optimization, run time environment development, register allocation
and/or basic code generation. Responsibilities include designing and
developing software for Microsoft's next generation compiler and JITs
for Microsoft's Common Language Runtime (CLR). There are also

Title: Software Development

Want to set the standard for the next generation of C++ application?
Ready to design code that will be used and critiqued by the whole
developer community? Want to have a direct connection to customers
whose problems you understand? Want to build a new generation of
libraries for a new language running in modern environments? The
Visual C++ Libraries team is the place for you. We own all the library
code shipped for C++. We are building new libraries that drive
developer productivity and power on the managed platform using our new
C++/CLI language. Initially we have created STL/CLR - A Standard C++
Library for managed code. Next we'll have to understand how our
customers are going to work with WinFX and move forward with their
existing code. We are also evolving our existing libraries. These
include the C Runtime Library, Standard C++ Library, MFC and ATL. Much
of the work in this area gives integration with the .NET Runtime and
improves the security of our code. In future releases we'll have to
address some of the challenges of parallel programming, developer
access to technologies, migration of existing native applications to
managed code. We're looking for senior individual contributors ready
to code, design and provide the next generation of code reuse though
leadership at Microsoft. Degree in a relevant subject and five years
of software engineering required.
