We are revolutionizing AI compute performance.

And you can be a part of it.

Ayar Labs is shattering AI data bottlenecks. How? By moving data with the speed of light.

Working at Ayar Labs

At Ayar Labs, you get the start-up culture you’re looking for: flexibility, fast pace, and opportunities to wear a lot of different hats.

As a late-stage startup we also offer a more predictable growth trajectory, led by industry veterans and backed by our recent $130 million in Series C funding. As we move out of the lab and into production, we are supported by manufacturing partners like GlobalFoundries and product development partners like NVIDIA to deliver the optical I/O solution that meets the ever-increasing demands of large-scale AI workloads.

“Working at Ayar Labs has given me the opportunity to deepen my own technical experience, while gaining a breadth of knowledge in tangential fields that would have been difficult to achieve at a large company.”
