Working at Microway

Microway is a 39 year old small business whose software pioneered the use of Intel 8087 math coprocessors in the IBM-PC in 1982. We are well known for the quality of the hardware and software we have designed and employed over the years that took us from products that extended PCs into replacements for minicomputers and since 1995 when we played a role in the use of DEC 21164s has turned us into a leader in HPC workstations and “small” Supercomputers.

As early as 1991 our products were employed as OCR systems in banks that employed ML that today employ AI. We have deployed distributed memory parallel processing systems since 1987 when the processor of choice was the T8 Transputer— today’s is the NVIDIA A100. Our largest NVIDIA cluster to date employs 1,000 NVIDIA GPGPUs. As one of NVIDIA’s key NPN partners we have enjoyed rapid growth since first partnering with them in 2008. We are woman owned and operated since 1982: our GSA Contract Number is GS-35F-0431N.

The position is located in Plymouth, MA USA and includes salary, benefits, and opportunity for bonuses. Please send your resume to for more details.
