[llvm-dev] [Job Posting] LLVM at Cray

Cray just opened up a position for a compiler person to work on LLVM.
Details are below. I've been working in this group for over a decade
now and it's a great team. The environment is very collegial and
results-oriented. Engineers get significant projects to work on and
have a direct impact in helping our customers tackle the largest and
most challenging scientific problems in the world.
While a lot of compiler work for high-performance computing overlaps
with general compiler improvements, there are definitely features we've
added that are pretty specific to supercomputing. It's an interesting
space to work in, where the tradeoffs are sometimes much different than
they are for more general computing workloads.
In my time here I've done everything from developing new LLVM analysis
and transformation passes to writing backends for new targets.
Engineers have a lot of freedom and are encouraged to explore new ideas.
Most of those ideas come out of real customer problems so you get some
very real satisfaction that what you do makes a difference.
Note that while the listing is for St. Paul, MN we will soon be moving
our office a short distance away to the Mall of American in Bloomington,
MN. So engineers will also be able to ride roller-coasters during our
Please feel free to e-mail me with questions. I will answer what I can.

Position Type Full-Time
Description Cray has an opening for a motivated and skilled
software developer to join its Compiler
development team. The Compiler Code Generation
Engineer will work on improving the optimization
and LLVM-based code generation phases of the
Cray Fortran, C, and C++ compilers. This
includes both significant research and product
development activities, as Cray continues to
advance the state of the art with automatic
vectorization capabilities across a variety of
architectures. This work includes the design and
implementation of new compiler-based
optimizations, enhancing the interface between
the Cray optimizer and the LLVM-based code
generator, adapting the compiler to new Cray
architectures, and working to improve the
overall quality of the compiler.

development or equivalent combination of
education and experience, particularly with
regards to compiler optimization.
· Background in high performance computing (HPC)
architectures, including multiprocessing and
vectorization, is highly desired.

an advanced thesis in an appropriate area.
· Commitment to sound software engineering
principles, outstanding problem solving skills,
ability to work well in a cooperative
development environment, and good written and
verbal communications skills.
