Overview

Neural Magic is an early stage software company pioneering a new way for organizations to run deep learning applications without specialized hardware accelerators. Based on decades of parallel computing research at MIT, Neural Magic has developed deep learning model sparsification tools and a CPU inference engine.

Our solution helps data scientists and ML engineers sparsify and quantize deep learning models to minimize footprint and run on CPUs at GPU speeds. Please look through our GitHub repos to get a feel of what we are about.

At Neural Magic, we firmly believe in a product led mission which puts user experience right in the middle of all the fun! You will have the opportunity to wear multiple hats as you keep a pulse on the markets and users we serve with product management, collaborate with end users to conduct research and drive offering requirements, and interface with engineering to execute on the experience-driven feature set.

If you are someone who wants to contribute to solving challenging technical problems at the forefront of deep learning, this is the role for you.

Founded by an award-winning team of computer scientists out of MIT, Neural Magic is a venture-backed company headquartered in Davis Square, Somerville, MA.
