Subject: Compiler Development Jobs at SGI
Date: Wed, 10 Jan 2001 18:09:09 -0800
Organization: Silicon Graphics Inc., Mountain View, CA

SGI is currently looking for experienced developers for C/C++ Front
End, Fortran Libraries, and Compiler Backend (optimization,
parallelization, code generation). The compiler group is
headquartered in Mtn. View, California, but you could work out of our
satellite offices in Hudson, Massachusetts or Eagan, Minnesota. Our
newest line of compilers is open source, read about them at

I'm a software developer in the compiler group, not a professional
recruiter. I started at SGI last May and this is a much better
company to work for than any of my previous employers in my 20 years
as an engineer. Here are some reasons to consider applying at SGI,

Balance of Life and Work
SGI is not a startup, if you want to have a life, this is the company
to work for. Flexible hours and telecommute options allow you to
maximize both your productivity and your free time. Hobbies and
outside interests are encouraged. Families are supported. The work
atmosphere is very casual and relaxed.

SGI has a corporate culture of real respect for people and their
privacy, eg. no web censoring, drug testing, or petty hourly job
charge tracking. Company rules and policies are minimal, employees
are treated as professionals and adults. Diversity is celebrated
through company organizations for many catagories of minorities and
special interests. There is open communication with management at
all levels.

Salary and Benefits
Very competitive and includes a 6 week paid sabbatical every 4 years
in addition to the normal vacation! Relocation and starting bonuses
are available. There is good human support for HR issues, no
interminable voice mail trees or email black holes! Responsive
technical support also makes it easier to get your job done.

Outstanding Facilities
Engineers can choose between private offices or more open areas.
On-site fitness center and sports facilities make this campus feel
like a health club. The gourmet cafeteria has been featured on local
news segments and typifies how SGI wants to pamper their employees.
Some buildings have underground parking, a real plus during our rare
heat waves and winter rainy season, added security at all times.

Great Company with State of the Art Products
Company Fact Sheet:

Buy Low, Sell High
SGI stock is currently very low due to recent divestitures of Cray and
Mips. Starting now will get you hire-on options at a price that many
feel is a real bargain.

If you are interested in applying, you can submit your resume through
the company website at However, if you want to
make sure your resume gets directly to a hiring manager, send it to me
as text in an email message (no email attachments, please) or reply
privately if you want my FAX number. Please note that January 15 is
an SGI holiday, and that I will be on vacation January 29 through
February 2, but will otherwise acknowledge all submittals as soon as I
see them.

Thank you,
Ginger Wolnik
Software Engineer
