Job description
Fathom Computing is building hardware for the future of machine intelligence. Our optical computer will allow training of neural networks with unprecedented performance.

We’re seeking a talented Machine Learning Research Scientist with strong first-principles understanding of neural networks to collaborate with our optics and electronics teams in design and implementation.

While at Fathom, you'll work on:

Implementing novel machine learning algorithms on our unique hardware

Considering several layers of abstraction, all the way from lower level circuits through instruction set architecture

Designing new ML algorithms for future hardware systems

Developing, adapting, and mapping general machine learning algorithms based on features of our hardware

Inventing new models that combine unsupervised and supervised learning, with the kind of creativity usually reserved for blue-sky research projects

Skills & requirements

BS/MS/PhD, or equivalent experience in CS, EE, or related fields (e.g. statistics, applied math, computational neuroscience)

Deep passion and fundamental understanding of design, algorithms, and data structures in modern machine learning and AI

Strong understanding of the fundamentals of neural networks and common general algorithms including RNN, CNN, RL

Strong analytical skills (probability, optimization, etc.)

Experience working with large models

Depth and breadth of knowledge in the field, including recent research results

Knowledge of current frameworks (e.g. TensorFlow, PyTorch, etc.)

Excellent communication skills and ability to collaborate on a complex cross-disciplinary system

Drive to build something that hasn't been built before

You'll do well here if...

You enjoy thoughtful discussions fueled by problem-solving and logic

You're comfortable both leading and contributing individually

You're excited about the future of ML hardware

You enjoy teaching and learning from an interdisciplinary team
