Compiler CPU Backend Engineer

Herzliya, Tel Aviv District, Israel


Role Number:200538227
The CPU and Accelerator Compiler Performance Team is seeking engineers with different levels of experience passionate about working on advancing compiler-based optimization technologies. Our team is responsible for optimizations and code generation for CPUs and Accelerators on all Apple platforms. We work across many different organizations on state-of-the art, industry impacting tools that enhance the user experience for all Apple customers with better run-time performance, battery life, code size, and enhanced security. A lot of the team's work happens directly in the LLVM open source project and gets presented at the LLVM Developer Meeting. Our team embodies diversity, collaboration, and creativity.


In this role you will be part of a highly motivated group of engineers dedicated to pushing compiler technology to the next level. Your responsibilities will encompass a range of tasks, including development of optimizations targeted at new hardware or programming language features, generic compiler optimizations in LLVM, advancement of link-time and profile-driven optimizations, and conducting workload performance analysis. You’ll also review and provide feedback on the work of your peers, and collaborate with them on solutions to the problems they are working on. In this environment you will continuously apply and grow your expertise, learn new technologies, and engage in projects spanning hardware and software teams. Your work will impact all classical applications used by everyday users, countless customers, and give raise to new applications and technologies. Picture this: next time you pick up an Apple device the software running on it will be using your work.
