Job Description: Tool Engineer

Software Engineers are needed to help define and implement automated software engineering tools based on DMS, a programming environment supporting a new software development paradigm.

Depending on tool needs, skills and interests, s/he may:

  • Define and implement special purpose application languages;
  • Design and implement specific analysis methods for programming languages or specifications;
  • Design and implement transformational methods for languages;
  • Design and implement tools to test other software from specifications;

Candidates must have a Masters in Computer Science or commensurate experience. A strong grasp of programming languages and compilers is essential. Experience with parallel programming, optimizing compilers, transformation engines or various formal specification techniques such as algebraic or denotational semantics are a definite plus. Experience in R&D projects producing large, robust systems is a plus. Applicants must be independent thinkers and strongly self-motivated, but must work in a team to achieve the final vision. Team members are individually responsible for large sections of the product.
