Compiler and run-time engineer at Julia Computing

Julia Computing is seeking a Compiler and Run-time System Engineer to contribute to the core technology in the Julia programming language. You will work closely with maintainers of the Julia open-source project on implementing new compiler optimizations and static analyses, and performance engineering of our compiler and libraries.

Required skills and experience

  • Programming in C and C++
  • Some knowledge of compiler concepts such as type systems, code representations (e.g. SSA form), and program transformations

Desirable skills and experience

  • LLVM or MLIR
  • Programming in Julia
  • Familiarity with functional languages such as ML or Lisp/Scheme
  • Array programming and numerical computing / machine learning
  • Programming language run-time system development, e.g. garbage collectors and threading systems
  • Knowledge of operating system concepts
  • Familiarity with git and open-source development

We anticipate that qualifying applicants will have at least a bachelor’s degree in computer science, with coursework including programming languages, but this is not a strict requirement.

Most of our compiler team works out of our Boston-area office, so presence in that location is desirable but remote is ok.
