Technical Leader - Senior Compiler Design Engineer 
Location: San Jose, CA 

What You'll Do
It used to be that high-speed packet forwarding was performed in dedicated ASIC designs. These days we are looking to make those ASICs more general and programmable. P4 has been proposed as a domain-specific language for this purpose. We are seeking an individual with significant compiler design expertise to work with a small team implementing the compiler back-end, where the intermediate representation from the front-end is applied to the target ASIC hardware.

Who You'll Work With
INSBU develops high-performance switches for the data center and for the cloud. You will be working with the team that develops the ASICs at the heart of each of these switch products. There are only a very few teams worldwide that implement such devices. Every time you access the Internet, chances are, your data's been through one of our switches.

Who You Are 
Minimum Qualifications:
- MS/PhD degree in Computer Science or Computer Engineering.
- 5+ years of experience and strong background in compilers.
- Strong C++/Python programming skills.
- Experience collaborating on a large software project.
- Experience with a wide variety of aspects of compiler design including:
  * Code optimization,
  * Data flow analysis,
  * Code generation,
  * Resource allocation,
  * Compiler framework design.

Preferable Qualifications:
- Experience with non-standard target architectures.
- Experience with domain-specific languages.
- Ability to communicate with ASIC engineers.
