Job Summary

Our proprietary optimizing compiler is a key strategic focus of the MathWorks. Both the language and the compiler are actively developed by a talented team of programming language and compiler experts.  

Compiling the dynamically-typed matrix-oriented MATLAB language to embedded systems is not a well-studied problem.  You will need to determine the optimal tradeoff between supported subset, usability, and the quality of the generated code.  Then, implement your vision and ship it.

Over a million customers use our tools in designing the next generation of automobiles, airplanes, cell phones, radar systems, and spacecraft.  If you have not heard of us, ask an engineer!
