Lab. These are all full-time positions.

Description of positions:

    Compiler Front-end developer - design, implement, and test compiler
    front-end components. You will work closely with the code generation and
    optimization groups to develop the compiler products for HP's next
    generation computer architecture.

    Code generation developer - design, implement, and test the code generation
    component for the new generation computer architecture.

    Low-level optimization developer - design, implement, and test state-of-the-
    art optimization techniques in the areas of instruction scheduling, register
    allocation, global optimizations, memory hierarchy management and predicated
    execution. You will work closely with architecture and hardware groups and
    optimize the system design with the best tradeoffs between compiler
    optimization, architecture and processor implementation. You will have the
    opportunity to work on compiler optimization for the next generation computer

    Linker and loader toolset developer - design, implement, and test new linker
    and loader techniqes to be used by the next generation computer architecture.

    Optimization/performance support engineer - increase the level of compiler
    optimization usage and hence performance of strategic applications on HP
    platforms. Involves consultation and hands-on performance tuning. Also
    increase the level of optimization usage among general customers by
    improving optimizer marketing, training and consulting materials,
    optimizer usability and customer awareness.

    Compiler technology partner support engineer - analyze compiler technology
    requests from HP's PA-RISC partners (vendors who have licensed the PA-RISC
    architecture) and software development ISVs; make technology licensing
    proposals. Provide technical consultation, training and account management.
    This position will also be involved as needed in performance engineering as
    described in the job description above.

    All of these exciting positions have ample room for growth and will
    contribute significantly to HP's success in the next decade.

Requirements for Above Position:

o BS, MS or Ph.D degree in Computer Science.
o Solid understanding of compiler construction.
o Solid understanding of compiler optimization fundamentals and theory.
o Strong background in computer architecture and processor micro-architecture.
o Strong understanding of how architecture, compilers and processor
      implementation impact performance.
o Previous design and implementation experience in compiler optimizations
o Strong communication and teamwork skills.
