Senior – Staff Software Engineer, Compiler & HPC

Job Description

Bodo exists to change the face of analytics computing; to accelerate performance, scale, and simplicity for data-intensive applications. Ultimately, we strive to change how the world will compute. And we’re looking for ambitious, hungry, talented engineers to help drive this change. 

Our technology provides automatic parallelization and massive scale for analytics workloads, improving performance by 10x-100x, yet reducing aggregate operating expenses. This allows data engineers and data scientists to focus on solving business problems instead of dealing with the scalability and performance of their code. 

Bodo’s mission has been endorsed by investments from Dell Technologies, from data platform providers such as Snowflake, and from special-purpose hardware providers such as Xilinx. Not to mention by ecstatic adoption by Fortune-10 customers. 

Bodo is the culmination of years of research in academia and industry and brings High-Performance Computing (HPC) to data analytics for the first time. This is an opportunity to work with the creators of the first auto-parallelization compiler technology, which has long been a “holy grail” for researchers working on simplifying computing performance. Our mission – and hopefully yours – is to democratize access to parallel computing, and to accelerate data insights, ML, and AI in ways the industry can’t yet imagine. Join the team!
