Subject: Compiler jobs at Hengsoft (Palatine IL)

The Software Design Automation group, a core part of Hengsoft LLC, a
newly formed company with operations in Palatine, Illinois; Kiev,
Ukraine; St. Petersburg, Russia; and Tianjin, China; is hiring to fill
full-time research and development positions for its Palatine

The group's focus is the automatic transformation of high-level
specifications into efficient, product-quality code and the
development of supporting tools written largely in Common Lisp. This
transformation is driven by a knowledge base of both general-purpose
and domain-specific programming techniques. The current system has a
development history of more than 10 years and has successfully been
applied to produce code shipped in a number of commercial
telecommunications products.

Responsibilities of these positions include the identification and
codification of domain-specific optimization and implementation
schemes, their integration into the existing code-generation
framework, and the development and testing of resultant
compilers. Experience in one or more of the following areas would
therefore be valuable:

* Lisp programming
* Optimization techniques
* Program derivation
* Algorithm derivation
* Partial evaluation
* Type inferencing
* Datatype refinement
* Parallelization / Serialization

Necessary skills include an understanding of implementation and
optimization techniques that go beyond mere programming experience,
and the ability to codify such knowledge in order for it to be applied
to specifications. Strong programming skills and modeling skills in
UML or SDL are helpful as well. We currently do not have specific need
for parsers, lexers, or back-end compiler techniques as a main

If your strengths lie in one or more of these (or related) areas and you
are interested in working in a dynamic and highly productive
environment, please send your resume to:

Dr. Frank Weil
Hengsoft LLC
1530 E. Dundee Road
Palatine, IL 60074 USA
