Subject: Microsoft - Compiler Opportunities

Group Manager

Microsoft is looking for an individual with an extensive background in
compilers and code generation to lead a development team in building a
new compiler/code-generation platform targeted at production,
research, and education. The platform will target multiple chip
architectures, support code generation for multiple languages, and be
the basis for building both compilers and jitters. Qualified
candidates should be recognized across the industry as a leader in
related technologies. Candidates should also have significant
management experience in shipping production compilers.

Senior Programming Model Lead

If you are up to the challenge of establishing the future programming
model for C++ developers on the .NET platform, we want you! The C++
developer is the most skilled and demanding developer in the world. It
will be your job to drive the C++ compiler and library innovation so
that .NET is not only added to the arsenal of the C++ programmer, but
is the preferred platform to program against. You will be responsible
for understanding and prioritizing the desires of the C++ community
and providing the programming model solution that allows them to
exploit key platform services. As the Senior Programming Model Lead we
expect you to be intimately familiar with C++, compiler design, and
community libraries like BOOST. We also expect you to have excellent
management and leadership skills because you will be responsible for
Microsoft's next generation C++ compiler. Qualifications: Must have 7
or more years experience coding and authoring libraries in C/C++,
great depth in compiler front-end architecture, management experience,
and a strong passion for C++ and the C++ community

Software Design Engineer - Visual C++

.NET sets new challenges for the design of code generators and if you
are up to the challenge, we want you! .NET needs small, fast, and
configurable high quality code generation for multiple platforms and
depending on where in the network code generation takes place, the
compiler will utilize various levels of resources to generate the best
code possible under the given constraints. As a senior compiler
engineer we expect you to be intimately familiar with how to analyze
and improve code quality using various benchmarking techniques and
tools. You should also have a great grasp of current microprocessor
architectural issues and trends, and where the computer architecture
industry is heading. As a senior compiler engineer you will be
responsible for and involved in the architecture, design, and
implementation of Microsoft's next generation high performance code
optimizer. This work involves heavy use of graph theory, dataflow
analysis, and data structures to solve complex problems in code
generation and optimization. Qualifications: Must have 5 or more years
experience coding on code generators in C/C++ and a good understanding
of microprocessor architecture.

Program Manager - Visual C++

Do you dig compilers?! Do the words SSA, Software Pipelining, Partial
Redundancy Elimination, Global Scheduling, etc, mean anything to you?
Do you have a passion for making code go fast or about microprocessors
in general? If so, the Visual C++ team has the perfect position for
you. We're looking for a Program Manager who has prior experience
with compilers (Front-end and/or backend) to join the backend team and
help VC++ be the best serious programming tool for the Windows
world. The ideal candidate has previously worked on code generators
and/or global optimizers for at least 4 years. College grads (master
preferred) whose thesis/course emphasis was in compilation technology
are also encouraged to apply. JIT experience is a plus. Job duties
will include working closely with the development team on defining the
features of Microsoft's next generation of code generation technology
for static compilation, JITers, Profilers, etc.

For immediate consideration, please forward a current resume/CV to:
