure, customer-facing collaboration, training and support, and the identification of best practices to be used in the creation of collateral and case studies. Other responsibilities include customer and internal communication (written and verbal), and working across multiple organizations to define and enable solutions in both customer and internal environments. Will be an advocate for Intel technologies with customers, and for customers' needs and viewpoints with Intel product developers. The successful candidate will be highly self-motivated, able to take initiative to resolve problems individually and in teams, and able to see projects to completion with minimal supervision.
