Benchmarking Lead

Website MIPS Technologies

We’re taking RISC-V to new heights!

We are seeking an experienced CPU Performance benchmarking and analysis engineer to work with CPU architects, micro-architects, software engineers, and RTL designers to optimize high-performance CPU cores and sub-systems.

You will:

Lead the porting of industry standard or internal benchmarks to systems including bare metal and Linux based platforms

Explore performance improvements and work with architects, micro-architects, and software engineers to optimize performance

Provide performance verification support and help verify that the RTL design meets the performance goals

Ideally, you’ll have:
Deep understanding of CPU Architecture
Understanding of in-order/out-of-order pipelines
Understanding and experience with performance simulators
Strong coding (C, C++) and scripting (csh, bsh, Python/Perl) skills
Good understanding of industry-standard benchmarks like SPEC (06, 17), Coremark, CoreMark-Pro
Bachelor’s/Master’s degree with 7+ years of experience in CPU benchmarking and analysis

A plus if you have:
Knowledge/experience with RISC-V, ARM, and/or MIPS architectures
Knowledge/experience with CPU features that affect performance such as branch prediction, prefetching, and other techniques as well as internal performance counters
Prior experience with GNU, LLVM toolchains including flags for optimization
Deep understanding of run environment and internals of benchmarks such as Dhrystone, CoreMark, CoreMark-Pro, SPEC (06, 17), LMBench, Stream, Memcpy

Here’s what you can expect from us:
At MIPS, you’ll be a member of a fast-growing team of technologists that are creating the industry’s highest performance RISC-V processors.  Small teams that are part of a non-compartmentalized structure – you’ll be able to understand and have an impact on the bigger picture. A great deal of autonomy, with support from some of the industry’s most experienced CPU engineers. An unlimited growth path – with the right skills, you can decide where you want to expand and grow in your role at MIPS. The opportunity to learn a great deal about the blossoming RISC-V architecture in cutting edge applications with industry leading customers.

At MIPS we provide meaningful benefits programs and products to our associates and their families. MIPS offers a competitive benefits package that includes medical, dental, vision, retirement savings, and paid leave!

More about us:
MIPS is well-known as a microprocessor pioneer, having led the way in RISC-based computing to enable faster and more power efficient semiconductors for a wide range of applications from consumer electronics to networking and communications. More than 30 years after the introduction of the original MIPS RISC architecture, MIPS processors have shipped into billions of consumer and enterprise products.
