Compiler Engineer Position

Cygnus Solutions, the leading open systems tools provider, has a
position open as a GNU compiler engineer. This position requires
general knowledge of compiler technology and skills in code generation and
compiler optimization. Familarity with modern computer atchitectures is
essential. A BS in computer science or a related degree is
required. A higher degree is desirable. Experience with gcc and the
Free Software Foundation development environment is a big plus.

The person taking this position will be working on GNU gcc, the "C"
compiler and code generation technology for the open systems community.
The job will involve challenges across the whole compiler toolset, from
creating a new machine description, adding new optimizations, figuring
out why an existing release is broken, and bug fixing. Work will be in
the compiler itself and in related tools including the assembler and
linker. This person will become part of an elite team of
compiler developers who have a strong commitment to the open source

Location may be required to one of the Cygnus offices in Sunnyvale, CA,
Toronto, Canada, Atlanta, Georgia or Cambridge, England.
