Subject: Stafford, TX positions available

We are developing leading edge compiler technology and development tool
products to support our modern high-performance microprocessors. We are
seeking skilled Computer Scientists to help us meet the challenge of
providing the world's best optimizing compilers, assemblers and source
debuggers for a wide range of architectures.

In today's world of RISC, on-chip parallelism, superscalar execution, and
customized instruction sets, development tools such as optimizing compilers
and source-level debuggers are just as important as the processors themselves.
We are finding solutions for these challenges through active research and
hands-on development in several areas of technology, including:

rapidly retargetable compilers
instruction scheduling
register allocation
software pipelining and other loop optimization
interprocedural optimization
rapidly retargetable assemblers
algebraic and other modern assembler paradigms
assembly code compactors
architecture evaluation
real time debug
multiprocessing debug
modern validation strategies
advanced customer support strategies

We are not simply thinking about these topics or conducting experiments, we
are implementing these capabilities and delivering them to thousands of users
who need them. Our customers use our products to develop trend-setting
applications like digital cellular telephones, high quality consumer
electronics, advanced imaging and graphics systems and anti-skid braking
systems to name just a few.

If you want to apply your Computer Science background in a practical
engineering environment, if you like to program in C and you're good at it,
if you want to work on the industry's most advanced compiler and debugger
technology, and you want a relaxed atmosphere that encourages independent
thinking, then this is the job for you. We're looking for these

BS or MS in Computer Science
Knowledge of programming in C and assembly language
Familiarity with UNIX and DOS
Coursework and experience in compiler construction and computer
Familiarity with several development and debug environments
Citizenship/Permanent Residence

Stafford, Texas
We're in high-quality-of-life suburban community, just southwest of Houston,
where you can enjoy the small city atmosphere and all the benefits of big city
cultural events and major league sports.

Organization: Motorola Inc

The Software Technology Center, of Motorola Land Mobile Products Sector
Research, is looking for a self-motivated, experienced individual to
contribute to our

Knowledge-based Software Engineering

efforts. Our research group is developing tools for the derivation of
product-quality code for real-time communication systems from abstract
specifications. We have access to a large pool of highly experienced
product engineers for domain-specific coding knowledge.

Depending on your background, responsibility 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 or implementation schemes.

Necessary skills include an understanding of implementation/optimization
techniques that go beyond mere programming experience, the ability to
codify such knowledge (in order for it to be applied to specifications),
and the necessary communication skills to obtain domain-specific knowledge
from product engineers. A strong compiler development background is
necessary, although experience with back-end code generators and local
optimizations will not be 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 programming skills are required as well.

Experience in the following areas would be valuable: Compile-time garbage
collection, program derivation, algorithm derivation, partial evaluation,
type inference.
