Compilers developer

Igalia is looking to hire a developer for its compilers team. Our team focuses on JavaScript, contributing to V8, JavaScriptCore and SpiderMonkey. As a programmer joining the group, you will have the chance to improve technologies used by millions of JavaScript developers and over one billion end-users throughout the world.

Job position description

In this position, you will work on improving and maintaining JavaScript Engines for specific platforms, which involves enhancing code generation, adapting new changes, improving performance for general and specific workloads and doing whatever else it takes to improve users experience on these platforms. We welcome everyone with a proficiency in C/C++ to apply, especially those with an interest in compilers or low level (e.g. assembly) programming. Past experience in systems programming such as compilers, virtual machines, operating systems, embedded development or web browser internals is a plus, but there are many valid starting points.

Work environment

Igalia is a worker-owned, employee-run company with over 15 years of experience building open source software in a wide range of exciting fields. We work on the core of such widely-deployed projects as the WebKit and Blink browser engines, the Mesa graphics drivers, the V8, JavaScriptCore and SpiderMonkey language runtimes, and the GStreamer multimedia toolkit. We are also at the cutting edge of high-speed software-defined networking with our work on Snabb Switch. At Igalia, you can develop your career in a unique environment, participating equally in the management of the company via our democratic, consensus-based assembly structure.

Igalia is a remote-friendly working environment, enabling employees all over the world to participate fully in the company culture. Our team includes employees based in Asia, Europe and America, spanning both timezones and cultures.

One of the core principles of Igalia is equality, so we feel a deep and continual obligation to acknowledge and counter the structural discrimination that permeates our industry and our world. In a practical sense this means that we use principles of diversity and inclusion to help shape company policy and to maintain a safe and just work environment. We also feel that one of the best ways to accomplish these goals is to grow and maintain the diversity of Igalia itself. We welcome applicants regardless of their age, disability, gender, race, marital status, religion, sexual orientation or whatever type of systemic discrimination that they have faced.
