Subject: [JOB] US-IL-Chicago-Schaumburg Knowledge-Based Code Generation, Motorola

The System and Software Engineering Lab in Motorola's Land Mobile
Products Sector is currently in the process of hiring for several open
full-time positions.

Our main focus is the automatic transformation of high-level
specifications into efficient code and the development of supporting
tools. This transformation is driven by a knowledge base of both
general and domain-specific programming techniques. We have access to
a large pool of highly experienced product engineers for
domain-specific coding knowledge.

Our current code generation system has successfully been applied to
produce code that has been shipped in several of Motorola's products,
ranging from small subscriber devices to infrastructure components.

We have openings for people at all salary ranges and levels to
contribute to various aspects of our automated code generation
effort. Depending on your background, responsibilities will include
either (a) the integration of general-purpose coding knowledge, with
particular focus on data type refinement and high-level optimizations
(e.g., finite differencing); or (b) the identification and
codification of domain-specific optimization and implementation

We are looking for self-motivated individuals with backgrounds in
computer engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, or a
related field.

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. A strong compiler background is necessary, although
experience with back-end code generators and local optimizations are
not specifically required. Our tools are implemented in high-level
languages (e.g., Lisp or ML), and we rely on state-of-the art compiler
and parser generators, so an experience with either is a plus. Strong
C/C++ programming skills are helpful as well.

Experience in the following areas would also be valuable: compile-time
garbage collection, program derivation, algorithm derivation, partial
evaluation, or type inferencing.

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
research environment, please send your resume to:

      Dr. Frank Weil
      Land Mobile Products Sector / Room 2230
      1301 E. Algonquin Road
      Schaumburg, IL 60196 USA

      fax: (847) 576-3240

The System and Software Engineering Lab is part of the Land Mobile
Products Sector research organization, located on Motorola's main
campus in Schaumburg, IL, near Chicago.

Motorola is an equal opportunity / affirmative action employer.
We welcome and encourage diversity in our workforce.

Subject: Possible job for compiler writer
Date: Sun, 08 Feb 1998 12:06:03 -0500

I'm looking for someone interested in writing a C-like compiler. The
compiler output is to be stored in memory and executed immediately,
instead of being written to a disk file as most compilers
do. Knowledge of computer graphics is not necessary but would be an
asset. Compiler speed and compiled code speed need to be high. Target
platform is Win95/NT (x86), then Power Macintosh.

Salary, etc. to be discussed.
