AWS Inferentia is Amazon's first custom silicon designed to accelerate deep learning workloads in the cloud. Powered by AWS Neuron, an SDK with infrastructure and profiling tools, enables complex neural net models, created and trained in popular frameworks such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, and MXNet, to be executed using Inferentia-based Inf1 instances.

We're hiring software engineers for the Inferentia-accelerated Deep Learning Team to help customers easily migrate their ML applications to Neuron and run high-performance search recommendation, computer vision, speech recognition, personalization, fraud detection, and natural language processing models with Inferentia.

In this role, you'll be responsible for developing integrations with The Neuron SDK and frameworks such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, and MXNet. You'll be planning and implementing new features, working with customers to create innovative solutions, and actively contributing to open source projects.
