Low Level Debug Software Engineer - LLVM/Swift
- Cupertino, CA
Posted: Oct 10, 2020
Weekly Hours: 40
Role Number: 200198031
The Debugger Compiler Integration team at Apple is looking for an engineer to work on debug info for optimized code in LLVM and the Swift compiler frontend. Our team works to deliver reliable tools for all developers working on our platforms. We strive to build a diverse, balanced and dynamic environment! You will join a team of motivated engineers who build first-class debugging tools. We hire people at Apple to do the greatest work of their lives and revolutionize the state of the art in their field. As the saying goes, "Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place". Your work on our team will help countless developers be more productive and ship best in class apps for Apple platforms, current and to come. Far more than any specific experience or skill, we are looking for engineers who want to build great software, learn and develop their skills, and ultimately enable others to develop amazing applications.
- Proficiency in C++ development
- Passion for crafting software and tools
- Strong communication and teamwork skills
- Positive and respectful attitude in a diverse environment
In this position, you will work closely with the LLVM and the Swift communities to improve debug info for optimized code. You will take a holistic look at what matters for developers, which could be anything from adding debug info metadata to Swift's high-level SIL representation down to improving the debug info handling in LLVM's instruction selectors. Most of your work will be open source on llvm.org (https://llvm.org) and GitHub (https://github.com/apple/swift/). You will join a team based in Cupertino, California. You also will work closely with the larger developer tools organization colocated with us. Our team has a wide range of experience. New team members quickly get to own a part of the project and develop independence in their work. We will consider non-US applicants and are open to exploring visa options, provide relocation assistance, and offer excellent benefits.
