the next generation MIPS microprocessor. Add OpenMP 2.0 enabling

Maintain and enhance multiprocess runtime library and loop nest
optimizer to improve runtime performance. Maintain and enhance

About SGI:
SGI's compiler group is headquartered in Mtn. View, California, but
you could work out of our satellite offices in Hudson, Massachusetts
or Eagan, Minnesota.

I'm a software developer in the compiler group, not a professional
recruiter. I started at SGI in 2000 and this is a much better
company to work for than any of my previous employers in my 20 years
as an engineer. Here are some reasons to consider applying at SGI:

Balance of Life and Work
SGI is not a startup, if you want to have a life, this is the company
to work for. Flexible hours and telecommute options allow you to
maximize both your productivity and your free time. Hobbies and
outside interests are encouraged. Families are supported. The work
atmosphere is very casual and relaxed.

SGI has a corporate culture of real respect for people and their
privacy, eg. no drug testing or petty hourly job charge tracking.
Company rules and policies are minimal, employees are treated as
professionals and adults. Diversity is celebrated through company
organizations for many catagories of minorities and special interests.
There is open communication with management at all levels.

Salary and Benefits
Very competitive and includes a 6 week paid sabbatical every 4 years
in addition to the normal vacation! Relocation and starting bonuses
are available. There is good human support for HR issues, no
interminable voice mail trees or email black holes! Responsive
technical support also makes it easier to get your job done.

Outstanding Facilities
Engineers can choose between private offices or more open areas.
On-site fitness center and sports facilities make this campus feel
like a health club. The gourmet cafeteria has been featured on local
news segments and typifies how SGI wants to pamper their employees.
Some buildings have underground parking, a real plus during our rare
heat waves and winter rainy season, added security at all times.

Great Company with State of the Art Products
Company Fact Sheet:

Buy Low, Sell High
SGI stock is currently low but going up. It had the largest increase
of any NYSE stock in October!

If you are interested in applying, you can submit your resume through
the company website at However, if you want to
make sure your resume gets directly to the hiring manager, send it to
me as text in an email message (no binary email attachments, please)
or reply privately if you want my FAX number.

Thank you,
Ginger Wolnik
Software Engineer
