Job Description

The compiler team within the Software and Advanced Technology Group at Intel has a 12-16 month internship opportunity available for a Compiler Engineer starting in May 2023. This is a great opportunity to work on cutting-edge technologies to design, develop, debug, and test compiler software and programming languages.

You will be working on the LLVM-based compilers part of the Intel oneAPI toolkit, contributing in areas such as advanced compiler optimizations and features specifically for Intel architectures, parallelization and vectorization through compilers, or implementing programming models such as SYCL or OpenMP to target brand-new hardware such as GPUs or FPGAs.

As an intern in this role, you will have an opportunity to work and collaborate with hardware engineering teams, external partners and be a member of communities developing compilers, and participate in language and standard groups.

Your responsibilities may include, but are not limited to:

- Design and development of Clang FE, DPC++, SYCL technologies, and tools.
- Development of test cases to cover new functionality and to increase code coverage.
- Work with other compiler engineers and architects.
- Work on other compiler technologies.
- Design, develop, debug and test compiler software and programming languages e.g. advanced compiler optimizations and features specifically for Intel architectures, parallelization and vectorization through compilers, and new programming languages support.
- May work directly with companies and communities developing compilers, and participate in language and standard groups.


You must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates.

Experience listed below would be obtained through a combination of your school work, classes, research, or relevant previous job and internship experiences.

Minimum Qualifications:

- Must be pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Computer/Electrical/Software Engineering, or a related discipline.
- At least 6 months of experience with C++
- Experience with Linux or Unix-like development.

Preferred Qualifications:

- Academic or professional experience in compiler construction/optimization (Clang/LLVM, gcc, etc).
- Knowledge of processor architectures and hardware accelerators such as GPU/FPGA.
- Experience with SYCL, CUDA, OMP, performance tuning, parallel programming, and/or debuggers.

This position is not eligible for employment-based visa/immigration sponsorship.  Intel sponsors individuals for employment-based visas for positions where we experience a shortage of US Workers. These skills shortage roles are typically STEM contributing positions requiring a Master's or Ph.D. degree, or a Bachelor's degree with three years of related job experience.  This position does not qualify for Intel Sponsorship because it is either (1) a non-STEM contributing position, or (2) a STEM position that only requires a Bachelor's degree and less than three years of experience.
