Subject: Compiler position with Cygnus Solutions
Date: Mon, 12 Apr 1999 00:19:29 -0600
From: Jeffrey A Law <>

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. 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.
They will be expected to fix problems in any part of the toolset. They
may be required to setup code generation for any arbitrary processor in
the compiler itself and in related tools including the assembler and
linker. Development of optimizations both global and specific to
processor may be required. They 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 or Cambridge, England.

If you believe that you are up to this challenge, please send your
resume by email to or fax it to (408) 543-9521 or
mail it to:

Subject: IA-64 Instruction-Level Compiler Optimization, HP, Cupertino

Job Opening in the area of IA-64 Instruction-Level Compiler Optimization

Performance Delivery Lab
Hewlett-Packard, Cupertino, California

In this exciting position, you will be responsible for enhancing,
testing, and tuning state-of-the-art optimization techniques in areas
such as instruction scheduling, register allocation, global optimization,
memory hierarchy management, and predicated execution for next-generation
IA-64 EPIC processors.

You will work actively with a highly talented enthusiastic team of
optimizer engineers in delivering advanced ILP-enhancing optimization
techniques to the marketplace. You will tune and adapt advanced
optimization algorithms to work effectively in a production compiler
slated for initial customer release, paying particular attention to
factors such as usability, reliability, debuggability and scalability.

You will coordinate your work with other teams involved in performance
analysis, microarchitecture design, and simulators to boost system
performance by making appropriate trade-offs between compiler optimization
and processor implementation.

Requirements for the position:
o BS, MS or Ph.D degree in Computer Science.
o Solid background in compiler optimization fundamentals and theory.
o Good understanding of how architecture, compilers, and processor
      implementation impact performance.
o Previous design and C++ implementation experience is highly desired.

The Performance Delivery Lab is responsible for providing languages products
for all HP Computer systems based on the PA-RISC and IA-64 architectures.
We have delivered industry-leading optimization technology in our compilers
and have helped HP achieve breakthrough performance for its computer systems.
We emphasize teamwork, initiative, innovation, and appropriate risk-taking.
You will work with a highly motivated and successful team.
