Job Description

Qualcomm India Private LimitedJob Area:
Engineering Group, Engineering Group > Software Engineering
General SummaryJoin a new and growing team at Qualcomm focused on advancing state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence execution on Qualcomm SoCs. The team uses Qualcomm chips extensive heterogeneous computing capabilities and engineers them to allow the running of trained neural networks on device without a need for connection to the cloud.
Qualcomm Neural Processing SDK, Android Neural Network and Qualcomm AI Engine Direct are designed to help developers run neural network models trained in a variety of frameworks on Snapdragon platforms at blazing speeds while still sipping the smallest amount of power on billions of devices around the world.
Role Specific Responsibilities:
.As a Tools lead, you will be hands-on and leading the team responsible for feature implementation, deliverables, and customer engagement for our SDK tools, the AI Model Efficiency Toolkit (AIMET) and other tools focused on conversion, quantization, model optimization, profiling, and visualization of deep learning networks and execution.
.Enhance AI software tools to support the latest and greatest DNNs emerging from the research community and OEMs, improve quantization algorithms, graph optimization and version upgrades of frameworks like PyTorch, Tensorflow and ONNX format.
.You will work closely with other internal sub-teams within Qualcomm for collection of metrics at various subsystem like DSP, GPU etc. to provide a unified execution view on IDE and visualization tools for deep learning model execution to enable easy adoption and debugging of AI software products by internal and external customers.
.You will be working closely with internal teams on graph and model optimization in converters and tools to meet competitive KPI requirements.
.You will thrive in an environment which will require you to come up with innovative techniques for delivering best in class power, performance, and memory KPIs for our AI software tools like AIMET.
.You will also have to keep up with the fast-paced development happening in the industry and academia to continuously enhance our solution from software engineering as well as machine learning standpoint.
Generic Responsibilities:
.Working independently with no supervision.
.Team oriented and collaborative approach to getting work done
.Making decisions that are significant in impact, influencing overall program or project success, finances, and/or the ability to meet objectives errors are not readily apparent due to the complexity of work process/product or time between decisions and results errors typically result in significant expenditure of time, resources, and funds to correct.
.Using verbal and written communication skills to convey complex and/or detailed information to multiple individuals/audiences with differing knowledge levels. May require strong negotiation and influence, communication to large groups or high-level constituents.
.Having a great degree of influence over key organizational decisions (e.g., is making or directly making key decisions that have substantial impact on the organization).
.Completing tasks that require multiple steps that can be performed in various orders tasks require simultaneously executing multiple cognitive abilities and maintaining information in short or long-term memory.
.Regularly determines what needs to be done and is involved with sharing innovative solutions to achieve broad policies and objectives.
.Using deductive and inductive problem solving multiple approaches may be taken/necessary to solve the problem often information is missing or conflicting advanced data analysis and interpretation skills are required.
.Occasionally participates in strategic planning within own area affecting immediate operations.
