Hi folks, 


I'm looking for a developer to join my team in Austin to help develop linker
back ends for ARM and AArch64. Given that this is the LLVM dev list, I want
to be clear that the work involves close collaboration with our internal
LLVM teams so LLVM experience is a definite plus,  but it does not involve
direct development on LLVM. 


I'm ideally looking for someone with direct relevant experience, but I would
consider someone with a solid background in C/C++ development and a
willingness to learn about linkers. The job description is included below,
if you or someone you know might be interested, please send your resume to
me directly at mariog at quicinc.com <mailto:mariog at quicinc.com> .
