Job description

Configura is looking for a senior Compiler Development Expert to join our Research and Development team in Linköping Sweden. You will work with a tight team of highly skilled individuals on the CET Developer Platform and specifically on our proprietary CM programming language. The CM language is the core of our product offering enabling rapid content production and efficient maintenance of very large code bases detailing real products and integration with their associated business workflows to CRM and ERP systems.

The CM programming language provides an interactive- and incremental development environment in conjunction with GNU Emacs. CM is syntactically extensible and garbage collected. The backend provide ultra-fast machine code generation or high-quality optimization through CLANG/LLVM.

As a Programming Language and Compiler Development Expert at Configura, you will contribute towards the challenges surrounding compiler development and the required toolchain. You need very good skills in C++, assembly, x86-64 machine code and architecture, exception handling, garbage collection, virtual memory and related subjects. You are a fast and fluent keyboard and Emacs artist. You can refactor and transform 200Kloc+ code bases without hesitation through sweeping changes to achieve higher level goals.

If you want to work for a company with Swedish roots and genuine care for its employees, this position could be for you. We see our low employee turnover as a sign of a successful company culture.
