Subject: Compiler Developer - job opening


In their position as one of the World's leading volume manufacturers of
state of the art microprocessor system devices, our client has a large
number of challenging new development initiatives underway which will
ensure their continued business expansion into the next millenium and

Their site at Bristol is the software development centre for 32-bit and
64-bit microprocessor products. They have a strong team of developers
working in the fields of optimising compilers, interactive debuggers,
configurable microkernels, development systems, profilers and
applications. Today they are working in the fields of set-top boxes,
web-browsers, in-car navigation, entertainment and mobile telecoms.
Development is centred around SUN and Windows NT based workstations.
Development is done in C and C++, making use of engineering tools such
as ClearCase, Purify, Sniff++ and DDTS.

We are currently seeking to recruit an experienced Compiler Developer to
work as a principal member of the Core Software Development team,
developing a complete range of compilers, assemblers and linkers for a
new family of extremely high performance 32 and 64-bit microprocessor
systems. The software team are a key element of this truly global design
and development programme and the successful candidate can expect to be
working in close partnership with other development teams in Japan, San
Jose and Italy.

Acting as "a centre of excellence" on compiler technology within the
development programme as a whole, you will write and develop high level
language compilers and other software programming tools for advanced
architecture systems. You will verify that new hardware (instruction
set) designs are suitable for target modern HLL's and ensure optimal
mapping of HLL's to generate high quality, optimised embedded code
whilst resolving inevitable design compromises.

Candidates should be able to demonstrate at least 5 years post graduate
experience in a professional software engineering environment, having
gained experience in the development of software programming tools or
system level software. You will ideally an interest in the
implementation of programming languages and an appreciation of (or
direct experience in) compiler development for a High Level Language.

Subject: Compiler position at Motorola, Chicago area

Motorola's Software Engineering Lab is hiring to fill one open
full-time position for someone with a strong compiler background.

Our 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

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.

Responsibilities of the position include the identification and
codification of domain-specific optimization and implementation
schemes. Experience in one or more of the following areas would be
therefore be valuable:

      * Optimization techniques
      * Compile-time garbage collection
      * 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. Our tools are implemented in high-level languages
(e.g., Lisp), and strong C/C++ programming skills are helpful as well.
We currently do not have specific need for parser and lexer expertise
or back-end compiler techniques.

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
      1301 E. Algonquin Road
      Room 2230
      Schaumburg, IL 60196 USA

                      (please mention comp.compilers in your message)
      fax: (847) 576-3240

The 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.
