Software Engineer – Compilers and Tools

Barefoot Networks is a team of visionaries, experienced technologists and engineers with a proven track record of success who have created a blueprint for designing and operating the world’s fastest and most programmable networks.  Our team is driven by deep engineering skills and a love of cutting-edge projects.  We are building the world’s fastest switches that are also fully programmable, ensuring the network can adapt to meet the emerging needs of applications and empower users to write solutions rapidly, and to innovate broadly.  We believe that with full programmability the networking industry will enjoy the same explosion of innovation as we have seen in computing – cloud and mobile.

Programmable data planes enable a whole new ecosystem of advanced networking applications, and the field of possibility is mind-bogglingly wide. It ranges from advanced network monitoring, analysis, and diagnostics, to building a large-scale data analysis platform, to embedding some middle-box functions in switches/routers, and to jointly designing a network and the apps running on the network. At the core of this revolution are the technologies that Barefoot is building: languages, compilers, and tools co-designed with fully programmable hardware. We're just starting to scratch the surface of this novel and exciting area, and we're looking for passionate engineers who can join this amazing journey with us.

 

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Contribute to the technical development of the compiler suite designed for P4 (http://p4.org), a new domain specific language and targets the novel architecture of the fastest networking chip (Tofino)
  • Responsible for the definition, design, development, test, debugging, release, enhancement and maintenance of software tools for the P4 domain specific language.
  • Responsible for both proprietary and open source software development for compilers and tools for programmable network architectures.
  • Contribute to the P4 language design and standardization and enable it to capture the semantics of new networking applications, allowing you to design new compiler optimizations specifically targeted for networking applications.
  • Design and develop tools that enable the P4 ecosystem and networking applications.
  • Work with hardware teams to define compilation and optimization algorithms supported by hardware features for the networking domain

 

Requirements:

  • PHD in CS with 2+ years, or MSEE/CS with 5+ years of experience in a software development position
  • Background in software architecture design, implementation and debugging
  • Experience with domain specific language design
  • Experience with program analysis, synthesis and verification
  • Experience in constraint satisfaction problem solving techniques
  • Good understanding of all aspects of compiler and related development and debugging technologies, especially code generation, program analysis, synthesis and verification, constraint satisfaction, and pipeline optimizations.
  • Experience with networking applications is a big plus
  • Strong communication, teamwork and problem solving skills are essential.

 

What We Offer:

  • Work in the Silicon Valley with legendary pioneers
  • Work with exceptionally passionate, talented and inspiring colleagues
  • High-energy atmosphere of a bold, young company disrupting the networking industry
  • Competitive compensation package with strong benefits plan and equity
  • Lots of freedom for creativity and personal growth
  • Excellent opportunity to be a part of ground-breaking innovation and make a lasting impact!
