Subject: Compiler jobs at Convex (Dallas TX)

Convex Computer Corporation is looking for candidates in the following
areas to work in Richardson, Texas (suburb of Dallas).

Compiler Development - Optimizer Engineer

This person will participate in the design and implementation of the
machine-independent optimizations for our scalable parallel system,
the Exemplar, which is based on the HP PA-RISC architecture.

Specific duties will include enhancing parallelization features, loop
transformations, and scalar optimizations for Fortran, C, and C++.

Compiler Development - Code Generation Engineer

This person will participate in the design and implementation of the
machine-dependent code generation for our scalable parallel system,
the Exemplar, which is based on the HP PA-RISC architecture.

Specific duties will include enhancing our local and global register
allocation, global instruction scheduling, software pipelining, and cache
prefetching algorithms.

Compiler Research - Advanced Optimization

These people (2 openings) will participate in designing and implementing a
high-performance prototype compiler that will attempt to use new techniques
to solve compiler optimization problems previously considered intractable.

Beyond general requirements listed below, this position also requires a
strong background in graph theory, parallel algorithm design, or dependence
analysis. Beyond desirable experience listed below, these positions will
benefit from experience programming in a very high level language such as
SETL and APL or a symbolic programming language such as LISP and Scheme.

Background Requirements for All Positions

U.S. Citizenship or Permanent Residency. Hands-on experience in the design
and development of compilers for parallel computer systems. Demonstrable
proficiency in C or C++ programming languages.

M.S. or Ph.D. in computer science with emphasis on parallel processing
and/or compilers, or B.S. with extensive (5+ years) relevant experience.

Desired Experience for All Positions

Familiarity with assembly languages, FORTRAN, and Unix(tm).
Familiarity with scientific and engineering applications.

Special Skills Required for All Positions

We work in a team environment. This requires outstanding oral and written
communication skills. The ability to write clear and concise design documents
and the ability to communicate with other team members is essential.

Interested candidates should email their resume to
or FAX 214-497-4626.
